Man Recreates 747 in his Garage

A man in Redondo Beach, California loves the luxury of flying first class so much, he doesn't need to travel any further than his own Redondo Beach garage to do it.  Anothony Toth has built a full-scale replica of a first-class cabin from a Pan Am World Airways 747.  Toth has taken hs hobby so seriously that he has a timetable listing the flight schedule from Los Angeles that Pan Am would have used in the 1970s.

Visitors then can go into the cabin and see what a Pan Am aircraft from the 1960s and '70s looks like.

Toth is an aircraft enthusiast, and a global sales director for United Airlines.  It has been a labor of love for Toth who has worked on his airplane cabin for about 20 years and has spent some $50,000 on parts and airline memorabilia.  He serves guests a complimentary beverages, and they eat peanuts from a Pan Am labeled package.

There is no word on whether he charges guests if they bring an extra bag along, hires actors to be rude flight attendants, or provides a crying baby in the seat next to you.

    Mismatch Saturday

    Just about every Top 25 team is in action this Saturday, the problem is there are only two games that involve both teams being ranked.

    Ohio St. at Penn St.  -  Critical Big 10 battle.  Look for a low scoring game that might be decided in the trenches.

    LSU at Alabama  -  Many people looking forward to this game.  Ramifications for many other teams.  Another low scoring contest, with Alabama's "D" and LSU Coach Les Miles playcalling being the deciding factor.

    On the less interesting side #2 Texas is playing UCF,TCU is playing San Diego St. and Florida and Vandy.


    More Fallout from the Delta / Northwest Merger...Literally

    A part of the engine tail cone popped off a Delta AirLines jet shortly after takeoff from New York's Kennedy Airport. It plummeted thousands of feet into a Long Island neighborhood before landing harmlessly in someone's backyard.  The passengers weren't in any more danger than they normally are on a Delta / Northwest Flight. 

    The aircraft was bound for Tokyo and neither the pilots or anyone onboard noticed the part was missing until it landed in Japan.  The pilots swear they were not on their laptops.

    The 20 lb part was found the next morning and the police were called to investigate.
