What could possibily be more interesting than an approaching A343? An A380 perhaps?

He's probably looking for those illegal photo junkies! Either that or U.S. Customs and Border Patrol is really scaling back on their high tech gear... Here in Toronto we're told to move anyone along who stops and takes pictures. Kind of hard to do when I'm sitting in my cruiser taking pictures myself!

Fantastic photograph, look at the heat shimmer behind. The car is far away from the runway, it looks close because of foreshortening.

Illegal photo junkies? What exactly is illegal about taking a picture of a plane flying in public domain? Not a thing. Know the law spotters! It's on your side! :)
