Flying over and photographing large commercial airports is always a bit stressful. There are transport aircraft with very different characteristics flying in the same space.

Also, it is important to react correctly and swiftly to the instructions given by the controller which is somewhat more difficult in an unknown airspace than over a known area or airport.

The controller of Philadelphia International airport cleared us for transition through his airspace but wanted us to get out as quickly as possible. He therefore gave us a clearance to fly the shortest rout at the highest speed possible. At least, we managed to make this photo.
