I know the watermark is in a terrible spot for this photo, but these days, it's a necessary evil.

I had to make this photo black and white because the original Kodachrome slide is a bit too green- slide film and indoor light with no flash are a bad combination, so better to see it black and white than with an ugly green cast

All concordes were eventually fitted with protective material on the wings so that they cannot be pierced by anything the tires go over on takeoff/landing. Note the temporary red protective tape used on windows and any openings on the airplane

Photographed on the night of 9/09/13 with a lot of luck because about 10 minutes after taking this shot, the lights were shut. I guess it was a test to make sure they work well for the 9/11 memorial. This is also the first 9/11 since 2001 that the new WTC tower is fully constructed, as seen in this photo

Aerogal 767 flies primarily from Guayaquil, Ecuador to New York (JFK) and is only seen at JFK at night as it arrives at 11:30PM and departs at 1:30AM. Seen here at around 1:30am is the pushback for departure on taxiway Alpha Alpha
