Saturday Morning Queen

As I've said in previous posts, I'm losing my opportunities to catch the Queen, so before doing other things on Saturday, I headed down to the airport to catch her.
 Normally, I wouldn't post a picture like this but it was a livery that I never saw before.  This was a Swift Air 737 landing on the other runway.  She was being used as a charter for the Columbus Blue Jackets who were playing the Detroit Red Wings later on Saturday night.
 It wasn't too long before the Queen appeared.
 She was on her way from Seoul, Korea.

 It was a pretty nice day to catch her.
 A Southwest 737 coming in from Midway.
 This was a Delta 777 that was coming in from Shanghai.
 This 717 was coming in from Philadelphia.
 A Boeing 717 coming in from Charlotte.
 This 767 was coming in from Frankfurt, Germany.
A ERJ-175 coming in from John Glenn Airport in Columbus, Ohio.  John Glenn was a Marine Corps Aviator in World War II, China and Korea.  After the Korean War, he did the first supersonic flight across the United States.  In 1959, he was selected as one of the Mercury Seven Astronauts and became the first American in Orbit.  After resigning from NASA, he would become one of Ohio's U.S. Senators from 1974 to 1999.  In 1998, he became the oldest person to fly on the Space Shuttle.  He died in December of last year.
 This A330 was arriving from Amsterdam.
 This CRJ-700 was arriving from Richmond.
 An MD-88 arriving from Chicago O'Hare Airport.
 An Airbus A319 arriving from LaGuardia.
 A CRJ-900 coming in from Dulles in Washington D.C.
 I don't normally get a chance to catch two planes that are landing at relatively the same time.  So this was kind of cool.  The front plane is an MD-88 coming in from Milwaukee.  Sadly I couldn't make out the tail number of the Spirit plane.
 A Boeing 717 arriving from Boston.
 An Airbus A319 coming in from Denver.
 A CRJ-900 coming in from Charlotte.
 This MD-83 belonging to USA Jets was coming from London, Ontario.
 An ERJ-175 arriving from O'Hare.
 A 757 coming from Orlando.
Another angle of that plane.
 A 737 coming in from Seattle.
 The Lufthansa A330 coming in from Frankfurt.
 Another 757.

This one was coming from Fort Myers, Florida.
I had to stick around for this AeroMexico plane.  I didn't realize that it would have special livery.  I just wish it would have come over the spot where I was.  Oh well.
