With the weather here near minumums today I was poking around Airliners.net at TWE photo's. I came across the Convair 580. I worked with this company for several months before they closed. The 580's looked pretty good in TW colors not including the logo screw up on this a/c's tail.

I got to ride jump seat on these birds a few times. Those props sure make the plane vibrate especially if you're seated in the first couple of rows. Sitting in back wasn't to bad. I loved the windows. They offered a great view unlike some of the smaller Canadian RJ's.

I just came across another picture that brings back some memories. This picture is of a Saab 340A in JFK in October of 1990. This picture was taken when I was the Station Manager from TWE/Metro Airline Northeast in JFK.

Looking at the way the plane is parked and the shadowing, I'd say I was at work that day in operations above gate 39. The 747 to make up the JFK/FCO flight would be behind the camera man.

Ya know the old saying, "If I knew then what I know now...." I wish I could go back and do many things differently.
