My Trip on a Tristar
Here is a page about my trip on one of ATA's
We left General Mitchell Field in Milwaukee,
WI on January 1, 1997 around 7 AM in the plane above. I don't know
for sure, but I think that this photo was taken at General Mitchell Field.
We taxied and took off without delay, as is the case in most ATA
Most of the trip to was cloudy, so there
was not much to see, but it was still very interesting being 35,000 feet
up in this great plane.
Here are a couple shots of inside the cabin. I was in the
second section, last row, seat A. The seating in this plane is 3+5+3
As we got out over the Gulf of Mexico, the
clouds began to clear and we were soon able to see ships and the beautiful
waters of the Caribbean.
Here is a shot of the wing, you can see the age of this aircraft.
Are these the ailerons?
Crossing over the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula
The inside edge of the left wing.
The Tristar landing.
Our landing wasn't quite this hard, but our decent into the Cancun
area was very rapid (my ears told me that).
This was from another trip, as are the rest of the pics on this
page but I decided to include them anyway. This is at JFK International
Airport in NYC and that plane is a 767.
Landing in Washington D.C. at National Airport (I guess it is now
called Ronald Reagan Airport). This is the left wing of a TWA 727
with the flaps extended.
Taxiing to the gate, again at National, I spotted this 727.
At National, we had a little time between flights so I got to tour
the 727 cockpit, very interesting!
That's all for now
