    Part 2 of my Chicago O'Hare visit takes me through T3 and then back to T1 for take-off:

    Very impressive, like I said before. I didn't know how big ORD really was until I read your review. Aviation overload I am sure.

    That's a great photo. I visited ORD back in 1989. I had joined BA the year before and as soon as my staff travel entitlement became available I jumped on a flight to O'Hare for a few days plane spotting and photography. There were still 727-100s and DC-8s coming and going then. BA were operating 747 Classics back then and G-AWNE was the allocated aircraft both on the flight out and the return.
