    Fort Worth/Dallas Area, 10/3-5/2014 (Very Very Image Heavy)

    Howdy Folks,

    This week I present a fairly large sampling of images from KNFW, KAFW, and KDFW in the Dallas area. I initially traveled up for a warbird event that I would up skipping, but I think I made out well in terms of action despite that.

    Day 1, NAS JRB Fort Worth

    Given the rough light, just two from the base

    I then caught wind of some classic jet action over at Alliance and decided to abandon the base and head north, and I am very glad I did.

    First up at Alliance, USAJets' MD-80 freighter, a first for me

    One of the ubiquitous T-38s

    The real reason for the trip, Kalitta Charter II's N726CK, the first 727 I ever shot some 2+ years ago

    A Gulfstream test flight from the DAL facility

    New Envoy service direct to the Sea of Tranquility


    And no, the 727 above did not magically grow winglets, we had 2 trijets in that afternoon! Here is N729CK barely beating sunset on departure

    Day 2: KDFW

    Due to a fuel pump fracaso, Qantas' VH-OQL arrived slightly later than intended, sporting decals for the new DFW service

    This was my first time catching Spirit with sharklets

    IMG_1508_filtered by Nicholas Peterman, on Flickr


    I never get tired of these 777-300ERs

    IMG_1517_filtered by Nicholas Peterman, on Flickr


    KLM made a very rare late arrival enabling photos

    IMG_1538_filtered by Nicholas Peterman, on Flickr


    I guess I should shoot these now given their impending livery change

    IMG_1556_filtered by Nicholas Peterman, on Flickr


    Another dying sight, the shiny 763

    IMG_1594_filtered by Nicholas Peterman, on Flickr


    Flagship Tulsa II, the greatest special livery ever!

    One of several victims of a nose-job gone wrong

    My first encounter with an AA321 of any flavor

    IMG_1691_filtered by Nicholas Peterman, on Flickr


    I then decided to switch to my very neglected EF 400mm F5.6L for the first time since October of 2012... and was pleased with the results!

    Day 3: KDFW again

    Started out on the east side to chase a special visitor from PHL, and snagged this Air Canada RJ whilst waiting

    With half of my family being from the Pittsburgh area, catching this one was a exciting after all these years

    The MD-11F always is a nice catch

    can't argue with that kind of light! Nice shot of the steelers 319. i got to ride that bird down to Charlotte from
    Richmond a week ago and was delighted at 445am when I saw that's be my ride.

    Keep up the good work down there.
