Etihad's Special Visit @ KLAS

Vegas has been running UFC Charter flights for the past 2-3 weeks back and fourth between Vegas and Abu Dhabi. Usually, they arrive at 6PM which would be dark, and depart 6AM in which why would I wake up to go spotting at 5AM.

This time, not only did they fly their new livery for the first time, they also arrived ahead of schedule at 3:45PM! Perfect for golden hour! Enjoy!

All shots on 1/320 and F/8.0 along with ISO100.


Special one-of-a-kind MiTSuBiShi CRJ-200ER arriving from Scottsdale! This baby has been doing trips back and forth between Henderson Executive and Scottsdale!


A little E-175 for SkyWest arriving from LAX.


It’s time for the spotlight, the extremely heavy light 777-300ER operating for Etihad Airways! Usually, she flies here empty and returns with UFC Executives and Participants.

Did not butter, I repeat, did not butter. Whatsup with Etihad pilots not being able to butter their 77W? Also why’d the fence have to cut into the landing gear by a millimeter.


The sun shining off the fuselage before not buttering the bread.


I mixed this up with the “Eco Skies” livery which arrived an hour before and now I’m not happy.

All he does is edit. It just takes editing

I like the plain picture more but that’s up to him

No, it’s not. Point and shoot and slap on an edit is zero effort. You have to take into account the lighting, location, settings, etc. You can’t take a perfect shot just by pointing and shooting.
