Boeing 727-200 (N727US)

Submitted

A USA Jet B722 (N727US) flares out as it is about to touch the mains to the runway 16R concrete and finish a KLRD-KRNO trip. I was as close to the edge of 16R as I could be without standing in front of (and possibly blocking) one of the Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) units that are visible in the foreground of this click.

The JUS freighter was arriving from Laredo to deliver a cargo shipment to Tesla.

Thanks to both of you. And Greg, I just noticed you have some new pics up. I'll scope 'em out in about ten minutes. (Wave)

LOL, they use an in-efficient aircraft that use lots of fuel and pollute the air to deliver something that's supposed to stop and end pollution!
Jakeb Claridge
Yeah, probably shouldn't block the PAPI!
