Default Bored -- took a photo of models I've flown on

Well, I decided to take a photo of the models that I have of which I have also had the privilege of flying on. Unfortunately, I couldn't find my camera charger so I had spent all the time to set it up only to have to take a photo with my phone.



& here is a picture of my little girl sporting her AA gear.

Nice line-up, I love the Delta 757's in three liveries. Lining your daughter up for a life on the flight deck, haha, my wee girl is taking some interest in aircraft and flying now too

I'm an ATC and jumpseated. We can take two trips per year as familiarization training.

Very impressive. You even got to fly with "Critter". Envious you flew TWA. No Pan Am?

No, I never got to fly Pan Am. I never got to fly them, legacy United, or Northwest. I flew a lot of TWA, Continental, and Delta when I was a kid.

We used to do the same, but these days airlines hide behind safety and European regulations, so no more jumpseats for ATCOs

Good stuff. Nothing like jumpseating a Douglas. The feeling is amazing.

It does.. Only thing I managed last year was to get into cockpit of our Air Force One (Tu-154M) for a VFR flight 1000ft AGL. It was awesome...

Did you fly on those specific registrations, or just types & liveries?
I'm always watching the registrations of the aircraft I fly on, and the registrations of the aircraft I work on. If any of them get released, I buy 'em! I've got a few so far... mostly United aircraft I've worked on.

I'm not aware of flying on any of those specific registrations but I've never kept track of registrations.

On the L-1011 I went JFK to Santo Domingo (return was the same).

On the 747 I did Honolulu twice. Once was direct from St. Louis. The other was with a stopover in Los Angeles also from St. Louis. Return flights were the same as well.
