Super cool! I never got to fly a Republic jet when we lived in Michigan, but we were on the Convair 580 to Grandma's often. We came back on a 9 once, but alas, it said Northwest on the side in 12/86. Keep posting!

Hello N698SW
Thank you for he kind remarks. Back when I built these models I was living my dream career. They were a joy to build and collect. Rodger

I worked in the airline industry since 1969. Having worked in many positions with three airlines. My last position for 8 years was the Director of Charter Sales for an airline based in Oregon. My dream career....I love every minute working with the Best of the Best!

Wow! I'm on my third airline too. I went to the first one after high school in 89. Time flies! I hope you have more to pics to post because I enjoy the old a lot more than the current day stuff...(yaaaawn)
