214 viewsAirline: Romania GovernmentType: 707Registration: YR-ABBAirport: JFKCity: QueensState: New YorkCountry: USADate Taken: September 2010I know many of you will enjoy this beauty departing JFK's rwy 13L. To see a 707, let alone in action in 2010 is a very special treat. This once common airliner back in the 60's and 70's is today a very rare sight! It should be noted that this same 707 used to fly scheduled service from Bucharest to New York when it flew for Romanian Airline TAROM. UPDATE MARCH 2014: This airplane is parked in Brunswick Georgia. Future unsure.

I know that I can stump many aviation enthusiasts with this photo if I ask them to guess the airport. Most would say somewhere in the Far East and of course that would be incorrect

Note that the captain and co-pilot are a father and son duo. I am told that the number of pilots that can captain a DC7 these days numbers in the single digits. Most of them have unfortunately perished

This obscure 727-100 has been rotting for years in this airfield located in Laurinburg North Carolina, about 2 hours from Charlotte, where some airliners come for scrapping. If you have any info on this airplane please share in the comments section

207 viewsAirline: Air FranceType: ConcordeRegistration: F-BVFBAirport: JFKCity: QueensState: New YorkCountry: USADate Taken: May 1999This may seem like just another window shot but it's not. That window, while hard to tell from the photo is a tiny window in F-BVFB, Air France Concorde. With my friend Joe Wolf who worked for Northwest at the time, I flew F-BVFB from JFK to Detroit (yes, I said Detroit). What's really special about this particular shot however as our ATC and PA friends at JFK will tell you, a 4L Concorde departure is extremely rare. Typically the Concorde departures would utilize 31L/13R or 22R, primarily for noise abatement.
