Some of us here are old enough to remember when Eastern wasn't just another recycled former great airline name to be tossed around in the shallow, murky and stagnant end of the Part 121 Supplemental pond...

Honestly, I wish them the best of luck (hey, a "what if" bunch from Florida stuck it out, survived 9-11 and got bought by SWA so good things can happen!) but I really wish they would be more creative and come up with their own name and let the honored dead rest in peace!

Ya know, if I recall correctly I saw a 67 in Eastern colors in Miami back January or or perhaps in the early spring so they have a machine or two out there somewhere...

I'm not sure what all happened but checklists were run and the plane landed fine-given the nature of airline management anytime there is an issue I hope for the crew to be okay. I haven't seen anything on the news so it couldn't have been too interesting but the crew I was with had to wait for a bit, hence the "Christmas Bonus"...
