November 12, 1995 - American Airlines Flight 1572 a McDonnell McDouglas MD-83 on a domestic scheduled passenger flight between Chicago-Hartford, struck trees and landed short of the runway threshold on landing at Bradley International Airport. There was one injury among the 78 on board. The cause of the crash was determined to be the failure of the crew to properly maintain the required altitude during descent.
The world looks different at night.That, more than anything, continues to drive me toward night photography. I started doing photography with a Kodak 110 film point-and-shoot camera, which was completely incapable of performing satisfying night shots due to its lack of manual exposure control. The night beckoned me. On the very first roll of 35mm film I shot with my trusty Nikon 6006 are some (very bad) long exposures of jet aircraft taking off and landing at Bradley International Airport.
