Airbus A320 (N102UW) - On final is this 1998 American Airlines Airbus A320-214 from the Autumn of 2020. I am spotting at nearby Fort Mifflin and this flag represents the Continental Navy Colors that the soldiers used as they defended this area of Philadelphia and the Delaware River in 1777. Around the same period Betsy Ross would make our original Red,White and Blue Flag with the 13 Stars and Stripes.

THIS is a PREMIER pic!! The American flag on the tail of the AA Airbus in the same photo as the Continental Navy Flag -- an exceptional "dual" capture shot! And wonderfully unique! These are the kind of clicks it is always refreshing to see ... and truly exciting to be the photog who is snapping it. ***** x 2 for sure. Thank You Very Much for sharing this. And Congrats.

Thanks for the best compliment I ever got on a posting. From that same outing at the Fort I will be posting one more American and a very nice Qatar Airbus 350 early next week both of which will have the Continental Navy Flag flying high.

No need to thank me; your pic is truly worthy of a compliment. We had this up on the big screen last night -- it is superb. Looking forward to the others you mentioned. (Tip of our caps to you ....)

This late 18th Century spotting location is not too bad at all and as I said one more American and a Qatar coming early next week to close out my Autumn outings.
Check out Ft. MIFFLIN.US for more early history of our country. Thanks Gary
