Note: The family and I were vacationing at Great Wolf Lodge in Bloomington and I brought my camera just in case the weather was nice and I could get away for an hour on the garage at MSP. I'd never captured a Delta A220 before so I was excited...
Note: Dedicated to my late friend and former JP photographer, Ozell Stephen's Jr., who passed away from COVID in 2021. As a lover of special paint jobs and a person of color himself, he would have loved capturing N492AS at MSP this morning. RIP,...
Note: Thanks to the LONGINESS FEI World Cup Jumping Final Omaha 2017, this special visitor brought 50 horses to Nebraska. Shame the weather wasn't better but I wasn't going to miss the opportunity to see a Qatar 777 in Omaha!
Note: My first photo of a Delta A330! Landing on Runway 9R after operating an upguaged flight from MIA. A few days earlier, this plane helped transport some of the stranded Carnival Triumph passengers from New Orleans to Houston.
Note: Voted by all in attendance the "money shot of the trip." What a beautiful display of color, aerodynamics, and vortices. Climbing out from 12R in the early morning light. As Adam Wright said, "Fedex always pleases," and they sure do. Canon...
Note: NW 453 bound for OMA rockets out of MSP from 12R with a great view of the Lindbergh terminal below. This was a great ending to an overall perfect day, albeit delayed due to an autopilot repair. This shot goes out to Adam Wright and Chris...
Note: The new kid in rolls down runway 30L for a departure to MDW. This was my first time being in MSP since WN started service and I just think it looks weird to see them at that airport. I'm sure DL/NW doesn't like their being there.
Note: The bird that brought me to MSP on flight 290 from OMA just an hour earlier now rolls down 30L on her way to ORD with the new competition in town making its way to 30L for a departure to the same city's sister airport. Thanks for the great...
Note: A beautiful VS 744 bringing in another boatload of Brits over from the UK for their "holidays" in Florida. This was my first time seeing VS new colors in person and I was quite impressed! I miss seeing these things daily as I once did when...
