    Heck of a first time for you to catch the 748, other than the rollout that is. Lucky timing and also glad not too serious of an incident.

    Great stuff Jeremy! That tire looked pretty intact considering (not shredded)

    Great coverage as usual, Jeremy. Are you sleeping in a tent at BFI these days??? Seems like you are always in the right spot at the right time!

    thanks everyone!

    Are you sleeping in a tent at BFI these days???
    haha, no. I've just been extremely lucky as of late. Looking through my folders I can't even see a photo set from the last time I just went out spotting at BFI, and other than gate spotting during a trip to Texas I haven't spotted at all in at least two months. The Ameriflight was also total luck - I was in the neighborhood to pick up a package from the UPS distribution plant but it hadn't arrived yet so I drove the 1/2 mile to BFI and found that incident under way.
