Description: The fun jet was actually introduced 2 years before there even was an airport. Where was it going to land or take off? It was the first set to introduce the standard luggage pieces that would later show up in the #996 Airport and it's successors when they finally came along.

When originally introduced in 1970, the plane did not have a gas hole on it's wing nor a tow hook near the front wheel. These features were added in 1972 due to the introduction of the #996 Airport to become compatable with the airport's fuel car.

After a lengthy run of a decade, #183 was discontinued in 1980 and the more sleek, tinted-window (and self-piloted) #182 took it's place beginning in 1981.
