Shot of the day: Three of a kind*

An early-morning shot of the American maintenance hangar, where three B737-800s await their turn to reposition to the terminal to begin another day of flying. Between them and the roof of the TBIT can be seen the new Taxiway Tango under construction on the site of the old American maintenance hangar, which was also the location of the American Eagle terminal. If you look closely, you can see that there's already somebody parked on one of the new TBIT gates, most likely Qantas.

At first light, American has a good deal more than three aircraft on the maintenance ramp waiting to start the day. Here's a wider shot:

And here's a shot of the former TWA maintenance ramp, where another gaggle of Americans are staged:


 * - This started out as the usual shot of the day, but the theme seemed to be three, so you get two more photos for no extra charge. My original working title was "Tic tac toe, three in a row," but I suspect that some of you are from parts of the world to whom that will make no sense whatsoever.
