This is actually going to be a cross-topic post: an MMM post because, well, it is Monday and I have been a bit late in picking up this bit of news – and also a CFR post because saying goodbye to SAS’ MD-80 planes undoubtedly is a flight related item.
I could say many things about the MD-80 – but the story I have picked is a quite personal one. Not too long ago – sometime in the last year or so, I was checking in online and was going to pick my seat (Why? See over here…). My son was for some reason looking over my shoulder and when the characteristic 2:3 configuration popped up, I offhandedly said “Oh, an MD-80…” To which I got an astonished, “Do you know the plane type just by seeing that???” Oh well … yes. I do. I’m like that…
But a fond farewell to the MD-80. If you can, I would recommend you to drop by SAS’ Facebook page – there’s a quite nice gallery of the commemoration of the last flight.
Which all has nothing to do with this morning’s list of music –
