I had to catch one more set of pictures.

My malaise continued into Sunday but I looked at the flight patterns and decided that I wanted to catch a 747 in take off. So I headed over to Metro Airport. It was a nice day but a little muggy.
I took kind of a convoluted way home, so I decided to make a quick stop at the Ann Arbor Airport on the off chance that I could catch a plane or two.
I didn't really feel like doing much this weekend, so I ended up heading over to Chelsea. Little did I realize that it was also the weekend of the Chelsea Art Festival. But that didn't deter me too much.
On Friday Night I decided to head over to the airport again in order to the catch the 787 taking off. I figured that it would be taking off in the right direction for me to get pictures of it.

So on Thursday night, I decided to head over to the airport again. I wasn't really after anything in particular other than getting some shots of planes taking off. I was shooting from the field between Wick and Smith Roads. The planes were taking off to the north.
I hoped to catch the Royal Jordanian 787 as it came in for a landing. The traffic patterns were right for me. The only problem was that it came it at 5:00 instead of the later time it was coming in. So I went home, ate dinner and then decided to go out to catch it taking off. It normally takes off around 8:00 P.M. or so.
I had lunch in the office on Tuesday, so that meant some planewatching before going back to work after lunch. There wasn't too much big stuff, but there was this Cessna 152. It has appeared many times on this blog though.
A Jet Blue A320. With the angle I took it at, it almost looks like it is going rocket.
N923DL taking off for Cleveland. This is an MD-88.
It was followed by N923DN which was headed to Atlanta.
This CRJ-900 was on its way to O'Hare Airport in Chicago.
And another one.
An Airbus A320.
