We took a trip over the last summer out to California. We visited Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park, and San Francisco. Both directions were flown on American Airlines expect for a short leg from STS to LAX onboard Horizon Airlines (next trip report)

American Eagle Flight 4067 Information:

  • Flight: Richmond International Airport (RIC) to Chicago O’Hare International (ORD)
  • Flight Time: 2 Hours, 10 Minutes
  • Aircraft: American Eagle ERJ/EMB-145 N614AE
  • Seat: 8A

It was a nice sunrise departure from Richmond. Sitting in a row with only 1 seat was nice because I could stretch out some.

Here is a video from the sunrise departure out of RIC which can also be found on my youtube channel: MartinsAviation1

    That angle was *almost* familiar… Forest preserve, buildings, River Road, tollway, Mannheim Road, then the fence. The look down 22L just after you cross River Rd. gives it away: it’s 27L, seen from the left side. I always tried to get a right side window seat going into ORD. Back when that was 27R (before they opened the new 27R) the eastbound leg of the approach, before it turns south over the lake, let you see right into my back yard.

    Thanks for the view of my old haunts!

    Hey, next time your in my city go to Chicago Executive airport in Wheeling, IL it’s about 10 minutes north of O’hare airport and go to Windy City Flyers for a plane ride at dawn around downtown Chicago or go to Chicago Helicopter Experience at the same airport and get a rotor tour of the city its amazing. I go to that airport a lot and sit and watch the planes.
