Today, while sitting in my hotel room situated under a flight path to a runway at the busy main airport, I reviewed the pictures I recently took while on a walk in my local neighbourhood where there's a smaller airport . These photos were taken just minutes apart. Smaller does not mean less busy. In fact Canada, with it's small population, has the second highest number of airports and flight schools in the world. Maybe it's because there's lots of empty space??
As I shot these I wondered if the pilots above me could see each other. I know they can talk over their radios. I stood there awhile and reflected.
It must be an exhilarating feeling to be in control of one's flight.

Very nice photos. I can see from your skies that it is so busy!

now these fit the song, off we go into the wild blue younder. lovely sky and teeny weeny helicopter and planes.

I especially like the blue sky in your first photo, but all of them are neat. Canada probably has so many planes and helicopters since it is so large.

Love the sky shots. That chopper looks like a big bug. Makes sense that you would have a lot of planes with so much unoccupied ground space.
