Finding moose to photograph last week in Alaska was difficult so on a couple of occasions we watched cargo planes taking off and landing from Ted Stevens International Airport. The beauty of this is that the runway parallels the road, there is only a cyclone fence that separates the runway from the roadway and a convenient embankment across the road that allows for viewing the aircraft as they take off without the fence blocking the view. It was a very fun diversion from the frustration of not finding moose to photograph. This airport is a major air cargo hub, equidistant from major cities like New York and Tokyo so there were lots of opportunities to photograph lots if different cargo planes, including this one from FedEx. The stormy skies and the gorgeous mountains framed this FedEx cargo plane as it took off to deliver its packages.
