Wow, all I can say is I'm very surprised at how well my 5th photo here at airliners.net has been doing. It just passed 4000 hits after only one month and a few days!

Yeah, its really cool to see your pics rocketting up into thousands of hits. One of mine (still my most popular) hit 4000 in just 2 days, so that was pretty amazing!

Cool shot, F707 right?

Those snowy mountain shots are one of my favorites, but, that spot will no longer be availiable soon, becasue they are building a new RWY parallel to that one. But, I hope there will be a new spot!  Smile

Congrats Shawn,

Indeed it is a rush when a pic passes the 1000 mark. You can't go wrong on a flight deck shot, always a big numbers getter!

Did I read your comments correctly ? The captain actually allowed everyone on board up in the flight deck ? How many people were on that flight ? Considering the era in which we live, I find this curious even if the plane was still on the ground. Regardless this was a certainly gracious gesture and nice P.R. move for UA on the part of the pilot

While most flight deck shots are of little interest to me, yours however is very cleverly done adding the pilot's hand and the CRT gives this shot a nice editorial element to the image, this would make a great stock image. Other memorable flight deck shooters are Jan Mogren, Ivan Rodriguez and Vasco Garcia who went well beyond the ordinary.

Again congrats,

Thomas

Thanks Thomas, actually that's what the captain said - "you're all invited up to the cockpit, just don't come crowding up all at once"

So when I heard this, my sister and I raced up front. I was so focused on getting to the cockpit I didn't even notice the first class section!

There were only kids coming up though. At one time there were five of us, plus the pilots inside the cockpit. It's huge up there! By the time we came out there was a line starting outside the cockpit of more people wanting to see it.

I too was amazed by this. Even in New York for chrissakes. But it happened, and I sure was glad...
