"Hold short. Company 727 inbound."
Certainly flew a lot on Eastern back in the day, especially between JAX and SYR every summer to visit my grandparents.

Love the Eastern livery of those years.:-)

Apollo Astronaut & retired Eastern CEO Frank Borman would appreciate this photo.

Nice Shot
The good old days before the incompetency of Frank Borman and Pirate Frank Lorenzo destroyed it!
Memories, Memories and more. I flew a lot of Eastern 727's and DC 9's back in those days. Great shot. Thanks for the memories.
That is a DC-9-31. Notice the 2 over wing exits. The DC-9-10 only had 1.
Great photo of two of the most prolific aircraft Eastern Air Lines used.

Thanks, I made the correction. I’m very happy that the old photos bring joy and memories to everyone. I’m enjoying my retirement! Thanks for the comments!
