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.
