Centurion Freighter


wpid13522-AU0E0213.jpgI was in the vicinity of SeaTac when I saw on Flightaware that a freighter operated by Centurion Cargo was inbound.  This was not an operator I had seen much of and, since I had a few minutes before I was heading to my next appointment, i thought I would try to catch it.  Getting arrivals at SeaTac in the afternoon when they are coming from the north restricts the options for shooting.  however, there was a place I had been before for departures that I thought I would try.
