I was recently at Dallas Love Field to help Southwest Airlines celebrate the end of the Wright Amendment (my story on that for AirwaysNews.com here). Virgin America also celebrated its move from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Love Field, so I decided to hop across the hall for their festivities. Below is a photo I snapped in the Virgin America gate area. Enjoy!

I’m a big fan of the different Southwest Airlines liveries. And as someone who flies out of Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport, I get to see a lot of them. Below is a shot I took in October 2009 when the Shamu plane was at the gate. Enjoy!

Back in November 2009, I got to go back to my old stomping grounds in Phoenix, Arizona. While I was waiting for my flight home, Southwest Airlines’ New Mexico liveried jet pulled up to the gate. Enjoy!

On Nov. 3, 2008, four new runways — at Washington Dulles, Hartsfield Jackson, Lambert St. Louis and Seattle-Tacoma airports — opened. I got to hang out with acting FAA Administrator Bobby Sturgell at the opening of the fourth Dulles runway. As part of that event, a group of us got to go up in the Dulles tower, where I was able to snap this shot of a Southwest Airlines jet on the runway.  Enjoy!
