Yup and I noticed that Connie finally got some new birds. He was flying some of the oldest 74s. The one I hopped a ride on out to BAH in 2006 was #2 out of the factory.

Of the planes American converted to pure cargo; I wonder how long they will be in the shop for retrofit after all those C-containers tore up the passenger space.

Ah Connie. What a "legend" in the business. I grew up and learned to fly in Michigan near the freight hub of Ypsilanti (Willow Run airport the same one that Ford used to make Bombers during WWII). Connie and the FAA regional office were also based there. Connie used to fly around by himself in a Learjet that required 2 pilots by regulation. Sometimes I saw a blow up doll in the copilot seat. True story. One day the feds walked up to his Lear while it was being refueled. Connie was inside. Connie comes out, the Fed stops him and asks where his copilot is. Connie says he's inside taking a leak. After 45 min the fed says to Connie, "he's not coming is he?" Connie responds, "nope," hops in the Lear and leaves! That guy was always bumping the rules.
