Today, I flew to FLL on none other than Southwest! Hope you enjoy some pics from this trip.
My aircraft, N8626B, a 3.5 year old Boeing 737-800
Ground crew hard at work
I thought this was my bag being loaded in, but when I got a closer look it wasn’t.
Sheldon the Sea Turtle smoking the mains landing on runway 24 from Atlanta
Perhaps my favorite part of the airport
I wonder what would happen if something hit the tail… would it leave a dent or would it break the glass and all the water (Sheldon included) would pour out?
Offloading passengers and bags, and getting ready for it’s return flight to Atlanta
Pilot doing the walk-around check! (Poor quality as it is a screenshot from a Snapchat video I took)
Southwest 737-700 taxiing past from Orlando
Another shot because why not
Time to head back to Concourse A, my flight was going to board shortly!
Peeking out over a gate
Baby -700 getting loaded up with fuel, bags, and all that good stuff for Baltimore
Boarding my plane!
My seat, 8F (took this picture after we landed). For a very-close-to-full flight and an A53 boarding pass, I scored a pretty good seat!
Just can’t seem to get enough of this turtle!
2-3 minutes after takeoff, turning southbound over an inlet. I didn’t take too many pictures on the climb out, as I filmed the takeoff and was just enjoying the view outside after that!
Over Smith Point beach
2 different shades of water color!
Passing in between 2 cloud layers. I took a really cool video of the clouds racing below us, it was amazing!!
Cruising at FL360 over rural Delaware
Came pretty close to a JetBlue A321. He emerged from behind our engine. I scrambled to get my camera and the zoom lens!
Look how close he was. He was even closer before that!
Flying over Norfolk/Virginia Beach
Cloud rows over North Carolina
I just LUV Southwest
In a World Full of No, We’re a Plane Full of Yes! I highly recommend those Belvita cranberry orange cookies. 😍😍
Beginning our descent!
Who can guess the airport?
Entering the left downwind for 10L at FLL
BB&T Center in Sunrise, where the Florida Panthers (NHL team) play
Pulled into gate B2! As we were pulling into the gate, I saw the reflection of a Delta 757-200 taking off. The way it graciously climbed into the sky and the wavy reflection moving across the windows was beautiful!
Total Flying Time: 2 hours 28 minutes
Cameras used: Canon Rebel t6i, 18-55MM and 75-300MM lens, iPhone 6
Thanks for browsing through the whole thing! Which picture(s) was your favorite?
