I see that she is finally off the ground at New Haven. I hope whoever is flying her treats her as the Queen she is. PS to new owner/pilot: you have room and cuisine at FD72 if you are in the area, stop by.

Stunning takeoff!

Sweet shot.

Great shot, John.

Many years ago, I worked a FedEx MD-11 at the Indy hub. Left Indy for Anchorage and then Tokyo, I was an international checker for the containers going to Tokyo. I will never forget just how big these birds are when looking up at them from the ramp. It is a totally different perspective than looking out at an aircraft from a passenger terminal gate.

Another beauty of a pic John.....
blowing snow & buildings really give the pic action and perspective.

Nice broadside of a 757 John....

At ATW I'm sure I have been under the plane at least several times loading it before its either Indy or Memphis departure.

You made a cool photo out of the crummy conditions just the same. Great job.

Great photo favorite one of the week.

Western only had -200s. The number 2 engine intake on the -200 is round and slightly elevated above the fuselage, the -100 intake is more oval shaped and the bottom of that intake becomes part of the fuselage. If is more obvious from straight on but you can actually see in this picture that there is a gap there. The 2 doors over the wing is a give away but the reason for that is the longer fuselage and the need for more exits because of the more passengers. I flew all three seats on this fleet and logged about 6,000 hours. Great plane - “check essential” will bring back memories for those that flew it— dan

Do we know if there are any SP's still flying? I came across this nice 11 year old photo taken at KSBD...

I flew an Air National Guard C-27 out of Tarin Kowt in 2012. The guys flying drove it like they stole it. It is (or was I guess) like a sports car and they had no issue with an unrestricted climb out of TK....and no issue trying to make the Army guys in the back see their lunch for a second time. Great flight, wish the AF still had 27s.

I do not see any rear exit doors...I think it is a -100. Rear exit doors differentiate the -100 from a -200

My father worked for Western Air Lines from May 1947 until March of 1986 in flight operations - dispatch. He loved the airline, I remember going to the company Christmas Party for years as a little kid. Also remember the day the Douglas M-2 was displayed at a special event just before it was given to the Smithsonian where it is now on display. For many years it was stored in one the the hangers.

Interesting that the paint stripe on the fin doesn't extend onto the rudder?

Written on 02/23/2024 by adelma

Two over-wing exits; it's an 800 or 900 . . .

Written on 02/23/2024 by adelma

Nice shot of a very interesting STOL aircraft; also made as a twin. Almost looks like the wing was glued on as an afterthought.

Thanks for the Memories!
I worked for Western 55 years ago. My Favorite Airline job.
