After Tuesday’s post, I still have a bad case of regional jets on my brain. So today’s photo? Surprise! It’s a regional jet! Back in May 2010, I was on my way home from a speaking engagement at the Regional Airline Association’s annual convention in Milwaukee. I stopped off at Chicago O’Hare, where American Eagle was introducing its new first class seat in its 70-seat CRJs. The carrier also unveiled a tasting of the new meal service in said seats. As I was going home, I took this shot of the Bombardier CRJ700 that was taking me home. Enjoy!
Yesterday, I flew into Milwaukee’s General Mitchell Airport on my way to Oshkosh, Wisc., for this year’s EAA AirVenture air show — the world’s largest. I thought it was only fitting to make today’s picture a shot from this, one of my favorite airports (another post for another day).
Milwaukee used to be the main hub and headquarters of Midwest Airlines, which used to have the tag line “The Best Care In The Air.” Back when I flew it in 1994, it had an all-business class layout that served great food and wine, along with great chocolate chip cookies baked onboard.
Below is a shot of a Midwest Airlines Embraer E170 I took last May on a trip to MKE to speak at the Regional Airline Association convention. And as a bonus, I took a (bad) shot of the Farmer’s Insurance zeppelin (thanks, Jim Way) on my iPhone yesterday as I arrived in Oshkosh. Enjoy!
