    I've never seen such a large airport. Glad you included part of the wing as contrast to the 'tiny' planes. Congrats.

    Congratulations. It's amazing just how many flights are docked there. I wonder how many take off in an hour?

    Thank you all for your votes and comments. I still love every minute of flying even though I can't afford to fly myself anymore.
Robert - thanks. It was early p.m. The tint was due to the pp where I had to rebuild the runway to reduce the effect of one hugs smudge on the window. It was larger but similar to the one at the top left which I left alone. Maybe I can bill the airport for all the work it took to repair their pavement!
John - appreciated - yes we got back before the real panic set in.
NEAT - Good to hear, I was amazed at how well Atlanta operated and when we took off I was even more amazed to realize how many planes were going through there.
Unfortunately our next stop was Toronto which is one of the worst places to transfer flights. They force you to leave the secure area and you need to go through the security check all over again. They claim to do this because they don't feel that other airport security screening is as good as theirs! This from Toronto, which will go down in history for their inability to clear snow from their streets and their need to call in the army to help! If they ever update the airport they might want to remember that in Canada we get white stuff every winter hahaha

    Great overview. Those planes on the ground look like toys.

    I thought Atlanta Airport was one of the best airports we had been to in America. I love this perspective, itís my top pick.

    Its not my airport but I still get a frisson of excitement to think I'm nearly home.

    A busy airport indeed. The pinkish cast suggests an early morning or evening shot (?).
