    Amusing scene at ALB

    I don't post much but I have enjoyed browsing these forums over the past year or so. I pass by a drive-in restaurant near ALB several times a week. The place is named The Control Tower and it is right under short final to runway 19. I've never been to LA but I imagine it is similar to In-n-out burger. It's actually a very good spotting location when 19 approaches are in use.

    Anyway, they have a mural painted on the side of the place that always makes me smile:



    I love this for a number of reasons but mostly I love the angle of attack on that 747 and I love the way the 747 casts a sort of DC-9 shadow.

    I thought that the folks that frequent this site might find this amusing too!

    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    I can actually say, I know where that is, I've seen it myself.
    You're right Dan, very comical.

    That's not a DC-9...looks more like Caravelle.
