Sad to see the old girl go.  I am not talking about the pilots either, both of them have worked to gain the competance they certainly have.

In the early days of the first women flying airliners in Australia there was no way I would have left the plane  (as some did).  I know they had worked hard to be as good as, and in the early days maybe better than their classmates as they did have to overcome predjudice.

In some ways though I regret spoiling this sad moment by making it out as a special flight by an all WOMAN crew.  Women fly in the left and right seats of most airlines, a mixed crew would have been more representative of reality and not an artificial polical hijaking of a special moment

The new planes must be quite a bit more fuel efficient to justify scrapping the perfectly working old ones and buying new. I imagine there is a bit of price creep by Boeing on the parts for these older planes to help make the new ones more economically attractive. I have a 20 year old Audi that I would like to restore but Audi discourages this by not even selling some parts anymore. I have to go to the Audi boneyards for some parts. I also imagine Victorville Aircraft Boneyard serves the same purpose for airlines flying old aircraft.

"That's a helluva a tire isn't it?"  Like that comment :laugh:
