Landing KOQN (Brandywine Airport)

It’s fall foliage season, so head out to your local airport and go for a ride. Take in the sights. That’s what I was doing when I took this flight in a venerable Cessna 172. Was a little early for the fall colors, which had just started. Took the opportunity to polish some skills. Here’s a landing:

As you can see, lots of bugs died on the windscreen that day. Was a decent landing and a great flight. Looking forward to many more soon.

Landing 9R at KMIA

Another excellent flight aboard American Airlines. We were on time and arrived in comfort after a nice breakfast. Here’s a look at the landing at Miami International:

There are many professionals working behind the scenes, people we never get to see, making sure our flights are safe. Be a good passenger by cooperating with cabin staff and your fellow travelers. Courtesy is free. Use it liberally. (For those interested, this video was taken with a Nikon 1 AW camera.)

Climb out from 27L

In the previous post, you saw the taxi portion of the flight, lining up on Runway 27L at Philadelphia International Airport. Well, here’s the next phase: Takeoff and climb out.

By the way, that was at 4X speed. But you get the idea. Was a hazy day, too, making for less than ideal video. Still, was a great takeoff over the Delaware River with fine sights below. Safe travels.

Rollout on 27L

Take off is always exciting, the start of another flight. Here’s a look at the rollout on 27L at Philadelphia International Airport.

Of course there are many professionals behind every commercial flight: Pilots, cabin staff, mechanics, air traffic controllers, bag handlers and so forth. Do your best to be a good passenger by cooperating and being kind to your fellow travelers.
