    Boeing 737 inbound...

    Fortunately for me, I had my camera with me in my car, and as I was leaving work, I noticed several aircraft lined up on approach into our airport. So, I drove over to where I would be pretty much under the flight path and snapped a few pictures...hope you enjoy

    Great pics. I don't think I've seen that folded wing-tip before.

    Thanks You see the winglets a lot on the 737 these days, especially with Southwest airlines. They help reduce lift induced drag on the wing. They've only been around for about 15 years, but it seems like a newer thing

    It was probably no more than around 100 feet or so above me when I took that shot...I found a nice little spot that puts me directly under the flight path
