Remarks: A very special visitor which had arrived two days before from Easter Island, Chile and seen here heading to Jeffco, Denver on its last leg of the HIPPO 2009 mission. The route was 24,200 nautical miles and took 21 days to complete. [Canon EOS 40D + Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS USM]
Remarks: When I drove up and saw this on the ramp, I just thought it was another Biz Jet. Later I found out that this is indeed Tom Cruise's ride and he was on it along with wife Katie Holmes and daughter Suri Cruise to Rio de Janeiro, using SJO as its enroute fuel stop from Burbank. Great stuff! [Canon EOS 40D + Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS USM]
Remarks: I coudn't believe this until I saw it. An American arriving at a very unusual time giving me the chance to shoot the right side of the aircraft. Normally these flights arrive in the morning when the sun is at the other side.
