It seems like forever since I posted any pictures. I guess it's been a busy time at work so I haven't had the opportunity. No matter, I do have a few to share. These first 2 were taken as we sat in the departure line at JFK. The next 2 were taken in the last mile of the Potomac River arrival into DCA. This was the first time that I hadn't landed Runway 19 out of the River Visual Arrival and we landed over the Pentagon.

Have you got winglets now or the 145 or did I miss something ? New Embraer type perhaps?? :D

These were taken the next day as we left. The second picture of the -145 was the aircraft we took out (on the hard stand if it doesn't load in the same order). The aircraft was online for only 14 days after it's delivery from Brazil and we were flying it's 20 revenue flight. Nothing flies nicer than a brand new airplane. :) The rest of my Mexico trips were in the dark so I couldn't take any pictures. Actually with the days getting shorter it seems most flights are at night. :) Oh well. Not much but I hope you find these few interesting...

It's the EMB-145XR which we are the only operator of. It has a central fuel tank for an extra 45 minutes of flight time as well as winglets to boost the range a bit more.

Spotter hat on here I'm afraid, but the 2nd plane in that sequence isn't an XR, and according to my info is one of the older 145s in the fleet? (cn 248)

I was pointing towards the second picture of the EMB-145, not the second picture. :) N11194 You can see the XR's fuselage strakes under the engine.

The N-number is visible in the picture for what it's worth. You can see how clean it is/was by looking into the nose wheelwell.

I believe Click is one of the 2 new LLC that recently started up in Mexico. I guess a few of the worlds old Fokker's have found homes here. I don't think AeroLitoral flies their EMB-145's into the US as I've only seen their Saab 340's. I think the livery looks real sharp.

Great shots! How do you make those aerial shots? Whenever I try to make pictures while in flight they end up unsharp and washed up.

Thanks for the kudos guys. :D

Do you mean when shooting through a window? It could be that the camera is having trouble focusing as it's doing so on the window and not the view outside. Clean the glass or change modes in the camera to help with that. As for the washed up, if there is any moisture in the air the pictures will show a blue tint. Use the internal white balance or an editing software that can remove it. I was lucky with my above pictures as the air was very dry. I don't know if that helped or not.

Nice shots, especially the one heading over the pentagon. We went to Washington in 2000 and we got off the subway at the Petagon, took a wrong turning and were heading towards too security guys with sidearms. OOps. Great pics though! Amazing.
