Millennial here, in my 30s. What exactly do you mean, and why are you directing this at me?

Great video, no doubt. Love that oily smoke. Can almost smell it through my screen. Just wondering why you had to invoke an entire generation.

I wasn't, I was just trying to get some of the younger generation which grew up with Airbus and Boeing to see what old school boomer planes look like. I may be wrong but it is my belief that most have no idea or just don't care.

Then next time, direct it at Gen Z. Millennials aren't necessarily as young as you think.

I like how, after gear retraction, as the mains get almost into their respective wells, a giant bag of NOPE!

My avatar suggests my interest in the engines (and indirecty, the airframes) of the B-377 and C-97. So, there exists a C-97 that is airworthy and flying - that's a welcome surprise, and out of Hagerstown, too. When I was a lad growing up down the road a bit in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., we used to call it 'Hagersbush', but we were just snotty-nosed kids. Wish there was a similar example of the B-377 airliner version, but there isn't. Take what we got, and this is a great video. Hagerstown was also known as the production home of the Fairchild C-123 Provider, so it can't be all bad... Doug
