This is an old shot of an American Airlines MD-80 from a previous outing to the ABIA flight path. This shot, I took from the cemetery that is under the flight path to 17R. This was taken with my old Nikon 3000, and I wasn’t still quite sure what exposure metering to use. I wish […]
I took this shot through a window, duh, at DIA the last time I went through there. I like how the livery looks on this American Airlines Boeing 757. I don’t think that the new livery would look nearly as good on this plane. What do you think?
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. The thing is, the HP article didn’t actually mention a single positive and concrete thing for consumers. Journalists and media people want to sell you the line that […]
I just hadn’t said anything about the new livery, so here’s this video. I should say, that the new livery is growing on me. It looked weird at first, because I’ve practically grown up with the bare metal color scheme, but I’m starting to like this new livery. What I like the most about American […]
I really like the perspective of this shot. I don’t know if they’ll need to be de-iced or not before takeoff, but I’m pretty sure that the pilot will make the right call. I love that they were doing a walk around when they took this photo. Chicago MD-80, a photo by Fly For Fun […]
While at the north office, as I used to call it, I captured this beauty flying overhead. They had not yet lowered the landing gear. On a different day, while going over the same spot, they already had the landing gear down. I’ll post the wheels down picture another day. American is replacing a lot […]
N194AA B757 DFW, a photo by rafaelmarquez on Flickr. Via Flickr: Part of a series from a plane spotting trip to Founder’s Plaza at DFW Airport. I caught N194AA on short final. It was interesting to see how the heavies were handling the headwinds with more grace than the lighter planes were.
This airplane, N7519A MD-82, was delivered brand new to American Airlines back in May 1990. It is seen here at Sacramento International Airport being pushed back for a flight to DFW.
