Love 737s? Check out DFWTower.com's new photo book

Alaska airline photo
Aviation enthusiast Greg Gayden has spent years taking pictures of planes.

Big planes, little planes and lots of planes that land at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.

A few months ago when he was visiting his father, Gayden found several old coffee table books that were full of plane pictures and thought with all of the pictures he's taken, he could probably put one together too.

And so, "In Focus: Boeing 737" was created.

"It was something fun for me to do with the photos," said Gayden, who runs DFWTower.com, a local plane spotting website. "So I just put it all together and threw it up on iTunes."

In the book, which can be found here, Gayden included special liveries and some older liveries of airlines that don't exist anymore like ATA. He also has photos of the new American Airlines livery with the flag on the tail along with its traditional metal livery.

The photos were shot at DFW, Los Angeles, London Heathrow and in Tokyo over the course of several years. Locally, Gayden says he often shoots photos from Founders Plaza on the northwest side of DFW.

Gayden, who works as a Transportation Security Administration inspector at DFW, said it was fun compiling the book and plans to create others.

Up next...the A319.
