Indeed! Cool shot.

Glad you posted that Unique; don't think I'd have seen it otherwise.

Tordado? Maybe Greek for tornado.

probably.

Great shot, I always like photographs with spectacular weather conditions (the wing shot from an Air Berlin 737-700 a while ago with the lightning bolt in the cloud was cool!).

Cheers

What a scary pic indeed. I wonder how ATIS must have sounded like  Wink/being sarcastic Or just think of the pax boarding a plane... I would like to see a 'tordado' when my plane's about to enter the active runway...holy cows LOL

Great picture! A year or two a tornado crossed over DEN. At the time, my dad was in a UA A320 on the tarmac. He swears that the pilot came over the PA to announce " Ladies and Gentleman, this is your captain speaking. We may be held up 30-45 minutes on our departure due to a tornado crossing the active runway." I'm sure it gave the pax a hell of a scare!  Smile
