I went to significant effort today to drive up to Worcester/ORH to catch the last departure of Allegiant Air from that city. The event was more significant than just an airline pulling out of an airport, as Worcester is left without scheduled passenger service as a result of this event.
Hurricane Ernesto's remnants passed over us this weekend, and the worst weather from the storm seemed to hit right around flight time. The area around the terminal was so fogged in that you could barely see the airplane taxi in, much less get a decent photo. The conditions were better out at the end of Runway 11, but it was still horrible, rainy weather. Here's the best shot I could manage in the conditions:
Frankly, the picture turned out better than I thought it would, but that's not saying much. This is one of those shots that under different conditions I'd bag and wait for a better day. However, it will probably be a number of years before I or anybody else gets a chance to shoot a mainline jetliner in Worcester. What do you think? Any chance of this one making the cut?
