A nice set of vortices trail this MD83 in a rare approach to runway 21 at PDX.

Great contrast with the dark background and brightness of the airplane and vortices. Nice angle too! I like the shot John.

Amazing colors...the shiny shiny shiny MD80 vs the dark dull gray sky...and the vortices are great also! I can't wait to go to PDX!

Very awesome effect. This DC-9 looks like it has got strings trailing off the leading edges. Also, it is being chased by bad weather
