Tina's Pic Story - Clouds

United 108 in 1984, perhaps over Nebraska
Tina’s Pic Story arrives for the week – Tina kindly supplies the weekly theme and we provide a picture that explains our take on that theme – which this week is Clouds...

This is a scanned view from 1984 on my way home from the L.A. Olympics on a United DC-10. Here is between LAX and Chicago. Only about 100 passengers, two aisles, a seat by the door, no bathroom lines, you could buy something from the bar cart at the bulkhead. It was undoubtedly the best flight ever.

I chose this cloudy view because the ride was so smooth because the clouds were down there - not up here (fewer clouds = better ride).  With the Pentax on hand all those years ago, I captured a frame that meets the weekly theme in 2012. Thanks for the memories :)

Those were the good old days of flying, not like it is now. I used to fly between Anchorage and Atlanta in the mid eighties and it was always pleasant. Love those clouds.
