I rode on one about 1981 I really liked the wide body design.
Reminds me of an "Audio Adrenaline" song called "DC-10"..."what if a DC-10 fell on your head?..."John,I hope and pray that things are going better in you and your family's lives, bro.
I remember the Concorde pictures...I had just started visiting your blog back then....:)and today my FIL send me a scanned copy of an old tattered pic of his mom with her cousin as kids... i wonder if i can ever restore it ....reminded me of you and your love for restoring the old family pics :)
It was one of the old British Caledonian Airways DC10s that BA acquired after they bought BCAL. I used to work for BCAL and flew to Atlanta many times on the DC10s.
Your photos really capture the plane so well.
I never got to fly on one, but in the late 70's I had a job near the New Orleans airport, and the DC-10 was my favorite plane to watch taking off. It had a real steep angle of ascent compared to the other jets.
WOW!!!We flew by Delta ailines to Caota Rica, nice company and good planes. I don't really know which kind we flwe with, like the shots...:) JoAnn from Holland(today a RED cow's face...)
Cool photos. It must have been great to get so 'up close and personal' with the aircraft. And fancy seeing Concorde too! I grew up near where it was built and used to see it a lot!
Ooh! A BA DC-10!?! That's a classic! Now they are being converted to freighters or scrapped in the desert.My last DC-10 flight was in '03 on Northwest ... Seattle to Honolulu.
