9DEC23: Retro Minneapolis Flyout

Before Delta, it was Northwest Airlines! Founded in 1926, NWA was one of the biggest airlines in the U.S until 2010 with hubs spanning 3 continents, and a fleet of almost 450 aircraft from the A319 and A330 to the 747 and MD82! Minneapolis has also been the home to Sun Country airlines, founded in 1982, has since become one of the biggest ULCC’s in the country! Before the 737’s, they operated an obsolete and unique fleet of 727’s and DC10’s! Join me and my fellow IFC’er @Mort to show off the this city’s amazing history in a 1990s themed event!

The only thing stopping me from joining is 1. No Northwest 757 or 747-400 livery and 2. Minneapolis isn’t 3D yet
