Default Eastern Air Lines Fleet Update

I'm a big fan of Rickenbacker's airline perhaps because of all the turmoil, which makes its history so interesting. Anyway EAL is nowadays only my 6th biggest fleet with 47 aircraft in total. Here's an update to the collection:

You've got to hand it to Aeroclassics as they form the majority of the 47.

Very nice, what's your opinion on the 'new Eastern' 2.0? I enjoyed seeing the livery in KMIA a few years ago, and their fleet of ex QF 767's.

Aren't we on Eastern 3.0 nowadays? It isn't Eastern. They'll never amount to much.

Seeing as the Youtube channel is back up I have done a quick fleet video for EAL:

My faves are the silver bodies! Looked really good particularly on the DC-10 and Tristar. I'm hoping NG will bring this version of Tristar out soon!

Over 50 years since it was first introduced, the Eastern hockeystick livery is still timeless.

And now they've ditched the original Eastern logo and livery which makes me wonder why they bothered to keep the name in the first place. That being said I picked up the recent JC Wings 767-300 anyway. Growing up I never thought I'd find myself working on an Eastern 767 of all airplanes!
