Twofer Tuesday: Sprung Forth From The Garage, Photos Of Things That Aren't There, Anymore.

Whist digging through the garage of the new Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos palatial offices, we came across a plane-load (pun definitely intended) of old 35mm prints.  And brace yourselves for some unique gems to be published in the future, as there are a whole lotta' photos.  I just wish I had a better camera, back then.

For today's sampling, we present some things which do not exist, anymore.  While the most obvious is the Hawaiian Airlines DC-10, what is not so obvious is that you, the casual aviation enthusiast, can no longer get photos like these without a ticket.  Post 9-11 hysterics now require every person through screening to be a ticket-paying passenger (that the 9-11 Hijackers all had tickets is of no consequence to the powers-that-be).

These pics were shot on one of the many trips my late-father and I would take to not only the perimiter, but to the various terminals for coffee and snacks.  There were some trips where we would literally spend the whole day at the airport.  Good times with my dad, they were.

Now, no longer possible.  Dad's gone, and so is common sense.

Saturday Is Legs & Butt's Day!

American Airlines recently brought their latest Plastic Princess, aka, a Boeing 787, into Milwaukee for people to lust over.

And, with the help of our Man-on-The-Spot, in addition to the assembled crowed lusting after some great gams and a perky, young, new behind, we are proud to share the Plane-Porn, um, the photos, with the world.

Yes, Even The Major Media "Jacks 'Em Up" Once In A While.

Lately, American Airlines has been doing a lot of training flights in and out of Dallas/Fort Worth with their brand spanking new Boeing 787's, and The Dallas Morning News (bless their hearts) was on hand for one of the occasions.

United Airlines Receives Its Latest "Plastic Princess," A.K.A., The First South Carolina Built Boeing 787-9.

After being kicked out the back door at "Boeing South," Ship 36404, N35953, was flown to the Mile High welcome of Denver Maintenance.

And, as if this whole affair was not only interesting, fun, and historic, check out the name of the FAA Rep. that signed off on the Certificate!

See, whilst other sites reported on this Boeing milestone, only Totally Jacked Up Airctaft Photos gets you the "Inside Scoop."

Even if it is at Mr. Butt's expense.

Shown here whilst out on a rolling tour of Southern California, we introduce good friend, aircraft engineer, and excellent motorcycle rider, Brandon.
