GTI's N496MC, operating as Giant Flt. 8200, completes a flight from Amsterdam's Schiphol (EHAM) to Reno Tahoe International as it touches down on runway 34R yesterday afternoon. The Atlas Air bird was arriving with a tremendously expensive cargo: it delivered the Gumball 3000 race cars from Amsterdam so the United States "leg" of the Stockholm-to-Las Vegas race could be resumed in San Francisco this morning. As part of the photog group covering the arrival, my greatest thrill was this once-in-my-lifetime opportunity to be within 150 feet of a B747 that was landing literally a stone's toss away. This aircraft is truly The Queen Of The Skies; it was a gorgeous sight seeing it this closely.
