Ready For Departure

Photo 19:  Ready For Departure
Tuesday through Friday flew by and now on June 16th, 2000 at 10:00am it was time for us to go. Huge crowds gathered on the tarmac to watch us depart as we cranked all engines with the usual flames and smoke. As seen in the top photo, we received several water salutes from Port Authority Fire trucks as we taxied out. British Airways invited us to drop by for a photo opportunity with the Concorde, so we had one more stop to make. Photo Credit: Lawrence Feir Please Click On Image For A Closer Look!
