Thanks. That wasn't Florida. That was...a bit north of the Carribean.

Cool shots, Kevin! Looks scary :o
Ivan hasn't hit Floirda, it IS HITTING Florida right now!!! :-lol I'm getting slammed by rain right now, winds coming late tonight...

Ouch. You might want to evacuate.

Too late! I tried to go up to my plane yesterday, to secure the hangar and what have you. Didn't even get to the interstate, before the grid-lock was so bad, I turned around.
So... stuck here. It's getting pretty gnarly outside right now, power will probably go out anytime soon. We have already had tornadoes touch down the next county over.

great shots but theres something nagging at me, yu wouldn't use reverse thrust when u only have one engine or 2 on a 744, and if you have most of your engines gone you wouldn't use flaps.

Thanks. Well, I didn't know that, thanks for telling me. Besides, I needed to reduce speed, so I dropped the flaps, and I usually use the reverse thrust.

I'm not in the hurricane area, I'm up in New Jersey.

I don't get the narration, but I like the fireworks. :-lol

Cool shots Kevin. Have you tried posting some of your shots at AirDisasters.com? j/k

Nice shots and cool plane. I think you managed to miss the main bit of the Hurricane though - winds weren't awfully high there. They've been far higher across here recently. :s

What's a 747-400C, Kevin?
Nice fireworks though. And thanks for not posting 50 shots from the cockpit view, although 20 shots of the head-on view is almost as bad... :) More real world shots from you, please. They were more enjoyable. :)
09-16-2004, 01:26 PM
Thanks. The 400C is the Combi.

Sorry, Phil, can't get any more real world shots. I'm not flying (I'm still in 10th grade, you know).
