Default Eastern 720s help me decide!

Just saw the recently announced three eastern 720s from AeroClassics200. The hockey stick stands alone and I'll probably order it, but which of the golden Falcons should I pick? "Fly Eastern Airlines" or "Fly Eastern"? I'm curious which was more popular, which was first, which you like better?

Me too!! I'm getting the hockey stick for sure. And I really like the Air Lines falcon the best. The little falcon by the door, and the "Boeing 720" logos add to it for me.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm having a hard time keeping up with all of these releases. I just can't afford them. I wish the manufacturers would slow down a bit.

Express your concerns to those who flood the market month by month!! I happen to agree with you, and I rarely even look at monthly announcements any more.

These 3 Eastern 720s are masterpieces, and I wouldn't miss having them!

I was just thinking about the Inflight Eastern 720. Thanks Andrew for releasing those. Now I only have to decide which one to get.

You are absolutely right! Much of us cannot keep up with this.. would have loved to buy the pan am and lufthansa 720's but bought one..can't afford to buy all four at once..

The Eastern Hockey Stick is one of my all-time favorite liveries, but if you go older look I too like the longer titles. They speak to me of the golden age.

Always pick the delivery livery over any "interim" livery. Those always seem to sell out first.

That is the livery that I am waiting for too. United terminal at LAX and 720s just seemed to go together so well back in the day.

Of course we would also need a United DC-8 to go along with that one too!

I'd like to see the UA livery just before they retired the B720 in 1972. The one in the pic with the italicized font.

Personally l like the second due to the classic livery but the third is the most iconic that everyone remember.

Did you guys miss this one from Inflight? Or are you saying you want AC to make it? I have the inflight and it is very nice, especially with all the polished metal! Eastern 720s help me decide!-image.jpeg

Yes I know, but I am not really satisfied with the details of the wings, unfortunately, flaps and spoilers are wrong and if I remember well, this model has spoilers ... under the wings …

Not for me.

Well , concerning UA 720 , i would agree , but concerning 720B , the IF 200 engines are too thin ( like on 707 300 B )
