Re: Happy Birthday.

A plane that made the history of flying...but it's time to move on. I flew one yesterday and oh boy, it was like time travelling back to the 80s... it just felt and looked so old, not to mention the in-flight entertainment...I hope they will replace them soon.

I love vintage and old cars...but as far as airplanes go...I'd rather fly on newer airplanes!
