This was an amazing sight for me to see!
Update: just went plane spotting, saw it again:
I haven’t been there, but it’s the 16th biggest airport in the US, and the 50th biggest in the world. Hardly “regional”
MSP has a LHR Service, not particularly regional
The official viewing area, here’s a map:
Here’s what I see when I go plane spotting:
Another type of MD-80
Lots of CRJs!
The rare 737
Creepy small plane
Extremely rare vandalized 767
Extremely rare 757
757/767/737/A320/A319 takeoff behind the cargo building so I can’t see them
The CRJ/MD-80/717/777 takes off on the good runway
Hardly the regular 747/A340/777/787 traffic some of you guys see
Where do you go? See my post below for what I see
Concourse G if I recall correctly?
In that case, why is the airport not in global yet? I checked the Github thing and I can’t find it.
Rare 737? It’s all SWA flies…
MSP has some beautiful aircraft, several A330’s and a couple of 777’s. The regional jets are amazing. Really surprised you didn’t find MSP to have some amazing spots. My profile pic came from MSP.
But they all go to the secret FBI runway behind the cargo building so I can’t see them
Tell me, how many times have you seen that at the official viewing area (not inside T1 or T2)
Once, the gate area is technically an official viewing area.
I was lucky enough to see the 777 once, but it flew away and never came back
I looked up the registration, if I’m not incorrect it was the 777 that experienced an uncommanded engine rollback mid-flight
@Danman Well the"Official" viewing area for people who are not going on a flight is at the plane spotting place with benches. The unofficial area is in the airport itself.
Filming planes: as easy as falling off a snow-covered bench
alright, i know im going to Heathrow tommorow then, Dayumn i gotta find some good planes.
This is what we call hassling. It’s a bit disrespectful to the Editing team. If an airport is good enough from the X-Plane files, they don’t have to replicate it. So it’s there. Every airport is there.
