Just a beauty of a pic. The heat off the runway adds to the pic !!

I guess I am hoping this pic will beat out a basic Airbus 321 Pic for one of the FA Pics of the Week!
Darryl Sarno

Ken, Darryl, Terry, Greg .... TYVM for the comps. Very much appreciated. (Wave)
Paul, Lender2 .... Spot on comments. Thanx for commenting. (Thumbs up)
Uwe ... Well, howdy, old friend -- and welcome back. (BIG smile) Glad to know you are still working the airport fences. I'm still posting here but not often and for the past year the stuff I post here now is - as you can probably tell - third rate (which fits in quite nicely with the reputation of FA's gallery now). I send the "good ones' to the guys on my e/m distribution list. And speaking of that list -- is your e/m still the same? Just last week, I sent out several pics of an E-2D Hawkeye making an emergency landing and being stopped by an arrestor cable. And also a closeup shot of a Navy Seahawk plucking guys out of Lake Tahoe. Can send to you if you want. If your e/m is still the same, either e/m me ( [email protected] ) or just reply here and I'll send them out. (Wave)
And a NOTE to warmwynds -- You never replied so I'm working on the assumption that you aren't interested. If I'm assuming incorrectly, reply to the above e/m and I'll send. (gcs)
