Some More Cool Things From The Air

31 January 2010

I went up to Omaha in early January, and I saw some cool things on the trip up and back.

Flying OKC-DFW, we went a bit west. This is Girl Scout Camp E-Ko-Wah, east of Marlow, OK. Erin and Raegan have been to camp here.

Flying into Eppley, we came in over the train yards in Council Bluffs, IA. There was a train turntable.

I do not know what the tall structure is in the right lower center of the picture. It looks like a train could come in under it. A coal loading building?

Coming back from Omaha, we came right down I-35. This is my neighborhood.

The longish lake in the lower left quadrant of the photo is along Air Depot; the right side of the lake is Hefner Road. My neighborhood Apple Valley is the upper right quadrant of the intersection. There is still a lot of snow from the 24 Dec 2009 blizzard.

This is Tinker Air Force Base and Lake Draper. You can see the Northrop Grumman and Boeing buildings on the right side of the picture.

This is downtown Oklahoma City from just northwest. You can see the Ford Center, the Myriad Convention Center, and the National Memorial.

This is Moore, OK.

I almost missed this, since I was focused on looking out the left side of the airplane. Lake Overholser in western Oklahoma City was on the right side of the airplane, and it had ice on it! I barely got a decent shot.

That’s the western part of the Kilpatrick Turnpike in the picture.

After we overflew OKC, I got a better shot of E-Ko-Wah camp.

That’s it!
