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.

Lo Spiedo, Philadelphia

At the gate of the former Philadelphia Navy Yard, you’ll find Lo Spiedo, a restaurant that has repurposed one of the buildings.

You’ll find seating outside and inside on two levels. Here’s a look at the upstairs.

So let’s get a look at the food, the whole meal in a single shot, which was for two people.

That was the full brisket order, fries, tangy popcorn, squid, and beer. Phew! Lots to eat. Both the brisket and the squid were delicious and cooked perfectly. There’s a lot to eat with that amount of brisket. I’d probably go with the sandwich option next time. Prices here are steep, but the quality backs them up. Lots of on-site parking. Enjoy every meal.

La Porta for Lunch

I stop by La Porta in Media, PA for nice Sunday lunches. They have a creative menu, great bartenders, and a comfortable atmosphere. A treat that is worth the calories is the giant meatball. Take a look:

Lots of flavor there and perfectly cooked, as a snack or an appetizer that beast will hit the spot. They usually have some specials, such as this ravioli:

Wow, that plate was bursting with flavor. And there there’s the pizza:

Made to order in a real pizza oven, the thin crust is done just right. I’ve been known to pop in here just for a pizza, and it’s worth it. So if you’re in the area and hungry, try this place out. I might be there. Enjoy every meal.
