Remarks: El Al Departing runway 25R. The international terminal is busy with a British Airways 747, Emirates 777, Fijii 747, and a Lufthansa 747 taking a mid afternoon nap before departing in the early evening.
Remarks: Alaska 737 moments away from touch down on runway 19R. The pilots can be seen busy concentrating on safely putting something weighing easily over 100,000 pounds on a runway that is only 5,700' long. In the main passenger cabin a young girl admires the city below, and other passengers ignore the amazing things to be seen out the window.
Remarks: I had not spotted an original 737 classic with the old colors in months. I figured I would never see one again. I'm glad I was wrong. I saw this old battered bird come in for a landing on 30L at SJC. When I saw it I knew it would be the last time I saw the original colors on the 737 classic. One of very few 737 Classic airframes left in this paint scheme at the time of the photo. You can see the immense amount of patchwork, and the patched eye brow windows. Still in service since 1989. The end of an era for Southwest Airlines. I will never forget what they were like when I was younger.
Remarks: Callsign "Navy One" Not a single marking on this bird besides the USN logo! Supposedly this aircraft is an operation for the CIA from other remarks on shots other photographers have taken of this bird at KDAL. Here at Longview this P3 did touch n goes runway 13 for 2 hours straight. What a sight!
