For Anyone Who Works At American Airlines

Tue Jan 07, 2003 3:16 pm

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.

here is the photo:

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.

Heh weird.

He clearly wanted his picture taken, or they wouldn't have done it.

Anyhoo... someone at AA could help you definitely... even if you just email their Customer Relations.

The people at DL are good about that, too.

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.

Oops, Capt. Lemon's email address didn't make it in the previous post. Sorry. His email is zane.lemon@aa.com
