Airplane Pictures!
« on: August 27, 2014, 01:34:11 PM »
I figured you folks would enjoy a few pictures I took while sitting at the Anchorage airport for a few hours last week along with a handful from Seattle's Flight Museum. Several of them are rather fitting given the launch of the jet age, since there is no such thing as "too old to fly" in the real world ;-).


I first arrived to find a pair of 747-8F's fueling up on a tech stop. I found this to be relevant to my interests, so I figured I should camp out for a bit with the zoom lens.


After a bit, one of them had all it could eat at the buffet and decided to leave.


Of course, while it was leaving, an MD11 arrived to join the party.


While that was happening, I heard a roar and noticed a DC-93F blasting off.


And the MD11 heads over to say hi to the 747's before wandering off to the UPS ramp.


Then I saw something with propellers off in the distance so I snapped a picture really quick. A DC-3 has arrived!


Meanwhlie, back at the cargo plane committee, a 788 taxis past.


The 788 decides it doesn't belong with the cargo haulers, so off it goes.


Back on the runway, another DC-93F thunders off.


Then a 737F, Jurrassic edition chases it down the runway.


Hmm. Another propeller plane. This one seems to have more than two...


Ah yes. a DC-6. Also not too old to fly.


I found this interesting - a 748F and a DC6 in the same photo, both in motion.


Back to the cargo committee, seems that a conga line from South Korea has arrived.



Obligatory hey I had not seen a 767 yet today shot.


Obligatory hey I doubt I'll have a chance to see a 734 Combi again shot.


Moving on to Seattle, here's a few from the museum of flight - first up, we have the original 747 Prototype.


Now we have a Lockheed 1049G. The museum indicates that it was originally put in service as a lesser 1049 (a C or E, I do not recall) and was later upgraded to G with the addition of the wingtip fuel tanks. *cough feature request cough*


The first 737.


The first 727.



If this was a civilian plane, it would be a 707-320B


Here's the driver's seat of said 707-320B


Of course, they've got a Concorde there too.



They seem to keep the cabin looking quite nice.


I was hoping to get close enough to find the captain's hat in the expansion slot, however, darn the plexiglass.

Hi all,

just thought I'd share some pics of the A-Team alliance summit in Las Vegas back in March. (the ones that happen in Vegas and stay in Vegas won't appear on here )
We were fortunate enough to go behind the scenes of LAS airport and get a ramp tour.
On our tour we went on a B738 and B772, the latter is very rare to fly into LAS.
The B772 was there because the aircraft that was originally assigned on the DFW-LAS route was in maintenance.

attached are some pics of the B772 cockpit.

Those interested in Russian metal, here's one interesting trip and museum story from another site I manage: http://www.flightforum.fi/forum/index.php/topic,111798.0.html

(texts in Finnish but interesting pics, like the interior and cockpit of Tu-144 supersonic jet)

Today we have a near 48 year old DC-8-72CF that has been photographed at GSO. Of note, this plane is NOT too old to fly.
