Here are a few more Nikon photos from yesterday on the approach path to runway 25L at the east end of the airport. Most of my flights returning home from Michigan have landed on the runway which is 10,526 feet long, and 150 feet wide. The photo of the airport sign is an iPhone 12 photo captured while stopped for traffic.
This iPhone video was recorded on the way home to Vegas from Michigan the other day. The aircraft I was in has flight information and a movie screen on the back of each seat. According to the screen, the aircraft was traveling at just over 600 miles per hour. There are no speed limits up there, too bad, police!
That works out to just under four hours to travel from Michigan to Nevada. So amazing isn’t it? Imagine being an American pioneer in the 1800s taking months to travel from the midwest to the west coast!
