Airplanes….I love airplanes….

One of the things that he and I have in common is our love and fascination with airplanes. Perhaps you don’t know, but he attended Indian Hills in Ottumwa for airplane mechanics and he actually left me while we were dating for a job in Louisiana to work on helicopters for PHI.

Before 9/11 and TSA, we used to stop at airports and watch planes take off…we used to sit at the blue lights at the Des Moines airport near the runway…everyone else was making out…we were watching planes take off and land. one visit to Chicago, we found an abandoned parking lot near the O’hare airport and watched them take off. We opened the sunroof and took pictures…

While waiting for our plane in Rome…we had an awesome view…it was very exciting to see planes from different countries and different airlines than I’ve seen before…here are some pics.

  1. That is something the four of us have in common. 🙂 We used to do that, too. Around Midway there were some great places to watch planes and those were practically landing on us. Fun times. There is a little airport out in the boondocks that we used to go and watch the planes, jumpers, and sailplanes. Those were fun days. It was fun to see your pictures.
