Here in Tampa I'm right next to the airport so I can watch planes land all day. Since the setting sun against the clouds gave me a great backdrop, I thought a big jet in the right place would look great.
When I was a kid - growing up in Los Angeles - the family would - from time to time - travel to Los Angeles International Airport on a Sunday afternoon. We'd park on a road at the end of the runway and we'd watch the jets land. Many other families did the same thing. Vendors sold peanut brittle. It was a nice family experience.
