Remarks: New York, New York and the MGM wave goodbye as this one departs back to Atlanta. Ryan won't be operating the A320 for Airtran for much longer, as soon they will be taking delivery of their own brand-new 737-700s.
Remarks: McCarran Airport has been abuzz the last week with military movements, as Red Flag (the bi-annual war games at Nellis AFB) is underway. This particular refueller, from Grissom AFB, is giving the folks at the MGM Grand a view as she departs runway 1L. This photo is dedicated to Elliot Epstein, who gave me a heads up on Saturday morning for all of the additional military traffic at LAS.
