He seems like a normal anetter or train geek except he is saying what is normally going through our heads. I envy guys like that, to get so much satisfaction from something so simple. He definitely seems a lot happier than I ever am so I reckon I'm the loser. The video would have been better without him talking all over it though. Looked like a nice peaceful station with a cool train which is enough for me!

I heard about this guy on Pittsburgh's 105.9 The X morning show all last week. Apparently after a show one of the hosts got ahold of a prominent leader in the Foamer community. After some discussion about their hobby he asked the foamer about this guy and his video. Apparently this guy was not pleased with the question nor this individual and his videos, and the conversation ended shortly thereafter.
This guy is a little obsessive, but I can't say I didn't get a little excited when seeing a C5 take off from my vantage point on the ramp during Wings over Pittsburgh!

I'm pretty sure many a.netters are like that when they see certain aircraft...I was exactly like that inside my head when I saw the Antovov An-225 for the first and only time. I had been waiting to see that aircraft for weeks and then I woke up at 4AM to go to the airport and see it. Just a difference in subject... I suppose most of us are the same with him
What's this "inside" business? I happened to be aboard a BA 777 landing at LHR from EWR. We taxied RIGHT behind the SQ A380 that had just completed its first ever revenue flight from SIN to LHR sittinig at the gate ON MY SIDE OF THE PLANE. OK, I didn't put on a scene like this guy because I didn't want to be walked off the plane in handcuffs, but I certainly told my seatmates (who I didn't know) all about it. The looks on their faces were priceless.
And when the first LAN 767 departed SFO, my husband certainly made noises like this guy as it left. There were a bunch of us hooting and hollaring when the first LH A380 landed at SFO, too.
