Default Not Paying Attention

Was at the airport earlier today and caught this United ERJ on final approach to Rwy 27 (about 0.5 miles from touchdown).



When I was post processing the image, I noticed the Capt'n! I imagine the First Officer was landing the aircraft. But you'd think he'd be focused on the landing rather than waving to a photographer on the ground! BTW, cross winds were fairly high today and many aircraft were crabbing as they approached.

I hope the first officer was landing the plane. It is weird to see a United Airlines plane wearing the Continental colors and logo.

Great shot especially of the pilot. He's well-lit, too.

Here's one more from the same afternoon...many passengers peering out the windows, but at least there is no sign of the Capt'n waving to on-lookers!
