Pictures from a flight from Bedford to Provincetown (via Norwood, Foxboro, and Plymouth) and back. The Queen Mary 2 was approaching Boston from the north on our flight to the Cape, and docked at the Black Falcon terminal on our flight back.
Pictures from FIDAE 2014, an international air show in Santiago. Highlights included seeing a A-380 flying and maneuvering low, watching people pose with the Air Force pilots from Gringolandia, and chatting up private pilots from Chile and Argentina.
Minor excitement on my way home from TRB – go around on short final because of a gear disagree.
Some real characters were on/in the air last Thursday.
Warrior 6 November Delta (N276ND), formerly registered to the University of North Dakota, inbound to Hanscom from Fitchburg, is shown in red in the video below. It works around jet traffic including a Challenger taking off and turning behind it, a Hawker and Gulfstream taking off before it lands, a 787 from Tokyo flying over in the Logan Class B airspace, and various other pilots with questionable radio behavior.
This weekend will be sandwiched in between two trips to the West Coast. I was home last weekend and will be in Las Vegas next weekend. While I’ve enjoyed some pretty aerial views, that’s way too much flying. I’m on track to have made 21 takeoffs and landings in 2008. Can anyone say carbon footprint?
