I can't tell you how many times I have been happy with the 747's. Coming back from Monrovia to NY, we had to land in Boston with one engine. Wheeww. And Logan (Boston) is a short runway.

I found it funny how each airline gives the 747 its own personality. Pan Am was the best. Loved the Clippers.

South African Airlines was the second best, they trying to be propa like the English. Heathrow to Jo-Berg was always a hoot on SAA.

I am thinking the competition is good.

Retired, I hardly fly anymore. Such a shame. There is no greater experience in the world if you pay attention and don't go to sleep when there is daylight.

Pan Am will always remain my favorite. Juan Trippe was an amazing man. I never flew SAA but I've flown many, My favorite will remain "Red Tail" airlines though.

My dream flight would have been on the Boeing Model 314. If you go to the Boeing Museum of flight they have very little on it. What a shame...it was one heck of a plane.
