Sometimes the scenery during takeoff demands that FAA regulations about Portable Electronic Devices be broken.
Note (1/5/05): I fixed the color on a few of these today, which is why some look drastically better than others here.
At some point I may get to them all.
US Airways Terminal during taxi to the runway
The airport's main control tower
Downtown Camden and the Delaware River to the north
With the Betsy Ross Bridge in the background
The Ben Franklin Bridge, Delaware River and Interstate 95. Within the city, much can be seen including
Society Hill Towers, The US Customs House, Independence Mall, Penn's Landing, and the Old City and Society Hillneighborhoods.
Washington Square and Market East neighborhoods, including the new St. James apartments (center)
Philadelphia's stunning skyscraper core: The Market West neighboorhood
The same, with City Hall and the Pennsylvania Convention Center on the right
All of Center City except its most eastern neighborhoods (Old City and Society Hill), and Lower North Philadelphia
Art Museum and surrounding area: I76 and the Schuylkill, and half of Eastern State Penitentiary at the upper right
A mile or so further west on I76.
