    October 1st A380 and BDL (Pics)

    After missing the mighty beast in New York in March while I was out of the country I was extremely excited to hear that she would be visiting Bradley(BDL) which is a two hour drive from my house.

    Unfortunately the weather did not turn out great for the arrival but at least it opened up afterwards.

    A special big thanks to Raj for showing me around the airport and helping us out!

    Nice shots, Gordon. Glad you were able to finally catch the beast! What is that 4-engine jet in the first of your "Other Activity" shots?

    Great shots, Gordon. Particularly like the photo with the ALSF-2 array underneath; great angle. If I wasn't taking off school Friday for AOPA Expo in Hartford, I probably would have gone up since it's only an hour from my house.

    I love BDL,
    I remember when MK airlines 747-200s and Laker Airways 727-200s flew there.

    Did the A380 land on runway 6 or 24?

    That was an ATI DC-8, Moose.

    The A380 landed on runway 24, Senga.

    I'll definitely be heading up to that airport once in a while now since I know that it has some great spots!

    Excellent photos - I'm jealous! I need to get my eye back in the game, I've been really disappointed with a lot of my approach type shots recently!

    Well it was thrilling day.... a visit by the largest jetliner in the 2nd smallest state! Crowds were estimated at 1500+ and it was a scene of oos and aah as the guest of honor made the appearence. Heres my report....
    After landing on Rwy 06 "Echo Alpha" turns towards deicing area as AA 73 is about to line up Rwy 06






    After the sun moved....


    Sorry Gordon, I wish you could have stayed. This one is dedicated to you & Sr. and for your spotting efforts @ BDL .


    Comparing the 2 BUSES! This is how VIPs got bused in front of the jetliner.




    And now the regular stuff....
    A group of 3 A10s from CT ANG made a low pass over Rwy 24, brokeoff and landed....






    Arriving...


    Departing...




    Always great pleasure to catch the old schemes... :D
