Today, was a historic day at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. It saw that arrival of the first intercontinental non-stop flight by a Boeing 787 into Austin. It was British Airways BA-191 from London Heathrow into Austin. I was there to take some pictures of the plane (of course) and to commemorate the flight. I read […]
So, I’ve been away for a while, basically just taking a break from everything website related just because I felt like it. Interestingly, not much changed in terms of traffic to the site. Anyway, here I am again. This item is a few days old, but it’s still cool. British Airways, aka BA, installed these […]
I’m not too psyched about this merger. I read an article over on the Huffington Post about how this merger was a great thing, specially for consumers.

This is crazy video footage of the collision between an Air France A380 with a Delta Connection CRJ at JFK Airport in New York. I couldn’t figure out how something like this could have happened. I mean, I know the A380 is a huge plane, and maybe the pilot didn’t see the smaller CRJ and […]
This is some really cool plane to plane video shot from one airliner showing an Air France Boeing 777 flying side by side. My bet, is that they were transatlantic somewhere, but I could be wrong about that.
