Vole en este avión. Fué una maravilla y no se porqué Boeing lo dejo de fabricar. Podria seguir en servicio en lugar del 737.
I flew on this plane. It was wonderful and not know why I let Boeing to manufacture. Could remain in service instead of 737.
Brings back many great memories. I flew this airplane at United
After putting all the work into getting this aircraft Flight Worthy. Why not make it a Flying Museum. And allow it to tour World Wide as a symbol of the United States Aviation Business.
Sadly a OEM comes up with a design that is a trial; sampled and proved to be a good investment and so, comes the expanded model - the 200). Ansett and TAA bought them and Australia's first insight to the real jet age on the domestic tracks. One model own by an unknown company. Left Perth for Sydney if not Melbourne and unknowingly, broke a speed distance record. The 27 was a design that happened during start of the peak that led to the change of Aviation from American Manufacturers. For years the Flight Engineers, ATP exams were based on the 27 systems. The FAA and Kings Schools, also used that design for the FE Exams. Now with newer electronic equipped Aeros, the pilots of to-day have been scripted away from the value such a design, that excited flight crews and pax who worked with it each day. Even the Russian's copied the design, or I wonder if Boing offered advice. In short, the design created an energy withinAviation and to keep that energy alive, the 27 Aero should be given more attention than a final ride. (Why not used as a fund raiser ride whenever something import needs to have public funds donated).
