N987AX (cn 47364) An early morning push for this Airborne Express DC-9, which for some reason, seems to be all the way down taxiway Juliet adjacent to the firehouse, not a place they would usually be under tow. (Circa 2000)

N752RA (cn 49780) This MD-87 has certainly been around...pictured on approach to LAX in 2000, it had previously flown with Oasis (as EC-FXX), Eagle Airways (as N780EG), then Reno Air as N752RA. American Airlines bought Reno Air in 1999, and operated their MD-87's in this modified scheme until selling them off after the 9/11 attacks. Since this photo, this aircraft has gone on to fly with Vanguard Airlines (as N132NJ), and currently flies with Aeromexico as XA-TWA.
