Looking up the other direction.

Looking west from FLL. This is the normal flight path into the southeast winds.

Two of my favorite things: airplanes and motorcycles.

Which runway were you at?

I flew into that airport from the Bahamas last year.  What a cluster f**k customs was that day.  Eek.  Better from your vantage point.

@builderbob - because you have interest in these things - here's a slightly earlier model plane (than the F-15 above) that I had the pleasure to fly in.  Fantastic experience.  Do it if you ever have the chance - wind in your face in an open cockpit.

Bit like riding a motorbike - but in the sky! 😁

Yeah. I fly A/V parts for cruise ships into Freeport occasionally. Sometimes it can be downright painful. 😕

Cool!  Pilot or passenger?  Love the vintage tailwheel biplanes.

@builderbob - Only a passenger I'm afraid.  Getting a pilots licence was always a dream for me that never eventuated as other things in life managed to get in the way.  Can't complain, being a passenger is still  a lot of fun! 😁  Cheers.

Well, don't completely dismiss achieving that goal.  I didn't get mine until last year.  I was 64.  Bucket list.
