  •  PJEvans, We had a bunch of 747's at Pinal Air Park (5+ / 0-)

    near Tucson undergoing refit and repair. They stood head and shoulders above the other planes there.

     Watching them lumber through the sky on approach was something. Ya wonder how something so big can fly so slow and still stay airborn.

    I've never been on a 747. My jumbo-jet travel was on a DC10.
    I have been on the 747's and the Lockheed L 1011, the Conestoga Wagon of the Skies. The 747 is a much sweeter ride.
    Can you tell I didn't think much of the L 1011?

    Never rode the DC 10 though.
