I hear you. You guys are badass coming to that rock out of back door. Saw a saab making short approach into a hole in the sky with 10 kts on the tail. Landed in the middle and stopped shortly. No wonder they have tons of passengers stuck at the Grand.Awesome picture! Some days I miss going there. Most days I am happy no to go back.
Sierra Pacific?Pratt & Whitney JT8D-17. Designed to turn jet fuel into noise and thrust. Quieter than it's older brother the P&W J52 turbojet that powered the A-6 Intruder and EA-6 Prowler series, the JT8D still holds its own in the noise department.
Cool old school. Used to be a common sight. Now rare to see and like a fun classic to operate.
