    Question Shooting out the airplane window - what've you got?

    Taking artsy fartsy photos out of an airplane window is quite possibly the most cliche thing you can do with a camera. That said, I find these types of pictures to be oddly compelling, and I know everyone has a collection of them lying around.

    So, what have you, maggots? You are a well-traveled bunch - let's see how much of the world we can cover.

    I'll start:

    De-icing in Manchester, NH:



    Landing at Chicago Midway:

    Yeah - gotta love the combination of shitty Antonov Air Conditioning and uber-Humid air.

    To be fair the Boeing 737 that took me from Cancun to DC had fog coming out of the AC Ducts as well, just not nearly as much nor for nearly as long. That Cubana Jet got so foggy that you could not see across the aisle after 2 minutes... just like a 70's disco. I started mumbling "Ah, ah, ah, ah Stayin' Alive!" and the guy next to me choked on his free Havana Club rum (yes, served as we were taxiing.)

    Gotta ask, Tipp how did you end up in Cuba?
    (FYI not a fed, just find the ban on traveling there intriguing and rather pointless considering all of the other horrid countries US citizens can travel to)

    So that was just moisture filling the plane? Was any mention made of it after it started happening by the crew or did they just roll with it and let you figure it out on your own?

    I looked at this three times before I figured out that the windows were not covered with an opaque green film. Pretty cool image.
