I did get a grin at the small irony of the Fed Ex van passing by just as I was snapping the departure series of this UPS heavy.

Yeah, indeed, good timing.

Another great pic, Gary. It's amazing what "perspective" in a photo does to one. This being 16R, I would expect to see 16L to the left of the pic, but it's nowhere to be seen. I went onto Google Maps (Satellite View) to have a look-see, and I think that confused me even more. In this snap of yours, there seems to be very little real estate to the left of this runway, yet plenty on the right.
Would that be Rattlesnake just off shot on the far left, or do I have it wrong?

Hi, Gavin. Thanks. Viv >> Thanks. And to answer your comment .... The small portion of mountain visible at the left center edge is the "start' of the Snake. That other hill in the pic is known as Huffaker Hills Park. There is a little gazebo on it (I can see it because I know where to look, but you won't be able to spot it in this pic). There is a good view from the park, but it is nowhere as high as Rattlesnake plus it is farther away from the airport so planes, whether departing or arriving, are higher as they fly past the park. The Southwest in this pic is taxiing north on Bravo; Alpha is to the right of it. The reason you cannot see 16L-34R is because it is 2000 feet shorter than 16R-34L and the "short" end is at the 34R end ... and I was trying to get the SW in the shot so I was "aiming" at 16R and at the taxiways to the right of 16R. To help "orient" you on Google, the "close up" vehicles are passing by on Mill St. The area I am snapping from is a city-owned disposal site located on the south bank of the Truckee River. It is populated by many homeless persons. After an unsettling encounter I had there at dawn about three years ago, I still go there at night and also during daylight hours, but now I am armed whenever I go -- especially at night because it is pitch dark, there is no emergency vehicle access to that area, and it is quite isolated. By the time "assistance' could get to that area, the scene would be deserted.

Nice shot Gary! Now I'm orientated. You take care up there.
