a is for airport


if you click on this photo to enlarge it, you can see icicles hanging off of the planes wings!


so check it out, I happen to have republic airport in my very own backyard! if I wasn't participating in today's abc wednesday meme, I might not have ventured over to new highway where I was able to spy this nice looking plane parked not too far from the runway. you can also see the control tower in the background.
if you'd like to see other representations of the letter a, thanks to mrs. nesbitt, you may go here.

Beautiful picture of the airport, Lily.
I imagine the plane ready to take off in that bright sky towards fantastic lands.

What a great photo! Not only the icicles on the plane wing, but the light and color.

Can airplanes fly with icycles on their wings ?

I like your picture a lot! I grew up with a little airport behind our house. It was so fun to watch planes take off and land!

Gorgeous photo! I love the orange in the sky.

When we go to Dave & Busters, we love to watch the planes sail over our head. (For those not in the area, D&B is right next to this airport).

The icicles on the wings are cool (literally!). Nice photo, and great idea for the letter A.

We go for brunch to the 56th Fighter Squadron - isn't that at Republic Airport or am I wrong? It's right off Rte 110... :)
