    OK, there's been a couple of mentions of having a thread like this, so here we go.

    Post your photos of why you fly - special liveries, rare models, great views at 32,000 feet, favorite airlines, takeoffs, landings...whatever makes flying a [​IMG] experience for you. And keep it clean.[​IMG]

    Please keep your photos around 800 pixels wide to prevent screen formatting issues.

    Not quite as nice as the photos posted so far, but this was the first time I saw her and her sister in person and as the Seinfeld episode went: I think "IT" moved.....so it qualified as plane porn.......

    Is that really a 707 in the front? And, did this occur naturally or is this a PShop?
