The Airbus!!

We dropped Blake off at school yesterday & were surprised to see 5 news helicopters hovering overhead. They were waiting for the Airbus to make it's way to Chicago. It had a scheduled landing of 12:50 pm, so my husband & I drove to find a great spot to sit & watch it come in. We were listening to the radio, when they announced that the Airbus had landed at 12:35 pm-EARLY!! So we missed the landing-but as we were driving in front of the airport-you could see it's tail above all of the buildings at the airport. We got some great views of the plane at the gate--but you couldn't see immense wing span due to the fact that there was a building in front of it. I did catch a couple of pictures--not nearly as impressive as it would have been flying right over head!!
