Now this is some serious hard wear......

Today as part of my day job i had to spend the day at an airport in Dallas, Texas, (KDAL), where I had to sit was just where all of the traffic was departing after they had attended the Super Bowl here in town last night.
I was even getting to listen on my iPhone app to the Ground and Tower issuing the clearances and taxi instructions. It was really quite hectic, I've not seen so many private jets in my life, most of them were getting a 20 minute hold before being allowed to even enter the taxi way, then they had to join a queue of another 18-20 mins on taxi Alpha for departure. Now I am sure the occupants were just sitting back and enjoying the Krug, Moet or pint of Guinness, so I am sure they didn't mind me taking a few pix to show them burning tons of Jet fuel whilst they were waiting......


At the end of the day I also got to go to the Museum of flight at the airport, where they had some interesting bits and bobs including the lunar landing capsule from Apollo 8 and the cockpit from a 757 which I have posted too......

Up and away again..... heading North, a long day and then home.....
