Can You See Your Work From The Air?

Sun Apr 04, 2004 12:23 pm

I remember a thread a while back about if you can see your house from the air/from a photograph. So how about your office? Here's mine:



It's one of the office buildings at the Boeing plant at Renton, WA, where the 737 & 757 are manufactured.

If you fly WN into DAL; and they are landing north; and your flight draws 31R; you'll fly right over my office at about 3 miles.
...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...

Years ago, I worked in a building that was under the departure pattern for 22L at ORD. One time, I tried to call work when my flight flew over. Although this was a Sunday, a thought the single workaholic would have been in. He wasn't.

Nice picture of the Boeing's Renton facility BCAInfoSys. I think I remember driving by your office building after hitting the Boeing gift shop last November. I flew up there to see the Concorde arrive at the Museum of Flight.

My brother is a Project Engineer for a large contracting firm in Maryland and his current project is a new building at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD right across the street from the Bethesda Naval Hospital. I was on a flight from BWI to ATL two weeks ago and while flying over DC I clearly saw the NIH campus and the naval hospital as well as the new parking garage which is part of my brother's project.

I have worked at airports for the last 10 years so I have of course seen my "workplace" from the air many times.

Here is a picture of B concourse at BWI where I worked from 4/95 to 1/01. Delta's operations was by the gate where you see the 757 parked.

Delta moved to C concourse on 1/01 due to WN expansion on B. C concourse is the straight one in the middle of the picture.

From 7/01, I have worked in ATL on C,D, and E concourses.

Very possible DAirbus.. I'm on the same road as the giftshop, just a few blocks down. So if you drove to the south from the giftshop, you drove by my building.

It's easy to see my work from the air. Mostly because I work for U of AK Fairbanks, and we stick out like a sore thumb on a hill overlooking Fairbanks.

Look at the large size, about 1/4 of the way down from the top on the left. There's a white building and a line of buildings extending to the right below that. That's all UAF. I work in the Eielson building, which is almost at the right end of the row of buildings.

That was probably more information than any of you want to know.

The building where my office is located lies directly at the entry lane from HAJ. With good weather I can often see if the office window is open.

On the other side: When I work in my office, I have a great view to all the planes that arrive or depart HAJ. Sadly I have not a photo.

That's not too difficult. You better should see my work during an approach:

Depending on the approach to LGA, if lucky can see where I work, the Met Life Building (ex-PanAm Building) as well as another building worked in, the Citibank building. I can often see buildings I have visited in my work too, such as the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings. Of course, we no longer can see two buildings many people worked at in NYC - the WTC towers.
