    727s @ KBDL

    I had to drive to Hartford after dinner so I decided to take the camera with me and head up to BDL for a bit to try out spotting from the parking garage since I wasn't going to have much sunlight left when I got there. Well, the parking garage was a bust since I could only see ramp action on one side of the terminal and the piano keys on Runway 33. As I was heading down from the top of the garage I looked over towards the FedEx ramp and saw not one but two beauties sitting there.

    I drove over to my favorite spot at BDL for afternoon spotting to try and get a few shots but if the fence wasn't in the way a light pole or something else was. Just as I was driving away and about to give up hope, I realized that if I pulled off to the side of the road on the backside of the airport and very quickly stood on my seat with the door open, that I could snap off a few halfway decent shots. Quality isn't the best, but none the less, the highlight of my night.....

    Both with new paint!

    Thanks buddy! My mood definitely improved when I realized that as long as I was quick I could get a shot. However, I do wish I could have gotten a decent shot showing most of both of them at the same time, instead of just the tails.

    Mine got considerably shorter when I saw this scene last night too.
