hello all, it has been a minute since i’ve last spotted in phoenix. precisely 63360 minutes to be exact.
anyway i looked at the flight boards and noticed there would be a bunch of the remaining 29 canyon blues so i took the opportunity to see some of them. I ended up seeing 4 of them including the last -700 with splits.
coupled with other military surprises it was a great day to be back at the airport.
the first CB of the day was this -800 headed off to SFO
soon followed the last CB -700 with splits headed out for Omaha
then we had this rocker of an Alaska jet power out for the PNW
the 3rd CB of the morning headed out for a destination i do not remember
the first C-17 to depart. this was ironically my dad’s jet (the SWA one) with this c-17 in the background. a shot that he now wants to get framed.
then we had this JSX embraer leak fuel on departure
the 2nd moose headed out for an unknown destination
another rocker being this AA max 8 head out for SNA
then a C-130 departed 🤷♂️
closing out the topic with the 4th CB of the day blasting off for someplace east!
thank you for viewing!
blue ish purple go brrrrr
These are amazing pictures!!! Doing Canyon Blue justice!
My old Canyon Purple for you.
Nice photos, all of them! But two in particular I found curious. For the Embraer, have you ever seen such a fuel venting before? I was pretty surprised but then found:
(2) Embraer 145 Fuel Leak In Flight - YouTube
Also, for your last photo, did you purposefully frame the highest 3 homes on the south face of Camelback Mountain? Because the angle would require a lot of accuracy, it’d be kind of amazing if it was by accident?
one of those C-17’s came to me here at PHOG
southwest shouldnt have got rid of the canyon blues
Southwest shouldn’t have gotten rid of Canyon Blue to begin with.
And the Desert Gold
But then there Canyon Blue wouldn’t have been a thing. Although Desert Gold, in my opinion, was their best livery.
I’m hoping that when Southwest begins getting the max 7, they at least have a few with the desert gold and canyon blue liveries. I really want to see my pfp become a real aircraft from Southwest
i’ve seen quite a few JSX jets before, never have seen them vent fuel like i did today, considering i saw two more of them after that
and for the houses, no that was not planned at all lmao
Canyon Blue was their best livery. Their current one is horrible
Though I already commented, I’m going to lean into this one. I overly agree with this! To me this is a 1 in 1000 shot. It’s certainly got to be one of my picks for top shots of the year (or more).
