C-17s and Other Traffic at KPSP

Hello, IFC,

I know… another spotting topic… Misha will get mad at me…

But these ones are good for once!

I went to the aviation museum at KPSP, climbed (legally) on the roof of a DC-3 and took these pics (from above the fence) 😏

I also had fun with aperture and autofocus.

My Instagram is @alvar_j.l

Here we go :)

A United Express E175 reverse thrusting with the terminal in the background.

In my previous topics, I put birds in my photos, so here is a second crow for @anon38496261 :) :) :)

Why am I even writing these?

A beautiful bird landing for @RotorGuy :)

Finally, the golden livery in the golden desert!

Thank You!

After these photos, I got a sunburn on my left arm and now it hurts and I put water on it and it doesn’t help and it still hurts and that was a run on sentence…

I will make a spotting topic about the museum, but only if you want me to…
Should I?

Have a nice day!

Misha, pleez don’t get mad at me 🥺

Is that Marine one?


That McGuire AFB C-17 is gorgeous


You poor guy. I never seem to sunburn. The big question however, in your opinion was the crispy skin worth it for those photos?


Very noice very noice 👌

Nice bird too 😂

I caught an owl tryna break into the airport when I went spotting the other day.

Let me see if I can find the pic.

This is Tony. Tony needs to not break into airports any more. He could get himself and other people very hurt 😔

If you or a loved one have recently been affected by a bird strike, dial +1 (800) 096-TONY. That’s +1 (800) 096-TONY

Lol 😂


Nice loved the Alaska one


I have called for Tony recently destroying all of my photos by flying in front of them. On second thought he makes them better.


The private jet is a Cessna Citation V and the turboprop is a PC-12

Did they fire any flares or anything to help scare the birds away?

Nice! Love the blurring you’re doing. Really like that AA737 the tail stands out against the mountains.

That small jet happens to be a Cessna 560 Citation. Tail numbers and google are wonderful things.

Lol ok then
