Rare airplane spotting

I don't have any pics but I often see some World Airways MD-11s in Tampa, Florida. They do their maintenance there. Among the 15 they have in operation are the 2nd to last ever built and the majority of the handful of MD-11s still in passenger configuration. If I ever get a hold of a decent camera, I'll work on that.

I also frequently see some ancient 737s flying casino charters out of Atlantic City, NJ. I researched the tail numbers and found that they are all as much as 25 years old and have been all over the world.

One of the oldest aircraft flying in regular pax service in the world (in a first world country at least). Checking in at about 36 years old. Taken from N960DL at KATL this morning.

I rode on the aircraft pictured in October of last year. Great plane on the interior as well. Long live the Diesel 9!!!

Is this considered rare? 8)

Perhaps not 'rare', but a Austrian A320 in retro livery I flew a few weeks ago from Vienna to Larnaca. I suppose a unique livery makes it rare..  :laugh:

Well, you haven't yet been on a VIA TU154B LOL. Used to fly into DUS until not long ago..... they are as dirty as a DC-9 during takeoff, while just starting the engines ;D

Luckily I haven't yet been to Bulgaria :P

does a Short 360 count as rare? Just got a couple of shots of it at KSFO 20 minutes ago but can't upload till I get to my PC.
