Re: Some Gemini vs. Inflight 767-300 comparisons

I think it’s more to do with it being tail heavy but I have a pack of small magnets that I can add to extend it.

Re: Gemini 200 April 2021 are announced.

The 767’s were retired last spring.

In all reality, only a MD-80 or 767 would have really fit the bill. TWA didn’t acquire their first 757 until they had already rebranded for their final time.

Re: Delta Gets Tough With Licensing

What difference does it make? Did you have a written agreement? Sounds like someone got to use something for free for 20 years. It still doesn’t make it your property or give you a right to use it.
