Air France A380 IAD-CDG
A lovely 13L departure, which more or less goes over my house at about 800 feet.
And this annoying bugger was flying around town for a few hours the other day. It's registered to the Dept. of Homeland Security. No idea why it was here.

You are right ..... The bird was far. I may have one or two shots of her most of the shots were ruined by heat. Heat from the APUs or exhaust vents on the buildings. I wish I could have given you guys an earlier heads up but I was busy painting.
And yea, 13R departures are no good from home, unless they make an immediate northerly turn.
The different between 13R and 13L departure is so clear, just like at China Air Cargo from the post above. 13L is so much better for me here.
Simply beautiful shots!
The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!
