A View from the Top

By The Flying Pinto

Here is my view of the meteorite crater in Arizona, seen from the flight deck.



  1. I'm psyched that you posted this! I wanted to see it on my spring break trip to Arizona, but had to skip it because it was going to be an 80-mile detour round trip.

    Hey Jamie…lol…I wish it was a little clearer for you! It was great to see from the plane, it looked better than the pic came out.

    Could have rolled the window open a bit! heeh… Google Earth Jamie… google earth (or maps) 😀

  4. Cool pic! …even if I was a little disapointed: I though it was volcano-related! 😛

    that could have been a puzzle picture. I don't know if I could have guessed it.
    It's a nice big hole that reminds me of how little we are in the big universe surrounding us.

  7. Excellent Blog – and I enjoy dropping by to read it.

    All the best from this side of the "Pond" and from the flightdecks of the Speedbirds.
