Wow, and I still can’t believe that aircraft is still the most produced commercial airliner!

Very nice aircraft, I love the way they have been displayed in that museum. Do you know any of the types?

@anon31652286 One is a P51 mustang on the top photo and the other plane in there is the German Messerschmidt forgot the other two planes in the photos. The silver one still flies and on the 75th or 100th anniversary they are gonna take it out and fly it around San Diego and the uav and helicopter were both used in reconnaissance missions in one of the Wars.

The one that has all the fabric off of it looks like a Camel or some sort of Spad. Hard to tell from this angle. The German one is a BF-109/ME-109

These are all in the San Diego air and space museum in cali

I’ve been there before, too. Did you know they landed this 727 at Meigs Field? The runway was only 3,900 feet long.

Really? That’s cool. Isn’t Meigs field closed now. It’s replaced by Chicago’s museum campus

In all fairness, the 727 could fly very slowly which was why many pilots loved it, so close to the stall but rarely ever stalling
