When is it leaving, I don't have to be in class for quite some time tomorrow and would love to stand around with my camera waiting for it to depart.

Don't know . I actually work directly behind runway 25R so my workshop is dead on in front of whatever is parked there.

Get down there now

Last time i saw this beauty was in 2001 when i was back home in ATH. Putin was visiting Karamanlis ( Greek PM ) as part of a Russian business deligation. Man it's good to see her again.
