I decided to head over to the airport again. I was hoping to catch one or both of the 747's coming in from Asia and the Lufthansa flight coming in from Stuttgart. I got a pretty late start this morning, so I wasn't sure if I would make it.
First up is the Southwest Airlines flight from Baltimore. A pretty nasty storm had just passed, so the runway was a little soaked. There were also some delays for the weather. That also meant that the planes had to alter their patterns a bit.
The daily Virgin Atlantic flight from London coming in on the other runway. One of these days, I'll have to figure out a good spot for planes coming in on this runway.
This was Delta 99 heavy as it lands from Charles DeGaulle Airport in Paris. It is an Airbus 330-300. As I type this post, this plane is on its way back to Paris.
I believe this is the flight from Narita Airport in Japan coming in.

I kind of liked the way the light was reflecting off the runway.

I was about ready to go until I saw this 757 taxing for takeoff.
This particular one was on its way to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As I type this post, it is heading back to DTW.
