Please help ID airline, airport and aircraft from old photos

Fri Jan 22, 2021 2:23 am

Before I got into planes, I happened to take the following pictures on a trip from somewhere in New England to Florida. This is from February 2010.

Normally we'd fly out of Boston but this is obviously not BOS.

Hope the wing and engine provide some clues! There's a video at the bottom to help ID the airport.

Thanks in advance! It's driving me nuts to not know.

Definitely a 767. I'd say it's possibly a US Airways 767-200. Does not look like PHL. Could it possibly be BDL?

I actually think it's DL 767-300 domestic now looking at it. DL did fly to FLL, RSW, and MCO from BDL circa 2010. They've also flown 767's to BDL in the past.

It's a United 757 in the battleship gray livery.

Engine pylon is painted blue (Delta is gray, only engine cowlings are blue). The illustration is of a man reading a gray United safety card in the safety card-its a little detail in many of their safety cards. Also, the top of the wing has a long row of vortex generators whereas the 767 only has two small clusters of three and four. I think its IAD, take off from RWY 30 with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Fire Station 302 building visible from the end of the runway.

Wow, I'm impressed! I'm amazed you picked up on the safety card detail. I knew the engine pylon color was a big clue. They are usually silver/gray. And yes, I think you're right on RWY 30. Thanks so much!
