Notes: This was taken in the early 80s. As we approached Seattle, I was shooting some pictures of Mt. St. Helens from the right side of the plane. I think that's starboard. Anyway, the flight attendent said, "If you want to take pictures of the mountains, you should come over here." I expected to see Mt. Hood in the distance. I wanted to take a picture of it, I didn't want to land on it. If you are going to shoot pictures this way, remember to roll down the window.
