"You're Now Free to Move About the Country"

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 14 February 2012 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

View while sitting outside on the wing of a Southwest Airlines airplane. The airline stewardess told me to get back in the plane after I threw open the emergency door. I asked her if I could just get this one shot and then slide down the inflatable chute. She only agreed with the former.

Happy Silly Tuesday!

We were at the gate in Tampa, Florida waiting to take off for Chicago, Illinois. Photo captured November 20, 2011.

i'd be more careful with this airline, though, as they have been trying hard to get a very peculiar reputation lately ... ;-))
