Nice shot and good comment Randy. I have posted firsts a few times. Be careful not to mention it in the comments though. There are those amongst us who don't like it.  Laugh out loud

I got two in one day two weeks ago, of course it was pure luck, and none of the aircraft where brand new, but only new for the airline (one arrived on it's delivery flight), but still  Smile

I think both of these were pretty rare when I shot them.
Don't know if they are the actual "first" but still, very very new
when I shot them.

Pretty happy.

Being here in Seattle, we get a lot of opportunities to see brand new Boeing aircraft. I am always amazed at how gorgeous these machines look straight from the plant.

I had the opportunity to shoot the first Southwest 737 with winglets. (As did Royal.) You can see shots of those winglets in the DB. I particularly liked this shot, though, as it was pretty overcast that day. Every now and then there'd be sunbreaks. The result was simply beee-yoo-tiful!
