Default Aeroclassics March 2020 Releases

From the first Aeroclassics bought from the "reinvented wheel" system. The models arrived well-packed.

Air Canada 767-200. An AC 767 in this livery is a flown-on-for me. There may be a research mistake: pictures I found on Flickr and Airliners.net showed the tail has a fade-to-dark at the top. Someone correct me if this aircraft ever appeared as AC made it. It's something I may be able to do with the right paint, by watering it down.

Got the Saul Bass version. It was also my first order with Aeroclassics Direct, and it arrived extremely well packaged and in perfect condition.

Not re-released this is a very different version. Differences include:
  • New font and and case for titles
  • No shield on lower nose
  • Red not gold line between the belly and white.

This one was the 1969-1972 version.

Thank you. I hope it will be the same experience for you, should you decide to try this route in the future. All the feedback I’ve seen has been very positive so far.

What a superb capture! So atmospheric, a really lovely evening shot, and historic ✈️👏

Thanks - I used to enjoy hanging around airports, especially the three in the Washington, D.C. area, but anymore, it isn't fun. Park yourself out on the airport perimeters where some good shots can be had, but it's just not the same. Doug

Welcome. I know exactly what you mean. All the magic seems to be gone. When the old Heathrow disappeared, along with the dedicated viewing area, part of the hobby died with it, and that airport is just not the same anymore either. 9/11 really screwed everything up, and airports haven't been the same since. Now we have this virus to deal with. Sigh. Such good memories of a more innocent time!

Doug--great photo of the United 737. The first time I was at ATL as a 12-year-old was in the old aqua blue terminal's last year of operation. I'm really glad I got to see it.

I used to love making trips to ROC as a teenager to get timetables. It was an excuse to go to the airport, too. Once I moved to DC, IAD was a special treat because of all the international-carrier timetables I could get. I was so sad when paper timetables disappeared. Now, ticket counters are just....bare.

Jim - I used to do exactly the same thing, back in 1996 when I was 13 years old, with another friend, going in LHR T1, T2 & T3 gathering baggage labels and timetables, collecting as many as I could. Particularly prized were the British Airways World Timetables, as it was a nice thick volume which contained seating plans and diagrams of all the aircraft in service. We'd come home with a bag full of them, much to the annoyance of my mother, as to her it was more junk filling up the place! What great times those were.

Baggage stickers were my thing along with timetables. Every major airline had a shop/office in central London (some still do) and they were good hunting grounds for timetables. Anyone remember the huge British Airways travel centre at the bottom of Regent Street or the Laker Skytrain one at Victoria Station?

I remember the travel offices - when did the BA one go? I watched an early episode of a UK show called "Minder" and a scene was filmed in a TWA check-in centre in West London. That, and the West London Air Terminal, were before my time but it was an interesting thing to learn about, once I realised they had existed.

I can certainly remember various airline 'shops' in central Glasgow back in the 90's. I used to walk past the BA, Northwest and Aer Lingus travel offices on my way between arriving at Glasgow Central Station and the ten minute walk to my then workplace at Scottish Television HQ. The internet killed them all off.

When I was in high school in the mid 80's I discovered 800 numbers and would call foreign carriers from my parents' home in Rochester to get timetables. The numbers were listed in the Rochester phone book. The agent would take my address, and a timetable came in the mail! A different world. Great times, indeed.

Yeah there used to be loads around, a few are still hanging on in London but probably not for much longer with all this going on. The internet has changed everything. Even banks are disappearing now as well, all the once ordinary stuff we remember has changed so much.

Funny, I used to do the exact same thing collecting bus timetables, you'd ring a number and they'd come in the post for free. It really was a different world, I just managed to catch a little bit of it before it disappeared forever. Ahh, nostalgia!
