Head on with a Delta Airlines MD90-30 Mad Dog taxiing to the runway at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. This is a head on shot of N950DN as it made its way to the runway runup area for takeoff. This is probably one of my favorite shots from the observation area of the airport.
This nice looking Cessna 172 N122VK starts it’s takeoff roll with Arizona One in the background at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. I believe this little Cessna belongs to a flight school or is rented out by a flight school. It’s based out of San Marcos, which is about 30 miles south of ABIA. […]
This is an old photo of a Delta Airlines MD-90 back when they were Mad Dogging it at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. This is an MD-90-30 with the registration number N950DN. The plane is currently (September 2020) in storage in Birmingham with no plans for it to come back in service with Delta. It’s weird, […]
Southwest Airlines Boeing B737-700 about to touchdown at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. If memory serves me right, I took this shot from the parking of the Mexican restaurant that is next to the shell station just off the airport grounds. I was about to get in my car and drive back to the city […]

Back in 2019, bombardier sold the CRJ to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries for about $550 million. That price also seems like a bargain for what Bombardier calls the most […]
Another day another Citation Jet coming in to Austin Bergstrom International Airport. There are a lot of these litle jets, and a lot of them fly in to ABIA. If memory serves me right, this one belongs to the King Ranch, but I could have it mixed up with a different Citation Jet.
Some V-Tail Bonanza action at Austin Bergstrom. This plane has the nickname “Doctor Killer.” Apparently, the name was given to the plan because the wealthy people that bought the plane were over confident in their abilities and the plane tended to get away from them. In retrospect, it turns out […]
I love this photo of this Citation jet sharking overhead on its way to land at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. I love that the livery of the plane wraps around the underside of the fuselage and looks almost like a shark swimming overhead. I believe this to be a Citation II jet. […]
