These pictures were taken by: Den Haag AvW over at the Wired New York forums. It is from a trip in either 2003, or 2004.. Thought they were worthy of the thread:











Lookin good, even with Big John out of the shot ( Look carefully)

"This is from the flight deck. OK, folks, from now for five minutes or so, looks like you will have a wonderful view of downtown Chicago on your left. I will switch the seatbelt sign on, so please be seated and enjoy the view. Thank you for choosing SkyWest and Happy Holidays to you all!" The captain brought our flight UA6828 to Runway 27 Left for smooth landing. I know this is a damn difficult image to capture; but, that will not prevent my passion for photography as it was absolutely beautiful moment.

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.
