Taxiing Through Clouds (No Kidding)

Recommended Posts

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting recreation of real life Braniff flight of  DC-8-62's arrival at KCOS City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport located 6 miles  southeast of Colorado Springs, Colorado that is the second busiest commercial service airport in the state

Seconds before touchdown on runway 35R after two circles waiting for turn to land due to heavy commuter traffic between KCOS and KDEN




Exciting tire smoke still kept spewing while front landing gear was gliding down slowly in most graceful manner (notice clouds on ground level in background


Front landing gear finally making runway contact


Braking down with marvelous view of mountains of May Peak and Kineo Mountain


Exiting from runway 35R into taxiway


Entering into clouds at ground level during taxi to gate


Taxiing through middle of cloud on ground level to gate


Emerging out of clouds


Still on long taxi with background of clouds


Approaching gate with background of same mountains


Thank you for viewing.  Stay tuned for next exciting flight!!

Those are not clouds. Those are "areas of locally reduced visibility".
