Remarks: The "Bowling Shoe" rockets off runway 25R at McCarran on a clear spring afternoon. Even though this really wasn't that long ago, it's incredible how much the hobby/industry has changed since then.
Remarks: Northwest 57 Heavy from Amsterdam is on final for Runway 36R on a 100-plus degree Memphis August afternoon. Get your photos while you can - this flight will switch to an A330 at the end of October 2006. I did my part, catching the DC-10 on three consecutive afternoons.
