PDX This Week

Tue Aug 09, 2011 7:14 pm

Anyone gonna be out at PDX Wednesday/Thursday?

I'd like to know if any new metal from Seattle will be flying through PDX for certification/training purposes. Sure would be nice to catch them going off the Northside with the south runway closed.

I hope you caught the ultra-rare IL-76 departure today!

Get upto the carpark for excellent shots all day long, and then get some Voodoo Donuts on the way out..

Oh I got that IL76! Unfortunately, I believe heat-haze soured the photo op. Doubt the screeners will allow the quality. Nevertheless, I was able to bag some nice pics of the evening departures. And a thanks to the kind PDX spotters I met on the garage yesterday. (And Skip from the Port of Portland who reminded me that Aviation Photography is welcomed by the local police!... wow!)
