McDonnell Douglas DC-10 (N68053)


"Chayne," Fed Ex's N68053, is caught in this departure shot as it climbs south away from Reno Tahoe International to begin the return leg of the daily KMEM-KRNO-KMEM early AM roundtrip flight.

Dave, RWB, Mark T., Leland, Darryl, and Bill ... Thanks for your comments and complis. And another thanks to each of you for viewing my pics. You all do your spotting at super busy airports (Boston, Toronto, KDEN, KSAT, Paine and Boeing Field) that see a huge variety of airlines ... and of aircraft ... so viewing my pics of the same aircraft (737s, 757s, 320s, 306s, Dash 8s, and a few MD models) with the same airline paint on them is probably a bit ho-hum for you guys. So I really appreciate that you viewed my snaps and that you took a moment to pass along a comment. TYVVM.
Isaac Vogelzang
Wow! Great catch! 5***** every single time!
Mark Thomas
I don't have a background like that in Toronto!! And that just adds to the majesty of that FEDEX tri-holer climbing out of Reno! I love this shot.

Thanks again, Mark. And to Isaac .. Hello and my sincere Thanks to you for all of your recent comments. IMHO, the whole purpose of taking pictures is so that others can view them. For that reason, I am very selective when it comes to posting a picture in my folder. I don't photobomb the gallery; instead, I usually post just one shot a day (occasionally, two) and no more than 7 in a week. For me, it is not about how many photos I can post, it is about how many aviation photo fans are interested in viewing the ones I DO post. So Isaac, I am very grateful to you and to all the others for being one of those viewers.

Wow! 5 *'s!
