Fall 2009, FedEx Corp. is scheduled to open a $350 million sorting hub at Greensboro's Piedmont Triad International Airport. Hopefully, the economic benefits will outweigh the environmental impact. Since the plan became known in 1998, residents have been extremely concerned about noise pollution within in the flight path. The impending FedEx hub became a reality to us the other evening as we were driving along Bryan Boulevard and this FedEx plane was landing.
We offer this photo as our Sky Watch Friday and are reminded of Susie of Arabia who always assures her blog visitors that she doesn't take highway shots while driving. Mr. GDP was in the driver's seat while Mrs. GDP snapped this photo through the car windshield.
On our Sky Watch blog tour last Friday, we read that a woman who lives near a military base has helicopters so close to her house that she waves to the pilots from balcony. We weren't that close, but we were close! The beauty of always having a camera in tow is the opportunity to catch these in-the-moment shots!
