Remarks: The beautiful view from room 715 at Atlanta's Renaissance Concourse hotel, shot at 28mm. It's hard to describe, or fathom, just how close this hotel, replete with nice-sized balconies, is to the action at ATL. A spotter's paradise, indeed.
Remarks: Nothin' beats a smoker!! What a great surprise to see not one, but two, non re-engined DC-8-63s from Arrow Air helping out with the UPS Christmas rush at the Louisville hub. Smoke pours out of all four engines as this classic freighter gets up in less than 6,000 feet, bound for Jacksonville, FL.
