Remarks: Sunrise Mountain, and indeed much of Las Vegas, look on as 'Barbarella' departs Sin City back to London. Special thanks are due to this wonderful Virgin flight crew for arranging the 19L departure required for this photo, and especially to First Officer Shergold for his call from the cockpit just before takeoff to advise me on the departing runway. Hope you guys are enjoying a great flight over the North Atlantic right now!
Remarks: One of the most beautiful architectural masterpieces in the world, the Kansai International Terminal is seen sadly desolate at just about noon on a Monday. High landing fees and lack of demand for flights to this modern airport have caused airline traffic to suffer heavily here. Hopefully that will turn around in the future!
Remarks: A panoramic overview of the Observation Tower at Osaka's Kansai Airport. This seems to be a very popular hangout for locals and foreigners alike, as evidenced by the newly introduced shuttle service from the main terminal.
Remarks: Is any airliner flying more beautiful than the Boeing 727? A late-evening Champion departure blasts off runway 25R toward the setting sun as night falls on Las Vegas! This shot dedicated to fellow JP.net'er Adam Wright!
