Yea an American Eagle Beech is crazy to think about nowadays, especially when you see that a lot of regional airlines today use larger turboprops and small regional jets.

Would’ve loved to see an L-1011 in service before they were retired. Truly an underrated aircraft that was ahead of it’s time.

My grandfather gave me some of his reference manuals today, from when he worked at Boeing (1978-early 2000s). It literally has everything about the aircraft you could ever want to know.

His job on the 747s was to work on the fairing underneath the wings, idk about the 777.

He gave me the 747-100/200, 747SP, and 777-200 RMs!

The earliest one was printed in 1968 (747-100) and the latest one was 1998 (777).

Not the best image quality but here’s a Fokker 50 picture I took back in Sudan (Khartoum HSSK)

This bad boy right here, was handed over to El Dinder Aviation, a Sudan based charter airline, from Sudan Airways. My uncle might have flown this plane once since he was a Fokker 50 pilot before Sudan Air retired them.
