Sports Charter Finale | December - January @ KBUF

Hello community!

Here’s your Buffalo shoutout @MJP_27

With the Bills’ loss to Kansas City yesterday, the '20 - '21 charter season is over. Here are the final few pictures from December and January.



Week Sixteen [27DEC20] - Delta 767-432(ER) N844MH - Buffalo to New England Patriots

Was supposed to be writing my college supplements, but I couldn’t miss this. It was supposed to be a 3:10 PM departure, but due to players not arriving it was delayed three hours and change. I didn’t even bring my tripod, but with a fence and a fast lens everything turned out alright.

f/1.8 1/30 ISO400 @ 18 mm


Week Seventeen [02JAN21] - Atlas Air 747-422 N480MC - Miami Dolphins to Buffalo

Been looking forward to this one since September, but of course clouds had to ruin it in typical Upstate NY Winter fashion.

f/6.3 1/250 ISO500 @ 220 mm


Conference Championships [23JAN21] - Delta A330-323 N815NW - Buffalo to Kansas City Chiefs

Clouds threatening to ruin all my shots again, so I had to pull out some super aggressive editing.

f/8 1/640 ISO160 @ 360 mm


Conference Championships [23JAN21] - Delta A330-223 N861NW - Buffalo to Kansas City Chiefs

The day I get out of this awful climate will be a happy one.

f/8 1/800 ISO160 @ 320 mm

You’re lucky the Bills lasted so long so you could catch some Charters.

Raiders only got to Week 17.

Likewise Mason, nice meeting you this year. And yes, you need to post more.

I mean that’s like two extra weeks, not a huge deal.
