Once over the Atlantic in the damage area. I figured it was probably the safest part of that plane. It is scheduled for retirement by UA this September but as far as I can tell, that it will be one of the earliest of the the 747-1xx retirements is just because of when its overhaul (D-Check) is due, not its history. -- -- Larry Stone --- firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.interserve.com/~lstone/ Belmont, CA, USA My opinions, not United's.
