    Wow what a year. Adria's bankruptcy was certainly popular!

    The Adria photo is legendary and kind of sad at the same time in this context. Love the JAT photo too. What a classic :)

  3. Anonymous12:16

    It is fascinating mix of top 3 trip reports: slot keeper flight to LHR, mind braking report of Asia and unbreakable JAT's 737 still flying with style. Great. Bravooooo :)
