Waiting on Customs
The Hobbit Livery
Air New Zealand, the Airline of Middle-Earth.
Always good to see a 727, even if it's in the wrong paint scheme.
Arriving at LAX as the sun sets.
Nice Paint A380
British Airways, the only A380 that looks ok.
Youngest 727 Crew
An all Western Michigan University Boeing 727 crew, all in their 20's.
Sunset at 36,000 ft
Hauling freight, usually the only thing out the window is the darkness of night. Occasionally you get to see something cool, like this sunset, probably somewhere over Mexico.

20 Degrees Up
Pitch to maintain V2+10 up to 20 degrees nose up, then accept a higher airpseed..in a Super 27 it's almost always fast with 20 degrees nose up.
Lit up Rocks
A Kalitta DC9 waiting for freight as the sun sets lighting up the Zapalinamé Mountains in Saltillo, Mexico
The second to last 727 ever built.
New 727 Delivery
When you operate a fleet of 727's, getting a new plane doesn’t mean the plane will actually be...new. Luckily this bird's previous owner also uses an all white paint scheme, so all they had to do was paint over the old logos and flags - I call this scheme “dirty white with white”.
