Boeing Fly-over

The valley where I live is host to one of the PGA tour games, the Boeing Classic, at our local ‘members only’ golf course the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. It’s a huge event, though most of us locals don’t attend – it’s quite exclusive. We do, however, get to take part in the annual ‘Boeing Fly-over’ that kicks off the tournament.

Since we live fairly far from an airport and close to a high elevation mountain range, The Cascades, we rarely see jets except as tiny specks high above. They are barely audible. So it’s an occasion to see and hear each year’s chosen full-sized jet flying East across the valley and banking a huge turn near Mt. Si to head back West to Boeing field in Seattle. We call and text each other when it’s on its way and run outside to catch the moment. A fun tradition…

    i love it – and I like all the angles in the photos, and the way the wires are incorporated into the image..

    • My coworker took a video instead of still shots, which caught the loop more vividly, but I kind of liked the multiple angle thing too, especially how the wires interacted with the plane in the images. I’m glad you saw that too. It’s funny how we often seem to ‘get’ each other’s eye for things. Hope you’re healing well!
