Last January, I spent a few hours at KPHL. It was a very cloudy day, but I still got some pretty good shots. I also went to spot the American 787, who started flying out of KPHL at the beginning of 2020.
Enjoy the photos!
Here is an American Airlines Boeing 787-8 (N804AN). American started operating the 787s out of KPHL at the beginning of 2020, to replace their Boeing 767s and Airbus A330s.
Here is an American Eagle Embraer E145, operated by Piedmont Airlines (N691AE).
A JetBlue E190 (N358JB) arriving from KBOS.
The longest commercial route arriving at KPHL, from OTHH. This flight normally uses Qatar’s A350-900, but the occasional B777-300 sometimes replaces the A350.
Here’s an American Airbus A321 (N552UW), which was the 7,000th Airbus to be delivered.
This is a very interesting shot. In March of 2014, US Airways flight 1702 aborted takeoff, causing the front landing gear to collapse. The aircraft, N113UW, has been sitting at KPHL since.
