Reports are that N306FE is still flying. The famous FedEx 705 birds rises from the ashes like an aluminum phoenix!

Yes, the Chinook is one of the best helos ever made, and fastest, AND still in production. It, however is a military helo, and NOT a commercial passenger plane, or an airliner. Come on, man!

Balloons are not airplanes or airlines. This picture belongs In a children's book about big and little balloons. Good picture, bad editorial choice.

Written on 07/31/2021 by Michael Wulfsohn

We've seen about 20 pics of the Il-72 in the last 4-6 weeks. Enough already! We know what it looks like. The editors should focus on pics of DIFFERENT aircraft every week. Pics by the same photographer of the same aircraft in one Friday's edition of this email is enough. We don't need 5 angles of the same plane each week, let alone pics of the same aircraft week after week after week. My criticism is not directed towards the photographers but the editors. This weekly Friday email should shoe a different aircraft picture for each photo "box," thus allowing room for more diverse pics of more different aircraft. Many of these pictures are "stolen"from other websites. Come on, really! Since I'm on a curmudgeon roll, I also don't like seeing so many general aviation aircraft, military aircraft, and helos. I though this was a website devoted to commercial aircraft and airliners. Fire the editors, and get new editors who understand what editing, AND supervision means. I used to look forward to seeing AIRLINER photos every Friday. Now, those pics are a minority, and the pictures have become extremely repetitive, and BORING. Get back to what this email is supposed to be. One picture per photographer of the same aircraft, and just one picture of a particular aircraft by the same photogtapher. I can go to to see hundreds of pics of the same aircraft. There are very few identical photos on that site, they aren't stolen, and praise is given to all photographers, rather than just a few, who get their multiple pics in this email every week, of numerous pics of the SAME aircraft, and then repaeat the same pics and planes the next week, and the week after that.The editing is so bad, that I am no longer looking forward to, nor have much interest in these photos anymore. Let's see some 747-SP,707,720,DC-8-60/70,DC-9-10,Mad Dogs,727-100,737-100,Caravelle, Convair 880 & 990,757,L-1011, DC-10/MD-11 aircraft. We've seen enough 747-8 freighters in and out of Anchorage. Let's see some more Lufthansa, South China, and other 747-8 PASSENGER aircraft in and out of SFO and LAX. Sorry for my ranting, but my enjoyment of this weekly email has dropped from a "10" to a "2." We know you can "make this website great again!". So lose the editors, get new ones, and make this weekly email interesting again, please. Thank you. I'm not a pilot. I live all aircraft, but passenger airlines in particular. Pilots never respond to my comments, because I'm "not one of their specialized "club," but I am still very knowledgeable about commercial airlines and all of their variants. They are a special breed of architecture and art that Infind pleasing. Pilots, please continue to ignore me (although I worked for Continental for several years) because I'm supposedly an ignorant peon. Nevertheless, I have the utmost respect for commercial and freight pilots, even if "I don't get no respect." (Rodney Dangerfield). Thanks for reading (if you actually did) my diatribe towards the steady deterioration of this weekly email. (Im not afraid of retorts, comments or criticism right nack at me, so go for it. I will respect your opinions, and I'm not a troll just seeking arguments from others. Thank you, and have a nice rest of your weekend. -- Michael Wulfsohn

Ouch; the inaccuracy of the ICAO and blind following by FA speaks volumes on what is important to whom; What a waste of a large resourse!

Great shot, JB. Amazing aircraft for the late 1930's. True luxury with metal fuselage, flush rivets and retractable gear. Far ahead of it's time.

It's like riding a bike...sort of.

Written on 07/31/2021 by ACFTTECH8


Yes the CAF changed the registration during the restoration to N47TB.

For all the commenters about DC-3 versus C-47. The ICAO aircraft code, recognized by Flightaware, is DC3 for both types. There is not a separate code for C-47.

skylab, I never suggested the PO-2 was any sort of threat to a Corsair. I was asking someone who was actually there (Jim Tyson) for his recollections.

Written on 07/30/2021 by Chris Croft

skylab, apparently you failed to notice my comments were a direct quote from which I cited at the end of the article. If the article leaves out certain facts, I suggest you contact the source of this article and enlighten them. The fact remains that Capt. Chambers made a bold decision,faced with a unique situation to make a ready deck to help Maj.Bung Ly and his family. I suppose you could say Capt. Chambers did not carry out his orders since he scuttled the aircraft in poor weather and shallower seas

@Chris Croft, next time please mention that Captain Chambers already had orders to ditch the Helos. He was aiming for both better weather and deeper ocean in which to follow those orders. Major Bung Ly only shortened the schedule. More than adequate justification.
