I'm not sure how to crop this photo. The shot is not 100% nose-on so the aircraft is at a slight angle. I first tried cropping using the engines as reference for centering. But it didn't look right to me. So I tried using the fuselage as a whole and the nose gear as reference. This looks better to my eyes even though the engines and main landing gear are not centered. If you go by the emtpy space (sky) this seems to be overall centered. What do you guys think?? Thanks.

The Shamu paint job looks sweet on the -700s! I haven't seen N501SW and N507SW in quite some time so I have a feeling they have been in the paint shop. If that's the case, we will be back down to three Shamus. But with LAS being our biggest station, I'd say chances of catching one are still high on any particular day. The -500s are more limited as far as routing. That is why they replaced the two (-500s) Shamus with -700s...to increase exposure for Sea World system wide. So no matter where you go, if WN flies there, you now have a better chance of catching a Shamu!
However, your best chance was 1-2 months ago when we had 5 Shamus flying!

Very nice Ryan! Get some dates to non-rev to LAS. We got to shoot! Good luck on that pic I hope it gets in. You never know an ice storm can hit LAS and divert some WN stuff to IFP! How cool would that be!
