United's N75435, a B739 that wears UA's Continental Airlines "Blue Skyway" special heritage livery, is captured here as it is about 3/4ths of a mile away from Reno-Tahoe International and travelling at climbing speed (roughly 240 knots ... 275 MPH ... or slightly faster) and climbing for 19,000 after being the first commercial jetliner to depart RNO well before dawn. In order for me to get this photo, I climbed Rattlesnake Mountain and positioned at a location on the west side that would put me even with the jet as it was departing to the south. The camera was handheld. I focused on the brightly lit tail and panned as the jet went by. Camera data is provided ....
