Anyhow.....I had to take my wife to a Drs appointment. The route top
and from takes you on a road underneath the 34L&R APP(the aircraft are no
more than 75 ft above)We were on our way home down 188th St when I saw
the A-340 in SAS colors comming in on 34R so I pulled over to watch.
Upon looking at the traffic pattern for 34L I noticed 1 A-310 and 2-MD11
in FED-EX Colors then my eyes went back to the 34R traffic and there
was a NWA DC-10 and a UAL B-757(all of these flights were staggard of

Thats nothing, Every trip i've made in the last 2 years bar 2 have either been heavy rain or very dark and cloudy. I spent 3 hours on a road waiting for an AN-124, eventually I went home only to see it fly overhead as I was leaving on the bus.
I've managed to miss the busiest periods at my airport for the last 6 visits, for one reason or another, I've been soaked and even battered by hailstones on regular occasions.

Dan, I also have my share of An-124 misses - I went out at 1:30 in the morning to get one, but since I didn't have a tripod, I had to balance my camera on its case and a deck of cards that I randomly had. When I went to see it next morning - gone. That went on for about 8 months, now that I finally nailed it, I haven't been able to upload it on a.net - just not there, quality-wise. I'll keep trying though.
Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.
