Chasing the Planes Between the Storm Clouds

I took Monday off to give a talk about my blog to an art group that my mom belonged to.  Since I had some time afterwards and there was some weather coming in, I decided to head over to the airport.  I kind of like plane shots in bad weather.  Unfortunately, I don't remember where all the planes came in from but there are some that I do.
 So this particular plane was serving as Delta Flight 17 from London.  This particular aircraft is a 767 wearing the Delta Skyteam colors.  Skyteam was an airline alliance formed in 2000 and was the last one of three formed.  It is basically a large codesharing agreement between Delta, Air France, Aeromexico and Korean Airlines.  Later Aeroflot, Continental and Northwest were added.  Currently there are 20 members.  Anyway, I kind of liked the gray skies in the background.
 This Embrear 175 was flying in from Newark.
 A CRJ-700.
 I think this 737 was coming in from Las Vegas.
 A CRJ-200.
 Another 700.
 So this Airbus A319 was coming in from Indianapolis which is a 58 minute flight.
 I believe this is a CRJ-100.
 An Embrear 190.
 Another 737 coming for a landing.
 I think this one is a CRJ-700.
 This Airbus A319 was arriving from Boston's Logan Airport.
 An American Eagle Embrear.
 So the first of our afternoon heavies (after the 767 which was more of a morning plane) was the A330 arriving from Amsterdam.
 This 747 was kind of a surprise but it was coming in from Inchon, South Korea.
 Next up was the Lufthansa A340 that was arriving from Frankfurt.
 This particular A330 was coming in from Paris.
 And we almost end with a 757 that was arriving from Florida Southwest International.
 And what I call the beam shot.
And we do end with an A320 belonging to Spirit Airlines.
