Remarks: This shot is very special to me because it was my last sight of the all too famous "Imperial Hill" where I spent collectively about 18 hours at that weekend shooting my heart out at all the wonderful LAX traffic. I cannot wait to return to that glorious spot. It was great meeting all the locals that weekend. Shot from seat 39A on DL 1488 (LAX-ATL). Canon 300D
Remarks: Spirit of Delta in repaint of the original delivery colors. This aircraft is being retired on March 3, 2006, and is on a 'farewell tour'. The first stop on the tour was February 21 at MCO. This photo shows the aircraft on a fly by over runway 17-R.
Remarks: My first sighting of a Midwest 170 operated by Republic. This is YX's answer to saving money while furloughing tons of YX mainline crews. This shot was taken just minutes after talking to two Midwest 717 F.O.'s who were losing their jobs soon. Good luck guys! Also, best of luck to all Midwest employees! I hope you all are around for years to continue providing the "Best Care in the Air."
Remarks: "Its gone! There's a new home run champion of all time, and its Henry Aaron!" That was the call as Hammerin Hank hit his 715th homer. But thanks goes out to Justin Idle for tracking this bird for me and giving me the heads up!
