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: 'United in Pairs' .. N658UA makes some last minute corrections just prior to landing on runway 7R, flanked by a company jumbo on an extended final to runway 6L. LAX is always a treat when reverse pattern is in use, especially when the weather is decent..
Remarks: Glorious weather has befallen Charlotte, North Carolina over the 2006 Thanksgiving weekend. A freshly repainted US Airways 757 climbs taxiway Golf toward runway 36R, as our airport ops escort idles in the foreground.
