One of my favorite things about working at an airport is the sunsets. The expansive runways make for a perfect space where the setting sun takes center stage. I look forward to cloud-free days - not just for smooth flying - but for nature's show. Sometimes, when things are taking their toll at the airport, I just look out the window and the soaring airplanes coupled with the warm hues of the sunset - well, there is no other word other than breath-taking.
I love watching planes power up, as the bridge pulls away from the aircraft, and backing out to taxi away. I would never find a car pulling out of a driveway quite so inspiring, but a plane with its sleek shape, curvy wings, and formidable engines - there is something elegant about watching these people-movers beginning their travels to places that require air travel to get them there. Often, during my coffee break, I just take quiet time watching the planes arrive and leave the gate area. Things are as they should be.
These are ordinary moments when I am working at the airport, but somehow move me past the sometimes chaotic, difficult times at the airport. And now it is your turn - share what you enjoy about the airport experience.
