Default PHOTOS: O'Hare 3/3/13 with a RARE AA 'Hat Trick'

Gentlemen, Here's the latest from Chicago. Sunday was a day to remember. Amazing weather, rare birds and two AA 'One World' ships. The shot we all wanted was the One World triple holding short to depart RWY28 as the 'One World' 76 arrived on two-eight and taxied back. We need some elevation here! As always, I hope you enjoy the photos! - Koz

Very nice photos! I like the DL DC-9 in particular. It looked like a cool and crisp day at ORD. What area were they taken?

Thanks, Delta! The bare metal looks so good in the winter with the snow reflecting up. It will be missed for sure.

Thanks, Jeff! We were shooting RWY28 from the USG lot and when they switched runways we went just west of York Rd to shoot the arrivals on 10.

Awesome shots! Any idea if the AF flight has been permanently replaced by DL or is it just a temporary thing? And it's weird that the AA 737 is less than a week old and hasnt been painted in the new livery.

Thanks, Saab. I believe the DL flight is covering for the winter. Looks like AF is back on 3/31 with the 330 (5x a week). We also thought the same thing about the AA's new 737. It will be interesting to see how fast they turn it.

Excellent set of photos as always. I like how the snow on the ground makes things very bright. Not that your work needs any help. I like your trips out to O'Hare.

Hi Koz. Where do you take these photos near O'Hare? I've stayed away from trying after all the reports of law enforcement cracking down on this activity - and forgot all about how much fun it used to be! Also, what camera/lenses are you using for these shots? They're great exposures/compositions.

Thank you, Kitty Hawk. The snow helps tremendously. This is easily my favorite time of year to shoot.

Thanks! O'Hare is a great place to for spotting. I've never had a problem with law enforcement. However, I would strongly recommend joining the ORD Watch program through Bensenville PD. they run a background check on you and you'll get an ID and can purchase a vest for when you're out spotting. We're all a part of the program and departments around ORD are hip to us and what we're doing.

Most of these shots were from the USG lot at Lawrence and Scott Rd just off Mannheim. However, once 10C/28C opens south of that lot,the buzz is that arrivals will shift to that location. The hunt is on for a new spot at that point.

As for the camera, I'm shooting a Nikon D90 with the 70-300mm VR and 80-400mm VR

Hope that helps!

Excellent photos. AA my favorites. Rode four separate AA flights this past week. 3 MD8's, one 738. Asked for an off the record opinion about the new scheme, 80% said they'll miss the silver birds , the other 20% said they like the new scheme - (while giving me a "wink-wink").

Everytime I see your shot's Koz, I just want to hang my camera up. I have a D300s, and 70-300VR & 80-200VR and I can't get anywhere near the crisp, sharp lines you get. Aaarrrggghhh. I need to take some lessons to learn how to use my camera!
