I never had the privilege of flying the DC9 (not enough seniority at the time in my company). Closest I got was the Fokker F28. But it has always impressed me that, prior to the fifteen foot fuselage stretch into the dash 30, the early Nines achieved good airfield performance without leading edge slats...this is a beautiful shot of a real classic!

I wonder who gets the job of tethering all 4 of those massive eight bladed props, to bed her down for the night when they are away from home base? It can be tricky to do, even with the free turbine twin PT6A powered Kingair...

Nice shot of the classic C340 cockpit too! Updated with the vertically mounted standby magnetic compass. Beautiful...

One of my favorite every-so-often visitors to RDU! Looking good for a 50-year-old. Originally Continental.

Chris, you need to get rid of the date stamp, center the aircraft and fix the colors/exposure etc.

The probe fooled me too. It's right where you would expect to see the tail, but it's not. Thanks for clearing that up.

Oh Dear, Thank you Baldwin. You just served the purpose of a good cause this page was created. While those couple of others here made derogatory comments despite having zero knowledge about what is the issue that is being brought into focus,you made that big difference. I do not want to write the details of actions on these criminals, it's been going on for so long they must be dealt with severe legal punishment besides loosing pilot credentials and loosing their business must go to jail. I have enough evidence that they are not on their own, they are supported by some agency which I am still trying to find out. Any inputs like yours, any ideas and pertinent information will be greatly appreciated, that is exactly why I sought out place like Flghtaware, it helps me to track them from their take off till they land, thanks to Flightaware and other sites that provide these information!!.

T/O flaps, amount determined by aircraft weight, runway length, airport density altitude. Can actually be 0 flaps but with slats. Slats are usually the first part of any flaps extension.

That's right Jerome, the only reason we see Delta 757's at YYZ anymore is for sports charters.

I've watched some YouTube videos of Spotter day at Guarulhos, fantastic spot and very close to the action! Short lens only here! Great shot Marcio!

Written on 2017-05-26 by John Gotch

I've been impressed with C130s ever since seeing one in an air show that was outfitted with rockets on both sides, showing how they were outfitted during the Viet Nam war in order to be able to take off on short runways. They fired those rockets partway down runway, and was that ever loud. Unbelievable how that plane shot up into the air at that point.

Written on 2017-05-26 by Linda Nitzschke

Great shot, for several reasons.

Still another overcast day. I'll admit that earlier this year I was enjoying the opportunities to snap some inclement WX pics, but now I'm ready for the bright blue skies of summer.

Modular Airborne FireFighting System
The Modular Airborne FireFighting System or MAFFS is a self-contained unit used for aerial firefighting that can be loaded onto a C-130 Hercules, a military cargo transport, which then allows the aircraft to be used as an air tanker against wildfires.[1] This allows the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to use military aircraft from the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve to serve as an emergency backup resource to the civilian air tanker fleet.[1][2]

Sorry about that; should have typed 757 instead of 575.

Written on 2017-05-26 by Jerome Kendrick

Looking at the activity log below, I would venture to say this is the 575 that is used to carry the Seattle Mariners Baseball Club to its away games. Their last stop before returning home was with the Toronto Blue Jays, they just finished a four game series with the Washington Nationals and are now (Friday, May 26) are in Boston for a three game series with the Red Sox.

An odd picture... are the flaps deployed ?? Slats look down. Hmmmm, didn't think this was in the "rule book".

I had some time before our flight left coming home from our last trip and decided to take some shots of all the activity at ORD. Nothing spectacular, but not too bad. I have a few more I'll post soon.

I thought that was a container ship company. not an airline.

By any chance, they didn't copy the BOEING 737 did they.
