Should've done a 247D. Still, looks good.

Love the 70s livery. It brings back memories of my very first Commercial flight out of KGEG. A United 727 on my way to Boot Camp in San Diego.

If they reverted to the level of customer service offered 85 years ago, more passengers would join in the celebration.

Looks good and hats off to the planning dept. But in my opinion would have looked better with a 747, or even better a 757.

Sorry, I refuse to fly in any airplane that does not have neat graphics on the vertical stabilizer.

The interior is full-executive type no more than 10 seats. A real beauty.

I liked this paint scheme then, and I still think it looks great. Clean and distinctive, even in this world of sophisticated graphics, "wraps" and the like.

It would have been more appropriate to use a US made airplane! AS suggested by others, a DC-3 or a 247D would have been better choices!

I’d like to have them offer a flight, in the DC-3 or B-247, on one of the original cross-country routes.
