Spotting ATL 8/1/18 Another rainy day...

Hello IFC,
Yesterday I had a 2 hour layover in Atlanta so I stopped in a Sky Club in Concourse A. It was raining all day, so I was able to get a some shots through the windows and enjoy the view. If you dislike Delta, go ahead and leave now because, well, it’s Atlanta I guess…
An MD-90 taxiing in between concourse T and A

A Delta 737-900ER pushing back for Indianapolis, I think
DL%20739

A United ERJ-175 looking out of place, both in size and airline
UA%20E175

A big old Delta 757-200, my favorite type of aircraft

Yet another Delta A319 “baby bus”, a rare catch in ATL (usually at other Delta hubs)

An ancient MD-88 flexing its ancient (but venerable) JT8Ds

A frenzy of Mad Dogs (MD-88s) scrambling to get out of ATL before more thunderstorms roll in

Hope you enjoyed my photos! Please let me know what you think!
Cheers!

I like how the Dynasty (China Airlines) B744F casually photobombs the Maddog population. Great Pics overall. Rain makes for some pretty great photos.

Say spot… Just one more time. Haha

Great pictures, being from the other side of the pond, I didn’t realise Delta still operated so many MD88!

Nice photos! I like how Delta dominates the airport, and then the lone United 😂

Btw, by Canon Mark ii, did you mean the 5D Mark ii, 6D Mark ii, or the 7D mark ii?
