    Yep, Talladega.

    Funny, I recognized the race track before I saw the runway. And the race track was built on a former military air base.

    I was sort of joking about the "harder" one in post #83. I thought someone might make a good guess based on where I live. That pic was taken on the way to another airport in the area for an Angel Flight mission. You can see the top of the tower and a departing airliner. I have pics from that flight showing antennae and tops of tall building above the clouds too.

    Here are a few other pics that should make it obvious; these three plus the one in post #83 are the same airport.

    Big airports are fascinating, like little cities of their own.
