As of now, this will be the last scheduled passenger 747 service at IAH. Sonair (operated by Atlas) will be discontinuing their Luanda, Angola flights on March 28, 2018.  I caught Giant 100 lifting off runway 15R thanks to the temporary closure of runway 15L. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Midnight rush hour at IAH this morning. In the image, we can see our special guest Quantas, the Love China livery from Air China, and EVA's new livery as they all left at the same time. Additionally, Bahamas Air is on the ramp, both Atlas (SonAir) 747s are at East Cargo and last but not least is an United 737 taxing in. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Catching some of the KLM departures as they will discontinue 747 service to IAH March 23. The closure of runway 15L has given us some new departure angles. Today I captured KLM departing on runway 26L with Emirates decelerating on 26R behind. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First shot of 2018. The Lufthansa 747 retro climbs out of runway 33R on New Year’s Day. The 747 has been substituting for the A380 during the slower holiday season. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

@iah.boi_harold has convinced me to post more of these.  You could call these #SuccessfulFailures or #CloseButNoCigar.  On my last post@of@this type, I settled on #NotPerfectButWhatTheHell. So, what do you think?  Are these worth posting, or should they go in the trash bin?

Oh yeah, Prime Air departing on runway 26L. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What’s up with the boring wing shot?  I suspect many of you are asking this.  Swipe and you’ll see what’s up. 
Similar to the AN-225 airborne shot I landed last year, I was able to get the 747 Super Tanker air to air.  Here it’s turning to land at McClellan Airfield near Sacramento. My flight had just taken off from SMF on the way home to Houston. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First time I recall having captured the liquefied Oryx effect on the fuselage. This, as well as the overall haze on the background, is compliments of the steady rain that can be seen hitting the ramp near the lights. @masterkhussain, we must speak to the push back crew. The 4 point turn they used to finally position the aircraft had me running from end to end of the garage to get in position. 😎
