Very nice framing. I like how you captured the wheels but you still managed to get the airline name in their two. Great timing and great framing.

How many planes do you shoot on an average outting?

I usually take from ten to fifteen different airplanes depending on the time of day. DFW airport has seven active runways but I only photograph the approach end traffic at 18R and 13R; mainly because they are closest to my house. DFW airport is extremely photographer friendly.

Thanks for the info and if you ever make it to Washington D.C. Regan National Airport is very photographic friendly. Their is a park off the DC end of the airport that has the planes fly directly over you as they land when they come in from Georgetown Approach as opposed to the Wilson Bridge Approach (and take off over you if they are going the opposite way). Well worth spending several hours. You can also photograph some smaller dinner cruise type ships, smaller boats, jet skis and ducks (the kind that run int hr water and on land not the animal) as well from Graverly Park.
