KORD Spotting

Recommended Posts

I went spotting at KORD today. Sadly, the security restrictions and local geography do not allow for airfield action shots, but I was able to take some on short final. Here they are - IMG_4169.JPGIMG_4171.JPGIMG_4172.JPGIMG_4186.JPGIMG_4188.JPGIMG_4236.JPGIMG_4243.JPGIMG_4246.JPGIMG_4250.JPGIMG_4255.JPGThe rest can be viewed here - http://picasaweb.google.com/102290390373829549121/Spotting942010#Enjoy!Regards,Kevin Burns

Hey Kevin,Yeah it's pretty cool living so close,The Freight Dogs usually start landing around 4am,It's neat to see an UPS MD-11 or a FedEx MD/DC-10 coming in so slow almost hovering as I'm walking my Dog.Or hear the whine of The big Trent Rolls Royce engines on final as they jockey the Turbines up/down for power to hold glidescope.Also get to see The Prez"Obama" fly over in Marine 1 really low when he's in town which is pretty cool also!!Great shots bud!!Cheers!

Yep! Usually when I am in transit to school I will hear an Fedex MD-11 turning to intercept the localizer if the winds are from the northeast. Many of the aircraft photographed herein had a very slow ground speed on final because there was almost a direct headwind of almost 20 knots. It's amazing to see a 772, 744, or MD11 just float onto the runway at that slow speed..

Hello(!),Just to say many thanks for the pics etc. I was in OHare last November and really enjoyed flying in and out of there. Although the international terminal isn't that great the domestic terminals are really nice and I managed to take a few flights to Boston and Minneapolis and Detroit. My relatives all thought I was nuts flying around the place but I had a pretty hood time!Many thanks,Pierre
