I’m Leaving on a Jet Plane was written by John Denver in 1966 and most memorably sung by the trio of Peter, Paul and Mary. It turned out to be their greatest hit.

This is Franklin Park Illinois. CP runs numerous freight trains through the town along with METRA, the Chicagoland commuter railroad. And not far away is one of America’ busiest airports, Chicago O’Hare International Airport. This morning the timing was right as an American Airlines flight climbed out of O’Hare while CP waited for the signal to proceed.

And… I’ll be leaving on a jet plane in about 3 hours, and I don’t know when I’ll be back again.
