United Airlines Boeing Stratocruiser
This aircraft featured passing the Eiffel Tower in September's Pilot Choice pics. A YouTube video has come to light of a 1950 promotional video of United Airlines B377 California to Hawaii flight. It shows conditions and services of yester-year. Smoking, drinking, buffet lunch and free to move around, all quite different now. This video is well worth a look.
RED Airlines has taken delivery of an Airbus A319. This short to medium range narrow body twin jet airliner is in a class similar to Boeing 737-200. It carries 158 passengers and has a maximum range of 3700 Nm.
