This week Pan Am announced it will begin regularly scheduled flights to Iraq, Iran, and other key destinations in the Middle East. Pan Am also announced it may consider adding North Korea to it's routes at a future date.



Nothing but the finest get to say hello to Iraq!

The plane in the background on the right looks like a B-1B Lancer.

Yep that's a B-1. Also known as the BONE or HAWK.

BONE=Broke on the north end, referring to where it was parked on the ramp when I was at Dyess AFB. I was glad I worked the KC-135.

HAWK= Holiday and Weekend Killer. I heard that at Ellsworth AFB because it was always broke in the early years and the crew were always on the job repairing it.

Someone photo shopped the pic as the flightline looks like Tinker AFB Oklahoma Depot.

Is that a B-52 "stratofortress"?
To be more exact, it's a B-52H.

As for in-flight movies, only if you consider looking at a radar screen the latest in entertainment. Seating -- you can forget about comfort since they are ejection seats (and could kill you if you pull the wrong handle!)

Meals -- Fuhgeddaboudit! Just settle for a box nasty or two from the chow hall - zero creature comforts!

But watching 'em devastate a terrorist stronghold... priceless! :D
