    I just like this photo and that plane, hmmmmmm. Not sure i would climb aboard. Note what the casino's looked like back in 1976. Some no longer with us and the Flamingo, just a little different.

    Great photo! What is the big hotel behind MGM Grand? I would guess the Sands, but really have no idea.

    Thanks to the "76" gas station sign, bottom centerish, I actually found out that the company was formed in the 30s and the "76" was about 1776, not 1976. As a bicentennial baby, I believe that all of it has to with me and the year I was born. ;)

    Beautiful pic. I would like it for my house too.

    Yeah, gotta like the old days. The hotel "behind" MGM is mgm I believe, today what is bally's of course. And I was wrong, what I though was flamingo, isn't. That's the area where Cromwell and the saloon I can't recall name of (ya know the place with 21 yrs left on lease)

    And hope no one missed the jockey club standing tall....

    My niece was born July 4 1976. She's my sister's little fire cracker. Well at least that is what the birth announcement said.
