MOST RECENT

I was lucky enough a couple years ago to catch a pair of frames only a couple years younger than me. This old bird has since been stored and looks to be moving to Honduras in the near future.

Sierra Pacific flies charter sevices for the military and I'm fairly certain that's what these flights were. N703S preceeded this one by a couple minutes. I believe they might have been bound for Dyess AFB in Texas but I honestly don't recall for sure.

So yesterday I was spotting near HLP and I happen to see this on Flightradar24 but it was going full north so I didn't expect much but 15 minutes later it was lining up for HLP. So I immediately rushed to get the ladder to get to my rooftop to get a better view and I snapped it. At first I thought it was just a government official from Nauru but after I researched through the internet I found out @lordemusic was onboard. She was performing in #WTF2018 that night and hence that's my story of how i saw Lorde :)
(lucky me)

First time spotting a freighter variant of a 737-200. Loving the old thrust reversers located directly behind the engines :)

So, are old airplanes more dangerous than new ones? Well, the long and the short of that is no.
———
Here in the US of A, we have nationwide aviation regulations issued by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board). Regulations apply to every single commercial passenger aircraft in North America and airplanes in the airspace. All planes must be in top shape and must be functioning properly. In other words, every single airplane is under the same maintenance regulations as any other airplane, given that they’re from the same place. ————————————————————
So a 737-400 series from the 80’s is as safe as a 737 MAX from 2018. (The types of planes pictured above) While older planes require more upkeep than newer ones, they are under the same expectations as newer ones. Equally safe.
————
Statistics show this too. For the most part, crashes are a mix of newer and older aircraft. A lot of maintenance and design flaw caused crashes are actually newer aircraft. Newer planes can actually have unpredicted flaws that are unique to newer models. When the DC-10 was released, it had a cargo door that opened outward instead of inward. The latch mechanism for said doors would often not close properly, resulting in an explosive decompression later in the flight. —————————————————
So the answer is no, airplanes (under the same regulations) are equally safe, no matter the age. (Although if you’re flying on a plane that’s from pre WWI, that might be a bit more concerning)
—————————————————
So I have have no clue who took the pictures. I spliced two together, and if either of them are yours, please dm me to claim.

Part 1 of 2
So recently there was a tragic crash of a Cubana de Avación (the airline) Boeing 737-200, original series. Here’s a quick summary. There were 113 people an board. 4 people, three women and 1 man, initially survived the crash but two died of their injuries as of this point. Upon takeoff, the aircraft was in a tight bank, and it was reported to have struck a power line and hit the ground close to the airport. ————————————————————
From what I’ve read, I don’t think this crash was caused by improper maintenance. From my knowledge, accidents similar to this were caused by the mistake of forgetting to extend the flaps. A plane cannot takeoff and climb with retracted flaps. ——————————————
All else aside, they haven’t figured out the cause of this crash yet. Both black boxes have been retrieved and are being analyzed. Mixed reports from witnesses add to the confusion. But why did this 737 crash?
——————————————
So, this begs the question, “Are older planes more dangerous than new ones?” And I have an answer to that. Generally, no.
In a second part of this post I’ll talk about the safety of new planes verses old ones.

All of my post descriptions are 100% original. >>> I am not sure where the photo is from. DM me to claim please! ——————————————

A little bit of history at Hobby Airport the other day. A Boeing 737-200 parked at Atlantic Aviation, will probably not see this aircraft this close again!

Throw back from April 2013. The boeing 737-200 still my favorite 737 so far.

Итак, тренировочная "кошка" номер два наконец-то готова. Пусть я и снова практически испортил своими кривыми руками очередной кусок пластика, но все же хоть чему-то новому да научился. Выглядит оно намного интереснее всего того что я делал ранее. Хотя ещё расти и расти... Не все тут так просто. Тем не менее, разрешите представить вам "Королевский почтовый корабль" (Royal Mail Ship) #Boeing #737-200 "Ирландия" с бортовым номером G-BGDR авиакомпании #britishairways, выполненный в масштабе 1/200. Этот самолет ждал, пока его построят наверное лет 10. И все же дождался.
