This is going to be a long shot but I figured I'd try it. During a spotting trip at DFW last month I photographed an AA 757 which had just landed, and I got a closeup of the cockpit as they taxi in. The Pilot and first officer gave me (and the other spotters) a Thumbs-Up. I tried to upload the photo, but it was rejected for showing a person (the Captain) without his permission.
I did not note the flight number. All I have is the aircraft number. is it possible that someone on here who works at AA could retrieve the name of the Captain of that plane, and forward a link to the photo to him, and have him email me? I'd like to ask his permission to display that photo showing him in his cockpit, and I would include his name in the remark section.
Maybe if any AA Pilots are on the board here you might recognize him just by his face & be able to tell who he is. otherwise, the only info that i have is that it was ship #693 (N693AA) and he landed approximately 4:10pm central time on 12/18/02.

Send email to with as much information as you can provide and exactly what you are requesting. Capt. Lemon is the Chief Pilot of the DFW crew base. I was able to find seven 757 inbound flights that might fit your criteria (there might be more), but I'm unable to cross-reference the registration number to an AA "nose number" (AA internal acft numbering system). Capt. Lemon might be able to help.
