Views from the Sky from DTW to CLT

9 posts in this topic

I flew back to Charlotte today from Los Angles via Detroit and grabbed these snapshots.. I tried to get some of the sprawl of southern California and flying into Detroit before daylight, but they didn't turn out very well....

The sun is rising as we approach DTW

Too bad you can't see the Detroit ones better. Judging by the grid pattern, I would guess you were somewhere over Wayne, Westland, or Dearborn Heights. Most of the land near the airport is not as developed as in the photos.

I wish the nightime pictures had turned out better as well. I took several over Detroit and Los Angeles, they looked good on my viewscreen, but after I got them on the PC the quality was much poorer than I first believed. I was using a fairly inexpensive Olympus digital camera.

I do want to try for some nightime shots like this again!

I flew into DTW from Savannah via Charlotte and got the best view I have ever seen. We flew in so that the right side of the plane was pointing toward the skyline. It was Labor Day weekend, the day of the Grand Prix. Beautiful!

You got quite a few great aerials out of this! I can't get enough of photos taken from plane windows, especially of my hometown, so thanks very much for posting these! :wub:
