Some of my best friends are bickering fighters.
Sounds like a lot of Dramaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
My sexiest flight of all time was a Delta flight CVG-SEA. The FA’s were all sorority sisters from Alabama and they were working their way to a girls weekend. They were fun!
Has the added benefit of being called a beaver…get it? Beaver!
Didn’t see this one mentioned, either.
Go ahead and laugh.
Am I all alone on this one, too?
Nope… And she’s got a pretty flight deck also:
Yaar. Nice office.
I wonder if prior to landing the announcement was, “Please bring your seat backs and tray tables to their upright and locked positions, put on your pants and prepare for landing”
Nice zensunry and welcome to the forum. Since we’re half way there, might as well go all the way…
My L-39 buddy sent me this:
After I hit the lottery I’ll be leasing out the second one, so get your name on my waiting list now!
Great… Now I have to go and poke out my mind’s eye.
I don’t know… I think the Howard was just ahead of it’s time:
Hey, come on, I went easy on you. I chose my father, not my mother. 8)
Lets not forget all of the Grumman water birds that graced the fifties with thier unique travel experience. The Widgeon, Goose, Mallard and of course…the Albatross!

I have to add the Corsair:
AU-1: U.S. Marines attack variant with extra armor to protect the pilot and fuel tank, and the oil coolers relocated inboard to reduce vulnerability to ground fire. The supercharger was simplified as the design was intended for low-altitude operation. Extra racks were also fitted. Fully loaded for combat the AU-1 weighed 20% more than a fully loaded F4U-4, and was capable of carrying 8,200 lb of bombs. The AU-1 had a maximum speed of 238 miles per hour at 9,500 ft, when loaded with 4,600 lb of bombs and a 150-gallon drop-tank. When loaded with eight rockets and two 150-gallon drop-tanks, maximum speed was 298 mph at 19,700 ft. When not carrying external loads, maximum speed was 389 mph at 14,000 ft. First produced in 1952 and used in Korea, and retired in 1957.
