okay, as promised, here's my vacation pics "part one"
there's too many to just put in one thread.. so i'll divide it up.
this is all plane pics from the way over there.
ALSO -- EXCUSE THE LARGE SIZE OF MANY OF THESE.. I WILL MAKE SURE IT WONT HAPPEN IN THE NEXT TWO PARTS
Waiting to board at our gate in LaGuardia. Our plane was a 767-300, this EMB-170 was the plane there before ours.
From the aircraft after boarding. A Delta/Song 757 occupies the adjacent gate.
Still at the gate. An American MD-80 climbing out. Gear doors open.
Climbing. Overcast over NYC this morning. We're on our way to Atlanta!
After arrival in Atlanta (camera died before landing )
Our next flight -- also a 767-300.
This is definitely the Delta capital of the world, lol.
Taxiiing past the Hartsfield tower for takeoff.
One of those moving gate trucks.
Video of the takeoff from Atlanta:
Climbing over Georgia/Alabama.
Cruising at FL370. (For the next 8 and a half hours, lol)
Me doing one of the only things you can do on a plane for almost 9 hours, lol.
Finally seeing Maui. I've been there several times and never seen them approach this way. Normally they fly downwind to runway 2 down the valley and make a "U-turn" onto final. On this day our captain decided to go all the way around the east side of the island. (still for runway 2)
Haleakala -- a 10,000-foot dormant volcano.
Spoilers applied during decent.
okay guys.. landing and hawaii pictures/videos are coming next!
Cool pics, thanks. I like the vid.
That seemed like a long takeoff roll in Atlanta -- Thanks for sharing!!

Awesome shots - looking forward to part 2
