On September 8th of this year, which if you’re seeing this on it’s first day posted, would’ve been yesterday, I went plane spotting at my home area’s largest airport: Medford Rogue Valley International. The air was warm, but since the sky was clear of smoke, I went to catch the 10-Tanker DC-10 that was running in and out of there that day. I’d also catch a number of other aircraft in the hour and a half I was there.
On to the photos…
1| N405QX getting pushed back and getting its engines going for a flight up to Seattle
2| The star of the show, N522AX, is starting up its engines!
3| N705SK arriving from Phoenix, Arizona
4| N522AX up nice and close for the camera, taxiing to runway 32 for takeoff to fight a fire near Goose Lake in the tippy top right corner of California. The spooling up and down of the engines sounded amazing.
5| N522AX launching out, after eating up so much runway. It’s be over an hour before i see it again
6| N285SY getting ready to taxi for a hop over to Salt Lake City
7| N705SK now being detached from the pushback vehicle for a return flight to Phoenix.
8| N635AC taxiing to runway 32, off to the same fire N522AX was going to. Speaking of the N522AX…
9| N522AX on short final for runway 32
10| N522AX crossing runway 32 to get to its parking area, to be turned around once more
