Double Action At Old KLGA

Postby EAL0739 » Sun Jun 09, 2019 10:38 am

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

When I was little kid, I used Kodakache kiddie camera to take photos of two DC-10s finishing their pushbacks AT SAME TIME (yeah it was awesome to see those two DC-10s being pushbacked at same time) from KLGA (LGA) LaGuardia Airport gates to get ready for taxi to runway. One was going to Dallas. The other was going to somewhere that I do not remember but I think it was to Chicago.

The weird part is that they actually flew the from LaGuardia! That’s only 7000’ of pavement. Must have been really weight limited!

David,

Yep DC-10-10s could handle KLGA runways. Not not not DC-10-30s.

DC-10-10s, L1011s, A300s, and 767s (Delta) had no problem handling KLGA runways.

The DC10 has the highest landing speeds of any aircraft. High weight plus small wing. I've had talks in the jumpseat with NWA DC10 pilots. They strive accuracy. You plant it in the touchdown zone, exactly on speed. That's why it has shock absorbers the size of elm trees. When those big birds landed in LGA, I guarantee there wasn't any floating. Plant it, reverse and brakes. I wonder if we have any wide-body flights to LaGuardia at HAG?

David,

Good thing your virtual airline HAG has rules or policies allowing aircraft substitution of same airline only if it actually happened in real life for routes. For instance, your PSA route from KSFO to KSAN uses 727s but according to PSA pilots, PSA also used L1011s for this route in real life too so your VA's rules would allow substitutions from 727 to L1011 for that PSA route.

National Airline used DC-10-10s for KGA to KMIA routes and back. American Airlines used DC-10-10s for LGA to KMIA, KORD, and KDFW routes and back. Delta used 767s for KLGA to KATL routes and back. Eastern used L1011s and A300s for many routes to different cities out of KLGA and back. Heck Eastern even used wide body A300s for short hop routes to KBOS and back!!! When I was little kid I used Eastern L1011s for flights from KLGA to Orlando (yeahh Disneyland) and Bermuda and back. When Eastern was gone, I used Delta 727s for Bermuda and Bahamas routes out of KLGA and back.
