To think that the most known Embraer Legacy is N600XL... damn.

Dead over the Amazon: The mid-air collision between Gol Transportes Aéreos Flight 1907 and the Embraer Legacy 600 anon is referring to, leading to the loss of the Boeing 737-800 with all 154 passengers and crew. 


I witnessed history today. Eastern Airlines was one checkride from getting their new Part 121 Carrier Certificate when I took these photos. About half an hour later the bird, a 737-800 officially titled “Spirit of Captain Eddie Rickenbacker”, lifted into the Tallahassee skies and the company is on its way to resurrection and new life. I felt like I was looking at a beautiful piece of lost history, and I’m still not completely sure I really saw it.

Watch on

Excellent POV of a very snowy start, pushback, taxi, and takeoff as seen from the cockpit of a Boeing 737-800. Just listen to that ATIS …
