Concorde At JFK

I have only ever seen Concorde twice.  Once at Mirabel when I was either on my way to England or coming back to Montreal, I don’t quite remember.  Taking an international flight to/from Mirabel should give you a good indication of how long ago it was.

The second time I saw Concorde, was at New York’s JFK airport while on my way to Tokyo.

When I took this photo, I was not yet using digital; therefore, this was taken on 35mm film.  I scanned the negative with my camera to get it into a digital format.

Concorde was always an awesome sight to see.  If you’re wondering, compared to regular commercial airliners, Concorde was not very big.

One Type Down, Many More To Go

I love flying.  I’m an admitted aviation geek.  I’m plane crazy.

When I do get the chance to fly, I always make it a point to see if I can possibly fly a type of aircraft that I have never flown on before.

I have flown on Boeings, Airbuses, Lockheeds, Cessnas, British Aircraft Corporation aircraft, Embraers, and Bombardiers.

In regards to Boeing, I had yet to fly aboard a 737; therefore, when I had a chance to fly aboard one on a recent trip, I was quite pleased.

I always ask for a window seat, of course.

These photos were taken with my LG G5.

Turkish Airlines

I caught this Turkish Airlines Airbus A330-303 coming over my house this afternoon.

The wind was blowing something fierce from left to right (roughly north to south) across my yard, so I could just imagine the cross wind going across 6-24R and 6-24L.  Because of this wind, I had a parade of aircraft come over my house to land on 10-28.

Stormy Evening

It was a pretty stormy evening over the airport today, so many flights were told to land on runway 10-28, rather then landing on runways 6 or 24.

That meant some air traffic over my backyard.

I could of backed off the ISO a bit, but the files still came about pretty clean considering.
