Cbro4 - Spotting Session @ KTPA (04APR2018)

Hey everyone! I was spotting at KTPA earlier this week and I thought I would share my top 20 shots. I ended up taking over 100 pictures, so it was hard to limit it down from there. I believe I was able to see every airline serviced at KTPA, that isn’t international (they only operate 1 flight per international airline). Enjoy!

Feel free to comment below with your favorite pics.

NOTE: I had to pick up my friend who took the Delta A321. That’s why there’s a ton of pictures of it. 😉


N7860A had to be a favorite. The glare off the Southwest gave the aircraft a sort of bright effect. Was that Aircraft landing as well?


No, that aircraft had just begun rotating off the runway. They did do a runway change in the middle of my session, so that’s why some of the aircraft are landing the other way.

Also hoping to post pictures from KATL that I got the next day, so stay tuned for that.

Great shots, keep up the great work.


Thanks! Sorry I couldn’t make it to your neck of the woods.

Very nice shots! Southwest B737 landing is 💵.
