USAIRWAYS_A320_N101UW_CLT_1212B_JP_small.jpgI've been very fortunate to do a lot of neat stuff in my aviation photography career/hobby, but this experience, to be able to land and take off in the A320 simulator is definitely tops! I once again thank the wonderful folks at US Airways for their warm hospitality!
JOE_JFK_1290_JP_small.jpgI'm 40 years old (July 2012), but people I meet at the airport these days don't believe I've been photographing at JFK since 1986! Here I am at the old IAB (now Terminal 4), December 1990 with 3 beauties behind me, Air France Concorde, UTA (France) DC10 and Air Afrique DC10. Forgive my awful cargo attire from those days...

continental737N14231FLL0109.jpgIf you look at the right window, you'll see my friend Jeff DeVore holding up a friendly sign. I snapped the photo just before his 737-800 pushed back from the gate in preparation for departure to Houston IAH
trashcollectorLAX.jpgPicking up FOD (foreign object debris) is everyone's job at the airport, I'm no exception. Everyone at every airport needs to help out to avoid FOD ending up in an airplane's engine
1994jpcolga.jpgThis photo was taken inside one of American Airlines' maintenance hangars in LaGuardia. The MD80 was brought in there for post-crash investigation and as is usually done after an accident, hide it from the passengers flying into and out of the airport. When I walked inside the airplane, about half way down the fuselage I felt a hump under my feet, that is where the fuselage buckled as the airplane ran off the end of the runway (I believe it was runway 31?), coming to rest on a dike. There were no fatalities luckily. For those that know me these days, obviously I don't wear my hair like that anymore haha
