    Very nice Larry! I have seen so many Tarom in the newer aircraft, but seeing this older classic in that livery is certainly a treat! Nice presentation! We never grow tired of the oldies, for sure!

    Thanks for sharing Larry! - Rick

    I agree with Rick, the shots and the plane are classic! But then again, that seems to be the case with everything you post!!

    Great series Larry - there's nothing like (or better than!) the old 4 engine turboprops.
