As I was heading into work on Tuesday, I heard an unusual sound in the sky. Of course I looked up and saw this.
Development of the Condor started in the 1980's by the Antonov Design Bureau in the the Ukranian SSR (now the Ukraine). The An-124 is the largest military transport in the world.

The Snow Queen
I didn't really feel like doing much today. There wasn't a ton of traffic on the river and it was snowing. That didn't stop me from catching the Queen.

A Detroit Edison Switcher Engine
Every so often when I pass the St. Clair Power Plant during my travels to hunt down ships, I will pass one of the switcher engines at the St. Clair Power plant. Generally they are not in a position where I can catch them.

The Claude A. Desgagnes Makes an Appearance
Technically, this is the second appearance of this ship but the first was a glimpse of her bow, so I'm not sure it really counts.

Shortly after the newest Algoma Equinox class boats passed by, I was greeted by the oldest of that class.

The Great Lakes Welcome Their Newest Resident
Back in 2013, we saw the introduction of the Algoma Equinox. She was the lead ship of an 8 ship class of ships that were to be built in China for the Algoma Central corporation. I was able to catch that ship as she worked her way up the lakes on her first cargo run.

Two Views of the Detroit Skyline
Since I went to two different places, I figured I would grab two different pictures of the skyline.

The Mesabi Miner Sails Past Detroit
I was up at the Troy office today and prior to leaving I took a look at Marine Traffic to see if there was anything passing while I'd be passing Detroit. It turns out that there was.
