I’ve always been fascinated with aircraft, anything that flies regardless of having wings or helicopter blades.
Over the years, I’ve found that these commercial jetliners have become my favorite aircraft, possibly aided by the fact that most of us have logged thousands of miles in these flying beer cans with what are pound for pound the most powerful engines built, strapped to the wings.
Since the damned virus took over the planet, I’ve seriously missed flying, and of course, seeing my family back home in Michigan twice a summer.
I have two favorite places I like to capture these beautiful machines from, one is directly under the approach path on the east end of one runway, the other is nearby where I can capture them broadside. I love the sights, sounds and even the smell of the spent Jet A fuel as it wafts over me, so fun!
