Oh Dear, Thank you Baldwin. You just served the purpose of a good cause this page was created. While those couple of others here made derogatory comments despite having zero knowledge about what is the issue that is being brought into focus,you made that big difference. I do not want to write the details of actions on these criminals, it's been going on for so long they must be dealt with severe legal punishment besides loosing pilot credentials and loosing their business must go to jail. I have enough evidence that they are not on their own, they are supported by some agency which I am still trying to find out. Any inputs like yours, any ideas and pertinent information will be greatly appreciated, that is exactly why I sought out place like Flghtaware, it helps me to track them from their take off till they land, thanks to Flightaware and other sites that provide these information!!.

T/O flaps, amount determined by aircraft weight, runway length, airport density altitude. Can actually be 0 flaps but with slats. Slats are usually the first part of any flaps extension.

That's right Jerome, the only reason we see Delta 757's at YYZ anymore is for sports charters.

I've been impressed with C130s ever since seeing one in an air show that was outfitted with rockets on both sides, showing how they were outfitted during the Viet Nam war in order to be able to take off on short runways. They fired those rockets partway down runway, and was that ever loud. Unbelievable how that plane shot up into the air at that point.

Great shot, for several reasons.

Still another overcast day. I'll admit that earlier this year I was enjoying the opportunities to snap some inclement WX pics, but now I'm ready for the bright blue skies of summer.

Modular Airborne FireFighting System
The Modular Airborne FireFighting System or MAFFS is a self-contained unit used for aerial firefighting that can be loaded onto a C-130 Hercules, a military cargo transport, which then allows the aircraft to be used as an air tanker against wildfires.[1] This allows the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to use military aircraft from the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve to serve as an emergency backup resource to the civilian air tanker fleet.[1][2]

Sorry about that; should have typed 757 instead of 575.

Written on 26/05/2017 by Jerome Kendrick

Looking at the activity log below, I would venture to say this is the 575 that is used to carry the Seattle Mariners Baseball Club to its away games. Their last stop before returning home was with the Toronto Blue Jays, they just finished a four game series with the Washington Nationals and are now (Friday, May 26) are in Boston for a three game series with the Red Sox.

An odd picture... are the flaps deployed ?? Slats look down. Hmmmm, didn't think this was in the "rule book".

I had some time before our flight left coming home from our last trip and decided to take some shots of all the activity at ORD. Nothing spectacular, but not too bad. I have a few more I'll post soon.

I thought that was a container ship company. not an airline.

If that engine gets any bigger it will drag the ground if they don't put longer strut's on the landing gear.

Hero of the BERLIN Air Lift & they still fly. ONE TOUGH BIRD.I had the chance to fly on one in about 1999. What great experience for a novice. It was Quite noisey.Bt the thrill was still there.

Written on 26/05/2017 by roland pfeifer

We almost missed getting captures of this one. We were positioned to get as close as possible to catch it in the air, but just as it was contacting the tower, the airport announced it was flipping runways to use the 34s because the winds were shifting direction and increasing in velocity. We could never have managed to reposition to the south end of the airport in time. But then we heard the tower clear this flight to "be the final inbound" to land on 16L before the runway change.

Written on 26/05/2017 by Gary Schenauer

Looks like it can get the job done.

Written on 26/05/2017 by roland pfeifer

Those air ambulances are a godsend! We have some EC135s round where I live and they're on call out constantly. Great to see them in action, though of course sometimes it's too late for them. Kudos to pilots and crew who fly in them.

Written on 26/05/2017 by trennor turcotte

Great shot, that show's the novice like myself, what happen's off of the wingtip's which would normally not be seen & can cause problems to those unaware.

This a/c was so over engineered that it is still flying safely 60-70 years later......
