Note: Onboard American Airlines Flight #80 after departing runway 18L at DFW for the last time on its final revenue service flight to ORD. What a beautiful morning it was, and what an incredible sendoff for such an iconic aircraft.
Note: #1 engine lighting off on a brisk winter evening. Republic ERJ-190 still in the Midwest colors picking up passengers for a Casino charter. From the research I have done, this is the last one in the fleet still in these colors. The rest...
Note: American Airlines second A319 delivered less than a month ago! No photos of this one yet in the database. From what I have heard, American Airlines has started flying their A319s to Longview for training check airmen for the new type in...
Note: El Al Departing runway 25R. The international terminal is busy with a British Airways 747, Emirates 777, Fijii 747, and a Lufthansa 747 taking a mid afternoon nap before departing in the early evening.
Note: Alaska 737 moments away from touch down on runway 19R. The pilots can be seen busy concentrating on safely putting something weighing easily over 100,000 pounds on a runway that is only 5,700' long. In the main passenger cabin a young girl...
Note: I had not spotted an original 737 classic with the old colors in months. I figured I would never see one again. I'm glad I was wrong. I saw this old battered bird come in for a landing on 30L at SJC. When I saw it I knew it would be the...
Note: Callsign "Navy One" Not a single marking on this bird besides the USN logo! Supposedly this aircraft is an operation for the CIA from other remarks on shots other photographers have taken of this bird at KDAL. Here at Longview this P3 did...
Note: Short final runway 13. Arriving from Wendover, Utah (KENV) with a full load of passengers coming back from the Casinos just across the border in Nevada. This old bird has spent some time over in Europe from 1992-2006 before coming to the...
Note: It's shots like these that make me go back for more! 1600 Pixels wide on this beast of a Maddog arriving from KUTA with a bunch of casino club members. Note the LeTourneau University Facilities blurred behind the exhaust.
Note: Here's a nice overview of East Texas Regional. Surprisingly an unheard of airport by most people around the US. It is home to the accredited flight school of LeTourneau University whose hangar and facilities can be seen at the top left of...
Note: On final for runway 30R with the last rays of light shining on downtown San Jose. A nice end to a very long trip! (AUS-ORD-SNA-SJC) Thanks Chasen for coming down to SNA to fly with me on the last segment. Shot taken from seat 15C.
Note: Santa Barbara is a nice little airport. This shot was taken from the balcony of the restaurant that has an overlook of the whole airport. Very good (and expensive) food, but the view was worth it! Note the Private 737-700 BBJ N888TY.
