737-700 - Real Flight Photos

Recommended Posts

I recently was on one of Southwest 737-700's from Islip, NY (KISP) to Baltimore-Washington (KBWI) and I thought some fellow PMDG pilots might appreciate some of the pictures I took (they are hosted on my own server, and severely cropped for size, so I hope I'm not breaking any rules).Flaps 5 and taxiing away from the gate:http://www.etftiming.com/storage/taxi.jpgLifting off into the murky skies over Islip:http://www.etftiming.com/storage/liftoff.jpgClimbing through 10,000 feet, New York's Fire Island is visible in the distance, along with some boats in the bay:http://www.etftiming.com/storage/climb.jpgFinal approach into KBWI. The weather was extremely gusty (35+ knots), and there was a high wind warning in effect for the Baltimore area! The captain warned us numerous times of the turbulence and had the flight attendants seated very early. The approach was very rough with large excusions in both pitch and bank. The captain set it down hard, carrier-landing style, which seemed like the right thing to do given the unstable air.http://www.etftiming.com/storage/approach.jpghttp://www.etftiming.com/storage/rollout.jpgParking at the gate, we see an identical Southwest 737-700 rolling out on the same runway!http://www.etftiming.com/storage/gate.jpgHope you enjoyed the shots.

Nice shots! I hope to be flying on a winglet version next month. The Southwest planes with winglets just started appearing at my home airport recently.

Glad everyone enjoyed them.I'm always amazed on how flights are so uneventful during significant weather events.In this case, a high wind warning was in effect for KBWI. This is defined as "1-minute average surface winds of 35 kt or greater, or winds gusting to 50 kt or greater that are either expected or observed over land regardless of duration."These winds didn't seem to affect the amount of arrivals and departures at all. I didn't see any commuters or RJs about, but other than that it seemed like any other day!
