For as long as I can remember I've liked airplanes. Probably one of the first things I learned was the airport beacon because that meant there were planes nearby. At one time, I even had dreams of being a fighter pilot but glasses got in the way of that. If I'm outside and I hear a plane fly overhead, I always have to look up. As you can imagine, I was pretty happy to start finding spots around Metro Airport where I could watch planes relatively unmolested.
As I said in the last post, the heavies tend to land at Detroit from about 12:30 to 2:30 or thereabouts. With that, I decided to head over to Metro to catch the normal array of heavies.
