Indeed, and I think that's Adrian standing on the Observation Deck.

Just now looking thru this incredibly FINE collection of photos.
Thanks Sal !

I too love the SPs!
My goodness. I never knew YOU flew them Transnat! Or was it 'flew IN them'???
I've always looked at them as 'Sports Cars'. Not sure if it is true or not...

I had a friend in of all things a Model Railroad Club. Way back in the 80s.
A friendly 'older' gentleman who took notice of my interest in Airliners.
One day he mentioned he had been a 747 pilot for PAN AM. (He was retired).
We got to talking and as it turns out he had flown the SP as well as the other 747s toward the end of his career.

He got a Big Grin on his face when I asked what it was like to fly one!


Great fun here. Thanks a lot guys!
Peter

The SP and the new -8 are the only series to mess with the original fuselage length.
