@Ronnie 2¢: Yeah you're right! In this instance it was just a 35 minute hop between cities. Thanks for the visit Ronnie!

It can land in places where the 747 can't. Nice shot.

A small one : a Canadair ?

@Calusarus: Yes very small, 19 seats. According to my research it's a Beechcraft 1900D. Or as Jamesy put it "a flying pencil". :)

MadScientist from Düsseldorf, Germany

You have flying buses down there? :-)

Margie, how many times do you have to be told to stop rolling on strange floors picking up lint! I love the way you have taken this..is it called angle by you photography buffs?
