    Blue Bravest Shoot in Houston

    I have been wanting to get some shots of the Blue Bravest ever since it came out. Unfortunately, JetBlue only sends the Embraers to Houston. Our schedule changed a bit this past week, and one of our Boston flights was operated by the A320. Originally, they were only supposed to be the sharklet A320's with the boring barcode tail; however, I sent a few emails asking for a tail swap. This past Friday, about an hour before departure from Boston, the swap was made. By the time I got to work and saw it was coming in, I could have kicked myself for not bringing my camera to work! I checked before I went to bed the night before, and it wasn't showing coming to Houston. Anyways, I live 45 minutes from work, so I drove right back home to get my gear. I also called a friend of mine to come out to shoot it. He is a former FDNY EMT, and I knew this plane would have a special meaning to him. As of today, Houston is an all Embraer station again indefinitely. Here are the shots I got.

    Thanks, everyone! It's definitely a snazzy livery - probably my favorite one out there right now.

    Those are some incredible shots Timothy, thanks for sharing! You certainly made the most of the opportunity, and that second to last shot is an absolute stunner!

    Timothy I love the Awesome shots and scheme and also I am very impressed with your determination in trying to get this Special bird re-routed to HOU and love that you drove home to get your gear. Despite the heat and humidity and looks like mid day the light seemed to really co-operate with a Beautiful sky and lighting. I don't have a DSLR just a large point and shoot (Panasonic FZ-150) but I learned a long time ago I always take it to work (LGA) every day cause you never know whats going to come in and surprise you.

    Bravo

    Awesome shots. One of my favorite liveries out there. I might be partial though.
