Please come back for a visit....again....!!!
Have a Great weekend.......!!!!

Mark Lawrence said...

You have a great weekend too!! And - I have to admit - I'm a TWA addict too - we lived in St Louis for 6 years when I first moved to the US from South Africa - TWA was my home airline - family traveled on the direct London Gatwick - St Louis flight - when Don Carty marched into St Louis and said nothing will change - I was one of the fools that believed him! I had a friend in St Louis that joined TWA in the 1960s - so he was one of the LAST TWA people that could not be got rid of by AA in St Louis - until he retired! Gosh - take me back to those days - the Rams helmet on the 727...the 767's to London - Lambert St Louis in it's glory days!!! I miss them too!!!!

Istanbul Airside said...

Hello Friends!
Really WOW for LAX in 60's!
Does that 'dome' still exist?
And those "X"s...when i see them, i start worrying about their flight level. If it's an "X" -not a "V"- it's O.K. :)

getjets said...

OMG.......Mr. Lawrence.....Thank You.........for sharing your connection to TWA Airline's.......I sent you an email.......of a video.....I have posted here several times...........I cry so hard every single god damn time I watch it....!!!!!!!!
Thank you for taking me back..........as sad as it is....I could not be happier about this sadness!!!

Please read
July 1st 1991, 41 years and over 50,000 flights later TWA ceased operation from 'Heathrow'......
Flight 701 to JFK..........
was just the beginning of the end...........
American Airline's.....A true Seriel Killer.!!!

getjets said...

You make us all Smile so Big......when you come to visit....and 'Congratulations'...on all the happiness........in your life!!!..........don't you EVER be a stranger here!!.....and oh my....yes the 'dome' thing'ie in LAX...is still there......so much time can pass.....and yet there's no real proof.........it's past........!!!........Those silly 'X's' .....can be confusing....my 'X' was lovely either way........!!......Take Care Metin.............So good to hear from you!!!

Bas said...

Hey Julie et al!

You know that pic you posted of that TWA 747, it is still flying today! It's the oldest 747 still flying, number three of the line if I recall correctly. Now in servie with the airforce of Iran, with refueling option built in the nose of the aircraft for in-flight refueling.

This aircraft was in the news last week because rebels in Syria were shooting at it during approach. Nothing happened I think, it was too far away for the bullets to damage the aircraft.

Isn't it awesome that this piece of history is still flying today? Only possible in the air force I guess.

Wasn't that TWA building in 'Catch me if you can' ? Only how they built 'm back then heh!

Haha Dave, cold eh!? Good to see you here Metin!

Hope everything is well!

Bas

getjets said...

Hey there Bas Man!!!!
Are you talking about the 747 on this 'post'??......I don't see a tail #...???!!!!
Very "Awesome"........to still be flying...!!!
Where is the info....'history' of the 747...????
I've never seen the movie..."Catch me if you can"...but I believe the old TWA JFK terminal building may have been in the movie......!!
Hope your doing great, as always......
Love when you check in here......with your "Aviation" family.......!!
Later Comrade!!

Bas said...

Yeah I am :)

Here's the link and the vid of the Syrian Fighters shooting at the 747. Scroll down a bit, you'll see the exact same pic with information.

Take care!

Bas said...

Woops, lol.

getjets said...

Bas.......OMG.....I can't believe the very same picture of the 747.....I've posted here.....is in this very Aweful Story....!!!!
The whole time watching the 53 second video....I was so f*ucking Mad!!!!......
I trust that NYCAviation......Just leaves me shaking my head....in disgust.....at these "Barbarians".........!!!!
Thanks, luv....for the link!!!

capnaux said...

Sorry, Miss T, too late. I already had an "accident" in the corner! ;)

Those basackwards uneducated MONKEYS shooting at the airliner are too ignorant to know that their pea shooters won't make it 1/10 of the way to that airliner! But, of course, the concept of those terrorist savages doing that is f'n chilling. Ironically, the airliner is probably bringing in humanitarian supplies for their sorry Neanderthal asses!

getjets said...

Bravo.......Cappy.....for your comment......!!!
Seems to me.......the world may never end......because...it should have..........by now....!!!!!!
Just leaves me shaking my head......
