    The “Bro” will be missed. 9BC were some of the best Y seats in the system… mainline or Express!

    They’re not out of commercial service in the US though — Great Lakes still flies ’em

    One of my most memorable flights was an E120 trip from ONT to LAX, with gorgeous views of the entire LA metro area from around 6,000 feet.

    I used to love flying them SEA-PDX and back in the 90s. They would leave the flight deck door open, and, from the left side seat, you could look out of the side or the front. If you were seated towards the back there was a narrowing of your visual field out front, so in gusty conditions the runway would slide in and out of view, sometimes passing rapidly across the windshield at what looked like an alarming angle. Even better at night!

    Lots of memorable flights on these, for better or worse. Remember flying back from SJC to LAX via SBA after a job interview after switching to the e120 in the
    last row to get home a few hours early.

    Is that black spot in the sun a eclipse you happened to catch on the CLD-LAX video?

    Many many MANY flights on the E120 from CLD-LAX. Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be…

    Nice tribute. Wife and I took one last weekend trip to Vegas out of CLD the last weekend of service about a month ago. We miss having flight options out of CLD as California Pacific service has not materialized. CLD has gone from 3 carriers some years ago to none. Wish someone would serve San Diego north county…

    Via Air still flies them on scheduled routes between Beckley WV – Charlotte NC and St. Augustine FL.
