Rainier Airline Photo Request
« on: 11/30/16, 06:39 PM »

Strange request ...

I am looking for photos of Rainier from the air.  If you are flying into or out of SEATAC and can get ANY photo of Rainier from the air, I would be greatly appreciated. 

Looking specifically for the conditions of the glaciers around the entire mountain, so any photo you can get would be useful. 

Looking for pics from now through when I fly in on the 9th. 

You can send me a message, or shoot me an email at daveschultz125(at)gmail(dot)com or call/text at 239-two-three-three-2002.

Thanks!

Dave

Here's one of the west side I took a couple years ago. Not sure if you're talking recent photos or not.

Thanks for the posts. 

I am looking for current conditions, so older pics are not what I'm looking for. 

A specific objective involves some glacier travel and I'm trying to assess the visual appearance so I have an idea going into it. 

Basically asking anyone who might be flying into/out of SEATAC to look out their window and snap pics if they are lucky enough to be on the correct side of the plane. 

If anyone is out there and takes pics from the ground, that might help but probably not a high enough angle to see the appearance of cracks (or hopefully lack of cracks). 

I hope that clarifies it. 

Thanks!

Here's a recent one. Sorry you can't see it very well though, there was something blocking the view.
