    Inspired by this thread: Things Rarely Seen Anymore

    One of my old favorites:

    [​IMG]

    An airline pilot radios to the tower and asks for the local time. The tower radios back:

    "What airline are you?"
    "What difference does it make?"
    "Well, if you're United Airlines, it's 1:00pm. If you're TWA, it's 1300 hours. If you're Allegheny, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 1."

    Airfix model of the Orion III spaceplane.
    The Orion III is a fictional passenger spaceplane seen in 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is a two-stage spacecraft launched on a reusable winged booster. It is equipped with aerospike rocket engines and jet engines for atmospheric flight. Pan American World Airways operates the Orion III, just as it operates the Aries Ib. In early stages of planning for the film, the spaceplane's engines on the back were designed to break away from the passenger section of the plane.[4][6][7]

    Wardair had free booze on their holiday destinations. We left Honolulu at 10 PM ... pilot said 'current temperature in Honolulu 84 degrees, current temperature in Edmonton, -40 degrees. I think that flight may have ran out of booze.[​IMG]
