Some fun airplane photos from the past week.

A huge Airbus A380 double-decker airliner 7.2 miles above Boston, a Japan Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner gliding into Boston, and another Japan Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner landing with the Boston skyline in the background, were just some of the fun snaps I took this week.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner that suffered a battery fire in a cargo-hold in January continues to sit  just a few hundred yards away from the where the original incident occurred. All of its Japan Airlines markings have been covered with large white tape and temporary structures are nestled against the jet, forming what appears to be a veritable testing lab.

I photographed a Japan Airlines Dreamliner 787 that was experiencing a fuel leak today, one day after a different JAL Dreamliner 787 had a small fire in its cargo belly. Here are my photos as Massport firefighters, officials and a crew from CleanHarbors, work to contain and then clean up the fuel. Stay tuned for any further details on this incident at

I photographed smoke coming out of the cargo hold today as Massport firefighters, with a backup from the Boston Fire department, first investigated and then doused the morning fire. See my photos below of today’s event and also my photos from when the jet experienced happier times at Logan, first in Boeing colors, and then the inaugural flight from Japan. Also check for any updates on the cause, etc.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner with Japan Airlines colors and livery markings made it’s inaugural flight from Japan to Boston today. On this foggy day, I snapped photos and captured audio from the Logan air traffic control tower. Here is my slideshow, along with a photo. Please click the words JapanAirlinesBoston link in asterisks, not the photo. Thank you.

Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Boston Logan airport tower welcomes inaugural Japan Airlines 787 Dreamliner

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner leaves Boston this morning after a 25 hour visit ahead of it’s inaugural U.S service from Boston to Japan, which begins in April. Photographically speaking, there was lots of “heat haze” that did weird things to the plane when it was over the runway. When it climbed high into the sky, the heat haze vanished. Shot with a Canon 800mm and a 1.4 teleconverter. Given the heat haze problems I faced, I think I will choose to not use the 1.4 teleconverter on similar future endeavors.

The Dreamliner arrived a little after 9am Sunday morning, and Massport authorities threw the newest airliner a party. These photos and a small video (link in RED at bottom) show the arrival.
