What city am I flying over?

Always fun to fly over a city at an altitude that it is reasonably photogenic. I had just that opportunity a couple weeks back and snapped these shots, one of the airport and one of the downtown area. Can you identify the city? Bonus points if you can figure out where I was headed when the pictures were taken.

Oh, and was it the airport or the skyline that gave it away for you?

  1. Took me a couple of seconds to get PHL because it was “upside down” to the way I normally picture it. 🙂

  2. Well, you all got the answer to the “where” correct. It is Philly. But no one got the “why” part. I was on a flight from RSW-EWR, coming home from Spring Training this past March.

    I’ve got a bunch of shots like this and I’ll post more in the coming weeks….
