Default This was THE day to be at ORD. 8/2/09

As I pulled up today Speedbird was in position and holding on 32L. That's when the fun began. I have other pics to get to from this evening's adventure including LOT's SP-LPB and SP-LBC which departed within minutes of each other. LOT8 (LPB) was PISSING off the guy in the tower because he wasn't keeping the line tight or reading back hold short. He couldn't get him off to Krakow fast enough. I'll get them cleaned up and posted within the next day. Hope you guys enjoy these.

Good Shots, Particularly the Close Up Of The AF 343 Close Up & The Vigin Just Aftyer Rotate. The 343 Needs A Lot Of Asphalt To Get Up & I've Seen The AF 343 Do The Same Thing Here. Cool & Scary At Thae Same Time.

I've seen the A340-600 Lufthansa flies use up at least the entire runway when it takes off. Kinda suprising when they use the long runways.
