I took this shot at the Pittsburgh International Airport several years ago before airport security as we know it existed. The airport had an observation deck that anyone could could go out on and watch the planes take off and land. The night we got there the deck was closed and we had to get special permission to go out and take a few photographs. Today that would be unheard of, so this photo is quite unique. I took this photo with a Nikon FE camera with Ilford HP5 film running at 400 asa, not sure about the lens. I processed and printed this photo in my kitchen as well. I took several shots and this was the best of the bunch.
