Spent a couple of days in Las Vegas and got these beauties bringing in the high rollers.

Thanks again to the Las Vegas POTN'ers for the perfect weather and great hospitality!

Hey cool - I used to fly for Papillon Helicopters based right next to those planes, though they didn't have a 747 back then (the rainbow colored helicopter visible in the right of a couple of the shots is one of Papillon's... I've probably flown that very one). Your nice clear shots of my old workplace are makin' me all nostalgic (though I sure don't miss the summers there ;)).
