A few weeks back my friend Holly was flying in from Chicago and I took an iPhone snap of her plane.
It was pretty terrible.
I looked at the map (this is from after she landed, but you can imagine where the plane was and saw it headed towards me.
Sure enough, it was headed right for us!
The odds were stacked against me to take a good enough picture. It’s dark and I’m shooting at 400mm f/5.6 pushing the camera to ISO 6400 hand-held at 1/20s. (I did have IS trying to make things better though)
But I did get one OK shot.
You can tell it’s an Alaska Air plane based on the native Alaskan on the tail… but not a whole lot else.
But it’s infinitely better than just three pixels. :-D
