2017 Textron Aviation Inc 208B

This week, I was challenged by Marie @toinette to capture something or someone that is moving. I took photos of planes taking off and landing at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. I had conversations with two very interesting people- one who was involved in the construction resulting in the expansion of the runway who informed me that the runway was actually 18" deep poured concrete, and the other who has traveled and photographed planes at airports around the world. I learned from the plane spotter how to look up the plane's information from its registration number. I actually found this to be a lot of fun. Expect more airplane photos in the future. This plane is a 2017 Textron Aviation Inc 208B, Serial Number 208B5343, owned by Bank of Utah Trustee in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. It is a fixed wing, single engine plane that seats 12 people. It's engine is a P&W CANADA PT6A-140 Turbo-prop, 867 Horsepower. Weight: Less than 12,500 lbs.
It great that you are allowed to photograph airplanes. This day and time, it's a bit tough to know what we can and cannot photograph.

@randystreat Thanks for your comment on my photo of the seaplane. At the Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale Airport, they actually built a pathway and very nice park area with a parking lot on the one side of the airport right along the one runway. There's a raised area behind the fence that has a great view of that runway. People come out to picnic, walk or run on the pathway, and watch and/or photograph the planes taking off and landing. It's not only allowed, it's encouraged.
