Back in November 2007, I took at trip to Chicago O’Hare International Airport. At the time, construction on runway 9L/27R was under way. I got the full behind-the-scenes tour, complete with a stroll on said runway. I also got the chance to take the photos below, of a Northwest Airlines cargo Boeing 747. Enjoy!

Back in November 2007, I took a trip to Chicago O’Hare to take an up-close-and-personal tour of the O’Hare Modernization Project, which included the construction of the Runway 9L/27R.  s part of that, I got to go into areas usually not open to the public.  In the shot below, we were over near the old cargo area, which was going to be moved to accommodate the new runway.  Enjoy!
