Hey, guys, I found out what the "issue' was. A person complained that the "Subject' of this pic (the Dreamliner) was "blocked' from view. Lololol Apparently, the person (I was told the FA member's ID but I promised not to reveal it) is OK with pictures of dogs in a seat and of little white specks in a big blue sky but was not happy with a photo of a jet at an airport gate. But as the FA rep assured me, this pic shows a standard airport scene; a scene that occurs thousands of times daily at airports around the world, and is fully compliant with posting standards. But I do want to say a fast Thanx to the "person' who complained. Although I could not care less what you think of my photos because you are too frightened to ID yourself publicly to everyone here (probably because people could then closely examine your feeble attempts at photography), I am thrilled to know you spend some minutes of your day examining my new posts closely. Every time you do, it increases the VIEW COUNT of my pic ... and it's obvious you know absolutely zilch about the importance of VIEW COUNT here on FA or you most assuredly wouldn't be adding even one more to mine. Ignorance is bliss ... and yours is mine. (Huge grin & lololol)

Hi, de17walt >>>> (Grin) You're 'dating' yourself when you recall flying on a Mohawk (it's OK; I'm constantly "dating' myself too whenever I post some old Kodak 127 or 620 film photos I snapped at BUF back in the 60s ... lol). I loved flying on Mohawk as a teen. But then I enlisted in Nov '68 and my first assignment was overseas and by the time I came back to Buffalo on leave Mohawk was kaput -- Allegheny had absorbed Mohawk in a hostile acquisition.
In regards to the Mohawk jet you flew on, Mohawk never flew DC-8s or DC-10s or any equipment that large, but they DID fly BAC-111s. In fact, Mohawk was the stateside launch customer for British Aircraft Corporation's 111s. Mohawk also began flying FH-227s and there was a plan in the works for them to buy 727s but the employee strike delayed the progression of that purchase and when the strike dragged on the final chapters of Mohawk's existence were written.
I'm not 100% certain, but I think I uploaded a photo of a Mohawk BAC-111 into my folder a few years back. I've got several B & Ws of them (including great closeup pics of the one that lost its nose gear as it was rolling along a Syracuse runway). I used to post my old pics from back in the 50s and 60s every so often here in the FA gallery until I received a message from a guy in FA saying that FA prefers to have just pics of present day aircraft and present day airlines. So I stopped posting any more oldies pics.
Anyway, I'm pleased you enjoyed this photo. It isn't one I took. I won't go into the story behind how I ended up posting this, but please be assured that a great guy named Larry Myers would have been thrilled to know you enjoyed this photo. If it wasn't for Larry, this photo would have been buried in a trash dump. (Thumbs up) (gcs)

This brings back memories when I flew in one just before Mohawk went out of business, that plane was a DC 8 or 10 not sure which one. The old Oneida County Airport has been closed for many years, now local traffic flies into the old Griffis Airforce base now operated by the county of Oneida. I would love to see a major airline move there (Griffis) would save a trip to Syracuse or Albany for me.

Photo taken on 10-12-2022. Its flying days are over. The aircraft is currently getting its interior re-done and will be on permanent display at Palm Springs Air Museum. It was Walt Disney's personal airplane.

The biggest blimp in the air, but it does not work really - but unfortunately.
Another attempt to fly with airships lighter than air.

Nice shot, John! The P-40 was/is a great aircraft! And for anyone who cares, here is info from Wikipedia regarding N numbers:

An older aircraft (registered before 31 December 1948) may have a second letter in its identifier, identifying the category of aircraft. This additional letter is not actually part of the aircraft identification (e.g. NC12345 is the same registration as N12345). Aircraft category letters have not been included on any registration numbers issued since 1 January 1949, but they still appear on antique aircraft for authenticity purposes. The categories were:

C = airline, commercial and private
G = glider
L = limited
R = restricted (such as cropdusters and racing aircraft)[8]
S = state
X = experimental

Serge, when a pilot has a dumb squawk, the mechanics sometimes say, "the Nut Behind the Wheel is Loose"
In this case, there are two pilots, hence Toulouse Nuts behind the wheel. :)

however, the r-2600 was a radial whereas the Allison was an inline allowing the narrow nose so famous with the P-40 and P-51. The P-36 was always a radial, but just under performed. It wasn't until the Rolls Royce Merlan that the two-stage supercharger was used which allowed a ceiling of 40,000 and 400+ mph. The P47 & F6F used the R-2800 radial
