Remarks: Nice angle from the west side of SDF on a MD-11 take off rwy17R. Sorry for the cloudy overcast day, but I rarely get down here to Louisville. Nice to see the local guys, Robert, Jim, Nick, Kenny, (airport police were nice), and about 4 other guys & gals. At this time there were about 14 747's on the ground for the Christmas rush. You can see a few in the background with some MD-11's.
