Bizzzzzjets @ KIAD

Hey IFC, I have more photos of planes. After spotting at the Udvar Hazy center for my last spotting topic, I went over to Signature FS in the northeast corner of the airport, to take photos of planes without horrible clouds. As expected, I saw plenty of NetJets aircraft, some other bizjets, and to my surprise, an F/A-18C. No idea what it’s doing here, but it was cool. Anyways, enjoy!

First up is a sweet Challenger 650 operated by NetJets unloading its passengers


Here’s another NetJet, a Citation X, I believe


Following the ugly Citation is this Hawker 800XP, a first time seeing this aircraft for me.


A FlexJet Challenger 300 in a nice livery sitting behind some obnoxiously orange cones. I’m just now realizing that the horizon isn’t straight, but I don’t feel like fixing it 😃


The unplanned star of the day, an F/A-18C belonging to VFA-204 “River Rattlers”


A shy little Global 6000 belonging to NetJets


Guess who operates this Global 6000


Thats all for today, and probably for a bit, until it warms up to a temperature above 35F. I hope you enjoyed, adios :)
