    LAS - 11/7/2014 (Image Heavy)

    Here's some spotting from my second day at LAS before heading out to Nellis as we waited on Eric to arrive. No specific order on the pics. Enjoy the Janet's!

    Nice backdrop for departures off the 1s

    Great shots and magnificent light. You are so lucky to get the SP in action. Who airline owns that Saab-2000?

    The Saab from what I was told is owned by the US Department of Justice and was transporting prisoners to their new home. When I zoomed in, there are folks dressed in orange (look at the guy right in front of the prop, and near the wing tip).

    I have to admit, I'm very pleased to finally log into the message boards here and see a set of photos that actually made me smile. These are terrific! The Omni 762 photo is money. Also, your photo of the AirTran 737 is a keeper. Won't be seeing those after the new year. -- and the United 738 leaving 1R/L with the Wynn hotel framed to the right, god damn! -- scroll a couple images down and a 747SP lifting off 1R/L smacks me in the face!! *ouch!*

    I don't get to go to Vegas slinging cameras this winter now because you've killed it.

    Mark. Thank you for this collection.

    Thanks for the comments gents! I was thrilled to death to have finally spotted at LAS. Definitely looking forward to another trip down in the future. Thanks to Steve, Manny, Jared, Isaac, Don, Eric and other's (Chris and the Polish Delegation) for making this a great trip. Now to work on the next set!

    Well done Mark! Glad you guys got lucky with the 1s. If you can sneak out there this winter let me know!

    Absolutely breathtaking - how often do we get the chance to photograph an SP in action. Thanks for sharing all of these amazing images

    Mark- Literally, I would die to have all those catches. Great set!
