I attended the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland, in May 2010. I chose to fly on KLM because I knew it would include a stop at its Amsterdam Schophol Airport hub. I love wandering the gates and taking photos of aircraft you don’t normally see in the United States. So please enjoy this snap I took of an Arke Fly Boeing 767-300.

Back in April 2011, I went to Atlanta to do stories on Delta Air Lines and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine. When I worked at Delta, one of my favorite places to hang out was the Delta Flight Museum.  Below is a shot of me sitting in front of the engine of the Spirit of Delta, a Boeing 767. Enjoy!

When I worked at Delta Air Lines, one of my favorite places on the headquarters campus was the Delta Heritage Museum.  I would hang out with the museum curators and do some volunteer writing for them.  One of my last duties before leaving the company was handling media for the retirement of The Spirit of Delta, a Boeing 767 bought by the company’s employees in 1982.  The jet was going make its permanent home in the museum. 

Alas, I had left by the time the plane arrived.  ut during a visit to Atlanta in April 2011, I had a chance to visit the museum and take a tour of the Spirit of Delta.  Enjoy!

One of my last duties before leaving Delta Air Lines was working on the events surrounding the retirement of The Spirit of Delta, a Boeing 767 bough by the airline’s employees, retirees, family and friends in 1982.  I left before the plane was brought to its final home at the Delta Heritage Museum at the carrier’s headquarters campus in 2006.  So I was so excited to see it in the museum during a visit to Atlanta in April 2011.  Enjoy!

One of the best things about going to a U.S. airport that’s an international gateway is all the heavy metal from foreign flag carriers.  Back in April 2008, was flying out of Washington Dulles International Airport (my personal favorite) for a trip to Seoul, South Korea.  I arrived early on purpose, because it was around the time when the flag carriers were arriving.  I caught a snap of an Ethopian Airlines Boeing 767 sitting at the gate. Enjoy!
