This was for me the high light of this years releases. I really like the retro look on this one.

Wow, that's a lovely model. It would go nicely with my GJ 727.

I dig that retro shot! This is a lovely model although I never got to see the real flying machines myself. Did they ever fly to U.K.?

Yes, in the 1970s with the 747 and then the DC-10 National flew to London. They subsequently added Paris, Amsterdam, Zurich and Frankfurt to their list of European destinations. They were, however, a predominantly U.S. domestic airline.

The "Sun King" livery was very nice. We desperately need more like it today.

I am the opposit, I was keen to get this but thought it didn't look as good as I thought it would when I saw it in the store. So i'll probably get it the next time I see it thanks for sharing!

I used to love to watch the National 747s arc up and away over Jamaica Bay and
the Rockaways out of JFK in the early 1970's, when everybody flew 747s both foreign, and domestic, a classic livery,on a classic ship : ) Buon Natale !!!

Yup. into LHR. 1st DC8s then 747 then dc10
I have logged the DC8s N108RD N109RD
and 747s N77772 N77773
unfortunely missed the dc10s as moved away.
