Ethiopian Airlines has been taking delivery of some Boeing 777F freighters for their cargo operations.  One of the new jets was being readied for delivery while I was at Paine Field.  Operations were in a northerly direction so, from the … Continue reading

Under the Ruslan

I have shot a lot of Antonov 124s at Everett since they are there on a regular basis.  One weekend recently, a Volga-Dnepr flight was scheduled in to SeaTac.  Shooting at SeaTac is a bit restricted in what you can … Continue reading
