Note: Many of us Eclipse Chasers were caught by thunderstorms on the way back north and forced to land at this small airfield in Southern Illinois, here is the end of that long line of showers marked by a rainbow.
Note: Dreamliner and the Queen. The 787-9 (N26967) arrived as UAL876 from Tokyo Narita 1hr early and is being towed away after unloading to make room at the international gates. The opposite for the 747-400, which came in as UAL858, departed...
