As has been noted, the Tower District is indeed alive and well, especially this week with the Rogue Festival going on. I had a great time at the Sequoia Brewing Co. last night. The line was out the door but thankfully a seat was open at the bar where I joined a couple of ladies who'd lived in Fresno since the 70s along with a young audiologist from Louisiana who was doing his residency in Fresno. Food, beer, live music and company were all superb. I must return soon - if only for another pint of that deliciously hopped Mt. Whitney XPA.

I'm running a bit late this morning so for the record, jrl767, WHBM and JL are all correct in your responses. Well done! ^^

: Both aircraft were wide-bodies.

How about WD's less numerous jets: DC-10 and A300?

How 'bout 'em? Not like there were a lot of other choices - good recall of fleets there, J!

A quick call to your travel agent reveals a thrice weekly jet flight from JFK into the nearby airport at Greenbrier (LWB). Identify the airline and the aircraft used on this flight.

Well, I think Air Atlanta may have still been around at this point. If so, the aircraft was probably a Boeing 727-100 with the flight continuing on from LWB to ATL.


Correct! The flight operated just three days per week.

TWA?

Up Up & Away with TWA! ^

Sorry gang - I've no OAG with me to transcribe schedules. Let me know if you're interested in any of the above flights and I'll be happy to transcribe them when I get home. My flights home are a trio of 737s - a -700, a -900 and a -400.
