Catching up

This topic was created specifically for @AndrewWu

Hello community members!

It has been 88 days since my last spotting topic, so its time to do a little bit of recap. These photos are from various locations, dates, etc., but I will include a caption for each to explain a little bit.



Over-edited Southwest 737-700 settling down on runway 10 at KBWI


United 737-900ER rotating off of runway 15R at KBWI


Cute little Contour at the same location as the previous photo, departing off for Macon, GA


Alaska 737-900ER moments before landing on runway 33L at KBWI, I’ll add this was taken while spotting with @AndrewWu, who was in the area. Was great to meet you, Andrew!


Same location as previous photo, but this time a beautiful “Smiley-Jet” American A319 in the PSA heritage livery


Different edit of a Delta mini-maddog (717/MD95), approaching 33L at BWI


Catch of “Hops the Rabbit”, a Frontier A320neo, about to land on a very-rarely-landed-on runway 15R

Wingview of a United 737-800 descending over Lake Michigan, approaching Chicago O’Hare Airport


The beautiful night sights of Manhattan and Sully’s infamous landing strip, on an American A319 en route KLGA-KDCA


To close it out, here is a suprisingly sharp pan of a Delta 767-400 slowing down in ATL

Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed the photos. I can’t promise the frequency of @Moritz with his posts, but I try my best to post every once in a while.

Stay home guys!

Very nice! BWI is in my trifecta of favorite US airports (along with AUS and CLT)!

Next time you’re turning over a city at night, take a long exposure. you’ll be pleasantly surprised :)

Yeah, my hands are not steady enough for that. Kudos to anyone who does have hands like that.
I think this one was like 1/10, and I had to bump up the ISO a tad so the light would equalize. Even that was hard for me.

Yeah, it is a tad blurry. At this point, I either go for a 1/50 or higher. If I tried to do the long exposure it’d be around 3’’, which is pretty tricky.

There is always the wing option!

was desolate yesterday. The ramp agents were so bored they were throwing a ball to each other. Although I did meet an idol of mine as World Atlantic Airlines flight 700 (MD-83) was coming in from SXM. There were 4 spotters there yesterday although when AF1 came in a few months back, there were maybe 7x that.

Those are some good photos. Love the 767-400, one of my favorite looking planes, unpopular opinion? Thought so 😂

Either way wish we got more up here, too bad 767s are disappearing, but the 787 is a worthy successor…
