Flight: Poetry In Motion

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.

This Southwest Airlines aircraft was photographed on approach to our beautiful McCarran International Airport about a year or so ago.

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!

    • Wow, thank you!!! I miss the air traffic here, it’s so quiet now. There are more flights, but nothing like it used to be. I believe flying will go back to normal in time but it’s going to be a while. I may end up driving home to Michigan at some point to visit the family, it’s been over a year now. Totally sucks!

        • No, not yet. The family is still in full agreement that we are going to wait and see how things unfold. Our family Christmas is still postponed until June 2021 too. I live alone which makes this in some ways even more difficult.
