    Duane,

    I like the photograph and the grain it has. May I ask what type of aircraft you fly? A friend of mine who once flew for TWA was an L1011 captain and he really enjoyed that aircraft.

    Hi Bruce,

    This is a Gulfstream 550 that I'm flying. Its a little newer than the L1011!

    Off topic, but my most memorable flight was one of my worst, on a TWA flight in what was then a very aged L1011. Everything about the aircraft seemed well past its best before date. I'd been taking a rare trip home on a weekend to Vancouver from New York where I'd been transferred to, and this flight convinced me that I really wanted to return home to stay in the Pacific Northwest. I'd decided I'd had enough by the time we touched down in Seattle. I quit my job first thing Monday morning after spending a weekend hiking in the mountains and rock climbing with old friends.

    Thanks TWA!

    Wonderful shot, Duane and a superb black and white. The light on the plane's stairs and the background glow of the sky are beautiful.
