As promised, here is part 2 of my Plane Spotting photos from Anchorage.   After 14 consecutive hours (6:30a-9:00p)  spent at the observation areas on day 2, I came away with a wide variety of images thanks in part to a changing weather pattern as well as a surprise visit (at least to me) by Boeing’s Dream Lifter 747.   Below are some of my favorite shots as I sort through nearly 1200 shots taken on day 2.  More to come tomorrow.

Oh, if you’re wondering what the Moose pic has to do with Plane Spotting, he spent about 4-5 hours within 20-30 yards of me napping and snacking while I was taking pictures.
