Is that what happened to Continental Can? When I was about 13 hanging around Morristown airport, they had a hangar and flight department, may have had the first corporate Jet on the field.




From the stories I heard, Continental went to jets as soon as they could for corporate transport. The company had a number of their top brass killed in a crash of a converted bomber, maybe in the late 1950s?

My dad worked for the company. He told me that the company had pretty strict limits on the number of executives who could be on any one airplane, and that was in the late `70s. The memory of the crash haunted a lot of the old-timers in the company.

Yup, big improvement in safety, those old "piston pounders" were plumb a---d dangerous compared to the turbines. Best thing we ever did to improve flight safety is convert to using jet fuel for work at the airline. "For work, let's use jets, if I want to play/nostalgia, we can fly P.P.s on weekends."

best, randy

Sorta. Household goods are en route. Airplane's at KGON, I'll have to come back for it, once weather gives me a good window for the trip. I start the drive out to KFAM on Friday with my cat Jake and a bunch of miscellaneous crap in the car.

Had three cats two months ago. Jaw cancer took Gracie six weeks ago, kidney failure took George two weeks ago. Gracie was a shock, I thought she had a tooth abscess, but no. That hit me hard for a few days, Gracie was my favorite. Hit George harder, once he realized she was gone for good. They grew up together and his kidney problems got a lot worse very fast. They're both over the rainbow bridge, now.

So sorry to hear that. Which one is/was the long hair gray and white cat that has been your Avatar?
