Remarks: AA222 from LAX less than a minute from touching down on Logan's runway 27. This is one of my very favorite type / livery combinations and it's enhanced even more by the light of the setting sun.
Remarks: LH855 from HEL to FRA on "Laupheim", seat 22F. Classic early morning approach towards FRA from the east but with two twists! First, we're closer to the city due to the location of the new runway (25R). Second, it's not every day you see the famous Frankfurt skyline peeking through low fog. Laupheim had celebrated the 20th anniversary of its first flight less than a month before.
Remarks: The daily Alitalia A332 from FCO is about to touch down on Logan's runway 27 shortly after the sun set on a beautifully clear November evening. It was a real treat that it arrived when the light was just perfect.
Remarks: Technik Museum Sinsheim. The unmistakable silhouette of the museum's Concorde with the sun setting behind it. I was on my way to the train station when I turned around for one last look... and immediately got my camera out for a few more shots.
Remarks: HA168 from HNL to KOA on "Oma'o", seat 22A. Finally, my first ride on a B717! And what better seat to ask for! We've just taken off from HNL's runway 8R and are currently over Sand Island which lies in the entrance of Honolulu Harbor. On the shot you can see the US Coast Guard station on the island, as well as part of downtown Honolulu.
Remarks: LH863 from OSL to FRA on "Schönefeld", seat 19F. I spend a fair amount of time hanging around at airports and sitting on airplane seats. It can get very tedious, soul-draining even. But, once in a while, a view like this one makes it all worthwhile. Yes, the sunset was truly spectacular that evening. Enjoy.
Remarks: This small airfield is located in central New Hampshire in the area close to lake Winnipesaukee. A local company runs "leaf peeping" flights from here during foliage season. The folks at the airport were super nice and welcoming and let us walk around a little to snap some shots of the runway.
Remarks: verview of Boston's Logan airport. An hour earlier the temperature at Logan matched the all-time record (set in 1926) of 103F/39.5C. Note the IB A343 (IB6165 from MAD) that just landed on 22L and the WN B73G (N278WN, WN1679 to STL) that is about to take off from 22R. Also note the cranes at the end of 33L. That runway was closed at the time as they were building a new emergency threshold. Shot taken from AS B738 N506AS from SEA to BOS as AS12.
Remarks: Technik Musem Speyer. The shot demonstrates how high and at what angle the museum's B742 is resting. Visitors are allowed full access to the plane, including the platform underneath it, its cabin, cargo hold, etc. It is even possible to walk on the port wing, hence the high fence that has been installed on it. But be warned: this is not an activity for the faint of heart on a windy day.
