Twilight at the Aluminum Aviary

I decided to stop at Metro Airport on the way home.  Earlier today, I saw that there would be a 747 flight coming in from Orlando.
 First up was a 757-200 arriving from Florida Southwest Airport.
 Since the planes were landing from the south, I decided to watch from the parking structure tonight.  I couldn't believe how packed it was, so  I wasn't able to get in the best spot.  I was trying to catch some tire smoke.
 A Delta 737 coming in for a landing.
 And it was closely followed by a Southwest 737.  Although Southwest 737 is redundant.
 An Embrear 175 coming in for a landing.
 Next up was the MD-11 coming in from Memphis.  I think this is an almost daily flight.  It is pretty cool to catch at any rate.
 An Airbus A319 landing after the flight from Logan International in Boston.
 Occasionally the smaller Airbuses are guided by their mothers until they gain the confidence to fly somewhere on their own.
 The smaller Airbus was an A320. I'm not sure where it was flying from.
The larger was an A330 which was arriving from San Francisco.

I was flying that A330 from SFO. The last 50 miles was a rough ride ahead of that rain.
