I, too, have very fond memories of the 767 ... I've crossed the pond so many times in a '67, often in Y, appreciating the '2' part of the 2-3-2 seating (rows 18 & 19 have great leg room) ...

Stranger , I think you mis-read RangerNS 's statement (I did too, initially)

I can't be the only one who's super excited about the Dragon launch tomorrow.

The US has only ever had four vehicles that took humans into orbit:

Every single thread you participate in, you spoil it by bringing facts to the table.

I'm not sure you understand what the internet is here for.

For me, none of the TAH AQM or...
