I Nailed The LH 744 At DEN!

Tue Jan 27, 2004 8:23 am

Yep, that's right, I did it. LH is flying a 744 to DEN until the end of January, and I caught it. Congrats to me. WOOHOO!!

(Hows about that one for self gloss?)

You say.. ..I have already submitted THEM..

If you submitted more then one of the same a/c, more then likely, and rightfully so, they will be kicked out as bad double. Pick your best shot, and submit it in the future.

Did you NAIL it from the reservoir? ROFL....

I nailed one of the last nights of Avro service at GFK. It is okay though, I saw it the next day at MSP  Wink/being sarcastic.

I only uploaded that shot (it was rejected), and I actually shot it from a farm road just south of the airport, I have a decent pic of a UA 757 that I shot from the reservoir.

p.s. I will probably put them on myav.net.

TJ,
You stated one of the last nights of ARJ service at GFK.. I thought Mesaba was keeping them, with the new contract.

With the ARJ's at GFK, they're gone for now (have been for a few weeks). We're hoping that they'll be back this spring though. As of now it looks like she'll be back starting Feb 15 (according to NW timetable).

The photo is up on myav.net, but I think I will learn to take better motion pictures before I submitt again. I shot on film, I also think I need a better scanner.

I would get a little closer, and put the sun behind you as well.

Did you see them?

With the pic of the terminal and the UA777, the sun was behind me, but with all the others, it was infront of me, especially with the BA and LH, I was driving, glanced out the window, and saw the BA coming in, so I pulled over and took several pics of it. About 90 seconds (funny how that works out, seing as normal pattern structure is every 90 seconds!) after the BA came, the LH came, and I did the same thing. but yeah I agree I should have planned it better.

...A comment from an apparently unseasoned photographer. You obviously do not understand that the beauty of the timed exposure comes from the subject not moving.  Nuts Maybe if you did a little bit of research on these things you would not look so ignorant when posting stupid remarks like the one above. Also, the next time you try trolling me, why don't you put some effort into it...thanks  Wink/being sarcastic

Chad,
GFK was one of the five cities that lost Avro service when they were parked. Weekend ARJ service starts back here later this month.

I can safely say that I only have five shots of four ARJs at GFK. We have just as many 737s pictured, that are not regular service, as the regularly scheduled Avros. I would go out on a limb and say that we make GFK look somewhat like an airport. Just watch for our newest photographers in the next few weeks! GFK shots will be blowing up  Smile/happy/getting dizzy.
