Airbus A300F4-600 (N174UP)

Submitted

Lifting away from RTIA's runway 16R at 6:22 AM in wonderful early morning sunlight, this Worldport-bound UPS A306 (N174UP) came right past my position on Lima taxiway and rotated just at the perfect moment at the start of its RNO-SDF flight.

If I'd been any closer the wing would have passed right over my head as it went by. It was an awesome experience to be standing halfway down 16R at the Lima intersection snapping this heavy Bus coming right at me full speed on its "D" roll. (I can't wait to do it again ... lol).

Are you in an airport vehicle Gary or do you have one of those big umbrellas and a cooler beside you? Great shot, feel the energy as they thunder by!

Mark S., Greg, Mark T., Roy, Dave, Christoff, and Dwight >> TYVM to each of you for your comments. They are very much appreciated. Christoff ... Hello, and many Thanks for your kind words. :-) Mark T. ... (Big grin) Airport vehicle with a blinking yellow light bar on top. It was neat; the short segment of Lima taxiway (just the part between the active parallels) was (sort of) "reserved" for me for awhile. And BTW, the umbrella, folding beach chair, and cooler are what I use when I'm on the rooftop location ... (another grin).
