My First Boeing 747-800 or really Second

  • June 17, 2012

Today at O'Hare International Airport I had a chance to see my first CargoLux Boeing 747-800 landing on runway 28. This is my first chance of seeing a 747-800 in flight, but not the first time seeing one. I did get to see one parked at Boeing Airfield in Seattle, WA a few years back. Just nice to see one flying this time.

Another bad news story for Aircraft photographers

  • May 14, 2012

Check out this news story This is my response to it: I have been approached while doing photography at airports. Some who don't care about me being there, and some who don't want you there at all, and thinking there is a law about taking pictures of aircraft. Safest thing to do is make sure your in a public area like a PUBLIC street, sidewalk, or if your lucky on your own property like me who lives next to an airport. Keep this in mind IT IS NOT UNLAWFUL TO TAKE PICTURES OF AIRPLANES!!!
