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

The airplanes in the background are in line for 31L departure and there are more airplanes in front of the ones you see in the photo (look at the 7 thousand foot marker). All it takes is an afternoon thunderstorm and JFK, EWR and LGA can get very messy given the massive traffic coming in and out of those airports during the evening rush

101 viewsAirline: Fine AirType: DC8Registration: N7046HAirport: MIACity: MiamiState: FloridaCountry: USADate Taken: January 1997Fine Air was kind enough to provide me with unrestricted access with one of their senior managers around their entire facility at MIA including going inside these old workhorse DC8's and also doing some night photography from their hangar roof. 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

I actually watched this building being built about 13 years ago, it truly is an amazing place and is incredibly well run, hence its enormous success as not only an airport terminal but also a robust retail shopping experience

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