I took these photos on my recent trip to Chicago. The captain was a legend and a really nice chap

The following photos were taken at ISO 3200 and even then the shutter speeds were barely over 1/4. All handheld

The landing was windy, you can tell by the horizon, so a quality image was nigh on impossible

Did they just let you into the cockpit for landing? :topbombing:

Thanks for the POTW award :worship:

Here are a few more from my recent trip to Phoenix. It was quite a bit bumpier on approach, so I found it very difficult to get non-blurry photos. Oh, and there were 3 pilots, so I had a side seat
