Analog cockpits rule!!

I flew on this aircraft. 😃

This was my favorite episode of Mighty Machines when I was younger. Lots of classic aviation in this episode.

  • 40s
  • 50s
  • 60s
  • 70s
  • 80s

50’s.

The jets that built up the commercial aviation market in the 60’s (707, DC-8), were originally designed, first flown, and entered service in the 50’s. The 1950’s were also when jet engines were perfected and began replacing propeller aircraft in all sectors of the aviation market. While the 60’s may have been when jets ultimately took over commercial aviation, the 50’s is when the transition to jet power began.

Love me some ANA Mohican colors, I’m glad they have a 767 painted in this livery as a retro bird.

I would call that jet a “pocket rocket”

I have no idea if I’ve posted this here before, but at Shannon Airport (KEZF), there’s a really cool DC-3 that does airshow, etc. There’s literally no security, no gate, nothing, so so could’ve walked right up to it
