Well THERE's your problem. You're using Nikon.

John T is a great teacher. It's all about the quality of light hitting the sensor. Learn to use Aperture Priority and shoot a ton of pics. If you don't have Lightroom, get it. And Youtube is still the world's most amazing resource for errything.

A potential disaster was averted at San Francisco International Airport after the pilot of a commercial jet carrying 140 people mistakenly lined up to land on a bustling airplane taxiway rather than the parallel runway, officials said Tuesday.
The Air Canada jet, an Airbus A320, was instructed by an air traffic controller to halt its descent and conduct a “go-around” just before midnight Friday as it approached the taxiway, where four commercial planes full of passengers and fuel were preparing to take off, said the Federal Aviation Administration.
The plane, which was inbound from Toronto, carrying 135 passengers and five crew members, safely circled and landed on Runway 28R, the agency said. Officials said the FAA is investigating the incident, including “the distance between the Air Canada aircraft and the jets that were lined up on Taxiway C.”
Air Canada released a statement Tuesday saying, “We are still investigating the circumstances and therefore have no additional information to offer.”
An audio recording captured the moment when the pilot, who was not identified, attempted to make the landing. He said, “Tower, Air Canada 759. I can see lights on the runway there. Can you confirm we’re clear to land?”
An air traffic controller responded, “Air Canada 759, confirmed cleared to land on 28 Right, there is no one on 28 Right but you.”
“OK, Air Canada 759,” the pilot confirmed.
A voice then interjected, “Where is this guy going? He’s on the taxiway.”
At that point, the control tower instructed the pilot to go around and make another approach.
Shortly after the pilot changed course to circle around, a United Airlines pilot radioed in to the tower and said, “United 1, Air Canada flew directly over us.”

Code Brown moment for sure.

Flight 1883 approached Newark from the north, initially planning to land on runway 22L using an ILS instrument approach. As the flight descended to an altitude of about 8,000–9,000 feet (2,400–2,700 m), air traffic controllers instructed Flight 1883 to circle to land on runway 29. This required descending toward runway 22L, followed by a low altitude circling maneuver that required a right turn at only 900 feet (270 m) to line up for runway 29.

As the flight crew descended and turned toward the airport, they observed four white path indicator lights, which they believed were located to the left of the runway. This was incorrect; the instrument procedures for Newark described these indicator lights as being to the right of the runway. Keeping the indicator lights to their left, the pilots landed on 75 feet (23 m) wide taxiway Z at 18:31 EDT. The Boeing 757 jetliner, with a wingspan of 155 feet (47 m), touched down at 130 knots (240 km/h) near the intersection of taxiways Z and R, rolled out and came to a stop without incident. The aircraft then taxied to the gate where all passengers were deplaned. According to the FAA, all lighting systems associated with runway 29 and taxiway Z were operating normally at the time. Runway 29, the intended landing runway, is 150 feet (46 m) wide and 6,800 feet (2,100 m) long

Perhaps belongs in beer thread, but Ima just leave this here:

"Former Anheuser-Busch CEO Arrested After Failing A Sobriety Test While Piloting A Helicopter"

http://jalopnik.com/former-anheuser-...obr-1796829216

Quote:
At that point, Busch told officers that he was about to have a panic attack. He began jumping and running sprints saying that he needed more oxygen to deal with the attack."

"Busch told officers that he had a conceal carry license and had a Rohrbaugh R9 9mm in the front pocket of his pants. He told them that the weapon was, “hot.” The removed the gun from his pocket. Police also found Dexamethasone in his pocket. The prescription was for August’s wife.

At that point, Busch told officers that he was about to have a panic attack. He began jumping and running sprints saying that he needed more oxygen to deal with the attack.

A search of the helicopter turned up several weapons. Police discovered a loaded Ruger LCR 22 LR revolver, a Ruger SP101 .357 Magnum revolver with four live rounds, and a loaded Glock Austria .357 with one round in the chamber. Investigators also found several bottles of prescription drugs; Letrozole prescribed for his wife and Alprazoiam, Clonazepam prescribed for Busch. A large bag of prescription drugs that his wife said were to assist with fertility was also found.
