Remarks: Just meters from the southern perimeter fence at SJO, La Candela is a two-story bar & grill that gives a panoramic overview of the runway and terminal at Juan Santamaria Int'l. It's a typical busy Saturday afternoon at this Central American hub as we prepare to grab a bite to eat.
Remarks: The "Bowling Shoe" rockets off runway 25R at McCarran on a clear spring afternoon. Even though this really wasn't that long ago, it's incredible how much the hobby/industry has changed since then.
Remarks: A panoramic overview of BA's amazing Terminal 5 (and the alley in between the main terminal and satellite B) at London Heathrow as seen from the outstanding indoor balcony at the British Airways Concorde Room club.
Remarks: So many people! With six cruise ships on the island, quite a few of their passengers have come to check out famous Maho Beach. Sadly, over the course of a week, crowds like this were the "norm" on 4-5 days. Looks like my days of visiting SXM during peak season are over!
Remarks:A New Era. For the first time, the new Terminal 3 at McCarran Airport is open to the public. At a cost of $1.6 Billion, this modern new facility features a total of 14 new gates (7 domestic, 7 international) and over 1.9 million square feet of space. When T3 officially opens for business on June 27, 2012, it will be the home of all foreign flag carriers, as well as Alaska Airlines, Frontier, jetBlue, Sun Country, Virgin America, Hawaiian Airlines and United.
Remarks:Eastbound and down aboard one of the last flying passenger Boeing 727s in the USA. Several months after this LAS-OKC flight, Champion ceased all operations, marking the end of an era in jet travel. We miss you, mighty three-holer!
Remarks: Looking a far cry from what one would expect to see upon entering the L1 door on a Boeing 737, this bird is undergoing a full interior refurbish at Delta's Technical Operations Center in Atlanta.
Remarks: Undoubtedly one of the most picturesque airports in the world, Princess Juliana Airport is seen on a crisp, clear winter's day in the Caribbean. This photo was taken around 3:15pm on a Monday (the airport's slowest day), so the only aircraft on the apron are an American 757-200 (MIA), jetBlue E190 (SJU), and Air France's daily A340-300 from Paris.
