Wow, awesome photos! And so many rare planes too, amazing catch!

Thanks, I had only planned on going to shot the Vietnam plane, but due to Covid there have been some unusual visitors.

If only that was CLT, lol 😂. The only special visitor we’ve had is a World Atlantic MD-80 (still amazing though). But we always have the normal CRJ, ERJ, CRJ, A320 routine most of the time.

Well my home airport of CYXU has had 1 daily Westjet Encore Dash 8 flight. Sometimes we get a diversion from CYHM when they have low fog. Wish I didn’t have to drive for 2 hours for all of these.

Great photos! What a lovely livery, Vietnam’s livery. I like all the other catches too. I actually saw the Air Canada retro a few years back at LAX!

Thanks. I’m happy I got the retro since it is included in the A319 retirement.
