    Thanks for sharing! Rick
    Yep, that worked for decades. Jet-ways are fairly new in the commercial flying. As are jets as well.

    Not that I'm old. But my first commercial flights as a passenger were all on recips. We walked onto the tarmac and boarded from a rolling ramp as seen behind the aircraft in picture 21.

    In fact thinking about it, my first flight on a 707, which had more space in coach than almost anyone has in 1st Class nowadays, was boarded from KSDF using a roll up ramp as well. Did I mention passenger room in coach? The console between seats on that 707 was about the same width as a typical coach seat is today!

    Being an old chopper guy I usually fly low and slow.

    Hi Larry, after a long search, I found "email" option. And I hope this message will reach you as email. Otherwise I am unaware how to send private messages on this forum.

    Currently we are working along with Luxair on a special order of F27 aircraft models. They wish to use one of your photos on the packaging.

    Could you please get in touch with Michael on: info@aviation-trading-hamburg.de

    Thanking you in advance.
    Maverick
