Aircraft Passover

Not wanting to sit around the house today, I headed for McCarran International Airport for some aircraft photos and video. It’s been a while since I’ve done this. I was disappointed to see that the observation area along Sunset Road has been closed down tight.

It’s a location where you can get some lovely touchdown photos through the fence. After I captured a few photos with the Nikon and iPhone 12, I headed for a breakfast joint very nearby. While eating, I had a nice chat with a lovely lady who was just getting started in photography with a Nikon D700.

We exchanged information, we shall see if we end up going out for a shoot together. This set is all from the Nikon using the 50mm and 24/70mm lenses. I used the 50mm lens for the short video clip. The airliners are roughly 200 feet above me, so close and I love that!
