Re: Aeroclassics November 2020 Releases

I haven't bought an AC release in quite a few months. But that DB Cooper 727-100, brilliant. Will definitely be getting one of those. I know lots of people have asked for one, over the years. I...

Re: A couple planes I would like to see made NG/AC

Agree with you, on both 727 and 747. The 747's are eventually on the way. 727's I would love to see, but probably won't happen.

I was excited to see the return of the AC 727-100's. But, several of...
