I wish I had a camera.

How many times have you said that to yourself?

Last night was one of those nights. There was an amazing strong thunderstorm that passed through Chicago last night around 7:30 P.M. Right after it passed through, there was an amazing scene that I feel fortunate enough to witness. Picture this…dark clouds on the right, orange sky on the left, double rainbow in the middle, the airport lights on full bright, and propagating lightning surrounding the whole scene. (that’s where the lightning appears to crawl through the sky). Yeah, words definitely don’t do it justice. It was simply amazing. And all I could think of, was “Man, I wish I had my camera!”

So for today’s trip, I bring my camera. And lucky enough for me, there was this beautiful turbine converted DC3 sitting on the ramp. Of course, my camera memory card was almost confiscated during an ugly incident with a customs official that was clearing this aircraft but that is a different story….so enjoy the photo because I went through a lot to get it.

I think my camera is now officially part of my flight kit. Fly Safe.
