Roaring out from runway 01R, this PHX-bound A320 gets dwarfed by the New York-New York hotel and casinos behind. I really love the effect of the jetblast on the hotel background.

Well, that does it.....7 for 7, all five stars!
I completely agree about the background.....where else but Vegas can you get take-off shots with NYC skyline for a background? Hey, look at that guy go.......he must be in a hurry to get to PHX!

But nah, the 320 is a lot different looking than the
737-200....much different nose, much fatter engines, different vertical stab, etc, etc etc ! ( see what looking at A.net photos day-in, day-out does for you?)
Makes you an "armchair-airliner X-pert!) ( LOL!)

I totally agree with the last commenter; the A320 is a nice looking a/c from tail to front door; forward of the door, it looks like they "spliced on" a nose from an old salvaged DC-3!
(Still a fabulous photo though!)

Great Shot! Although the phrase, "Please open the window shades for take-off" has been ignored by 50% of the passengers in the Foxtrot seats :/
