Airliners are just an incredible piece of machinery. The sound of those turbines on take off is something that still gives me goose bumps to this day. Air travel is something that most of us take for granted. Airliners however, are probably the most complex piece of machinery we use on a "regular" basis. I still remember the excitement I felt as a kid when my parents took me to the airport to watch these big birds take off and land at our local airport. It is just too bad that traveling by air is such a pain these days. :-(
