I took these pictures recently on the north end of Greensboro. This Fed Ex MD-11 flew over and my eyes got big and I couldn't find my camera. I was bummed. I had missed the shot. But soon I realized that, either they were doing touch and go's, landing and taking off over and over, or there were multiple Heavies landing at the airport. I think the former is the case.
I got the picture...a couple of times.
That MD-11 looked huge as it flew the low approach to PTI. It looked especially large for 2 reasons.....most of the planes landing at PTI are relatively small comared to this DC-10s younger, more electronically advanced cousin.
The other thing was the forced perspective of this jumbo jet flying over the shopping center as if it was setting down in the loading zone.
It was a truely impressive site.
I don't get what those homeowners in the flight path of the airport are complaining about. I could watch planes land all day. ;)
