American have the largest Airbus fleet in the world. Who'd have thought that when they ditched the A300s?

It is astonishing to think there's such a relatively short time between the last A300's leaving the fleet (2009) and AA being the largest Airbus operator (2016).

I remember when even considering buying Airbus in the US made you a target for nationalist protestations!

Re: Did you know ???

I think the 70-80ies were particular nice for surprises like this....I remember even Aeroflot had a DC8 on charter after the break of Soviet Union.

Mostly likely Red Flag or general training, I know we have FAA pilots training for the F-35 over there currently as well.

As for numbers, I believe we have over 120 Typhoons alone currently.

New York Airways




Quote:
Scheduled flights to the top of the Pan Am Building began in December 1965; they ended in 1968, then resumed for a few months in 1977. In April 1966 23 flights a day flew nonstop to Pan Am's terminal at JFK, scheduled 10 minutes; passengers could check in at the Pan Am Building 40 minutes before their scheduled departure out of JFK. The downtown heliport had 13 flights a day to Newark, 5 nonstops to TWA's terminal at JFK and 12 to LGA, all of which continued to JFK. (Downtown had no weekend flights.) Soon after Pan Am Building flights resumed the March 1977 Official Airline Guide (OAG) showed 48 weekday S-61 departures from there: 12 to EWR, 14 to LGA then JFK, and 22 nonstops to JFK.

New York Airways employed the first African American airline pilot. Perry H. Young made his historic first flight on February 5, 1957. Young had previously made history as the first African American flight instructor for the United States Army Air Corps.
