Backlit Summer Vibes // Spotting @ KGRR

After jumping my car after having a dead battery at school, I decided to treat myself to a Friday afternoon spotting session out at the airport! It’s exam week this week, that means it’s almost summer! Let’s see what we got. I cropped these with the 5 mins I had at work, so bear with me 😅


United E170

The only commercial arrival of the day is this United E170 operated by Republic Airways coming in from Newark, NJ


Aeromed
N176AM
Aeromed comes back to GRR after bringing a patient back from Big Rapids via Spectrum Health

First of many rotation shots today, is this Allegiant A320 rotating off for Austin, TX. This aircraft replaced Winter the Dolphin, which is very sad 😢

You’re gonna be surprised but those aren’t backlit yet rather a frontlit/toplit. Another 2 weeks or so and you’ll see the difference.
