    Leg 3: San Francisco to Philadelphia

    Spotting at San Francisco
    [photoid=7648773]

    great to see lots of propliners, which are very rare in China

    [photoid=7574191]

    Airline: US Airways
    Flight US658
    Aircraft: Airbus A320-232
    Reg: N653AW
    Origin: San Francisco International Airport
    Destination: Philadelphia International Airport
    [photoid=7570992]
    over the Colorado Rockies.
    To my surprise, we pass one of the largest airports ever:
    [photoid=7564407]
    [photoid=7583107]
    Busy American Airspace
    [photoid=7583057]
    Sunset somewhere over Ohio, a few minutes before descent.

    Upon arrival, over the PA announcer:
    Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to Honolul......sorry, Philadelphia
    of course, everyone broke out in laughter.

    Spotting at Philadelphia:
    [photoid=7583104]

    Leg 4: Philadelphia to Albany
    There was too much obstruction at the gate and it was night and camera was at low battery, so there was no JP acceptable photos during the flight from Philadelphia to Albany. But I had a nice experience onboard a ERJ-170.

    The End
    Enjoy! Comments Welcome

    That is all for this leg, as my camera battery went low.

    I haven't seen anyone do this yet, so I have made a trip report consisting of only accepted JP photos.
    from one and a half years ago(when I moved from China to the US). Enjoy!
