First Time Spotting in Ottawa @ CYOW | 28/09/2019

Hello IFC!

Back in September, I went plane spotting at Ottawa McDonald Int’l Airport (or CYOW) for the first time! As I stated in my last CYYZ spotting topic, I’ve moved to Ottawa

No need to be sad though, I’ll have plenty of Ottawa plane spotting too!

Hope you enjoyed these pictures! Definitely more Ottawa spotting to come, although it probably won’t be until February or March because of the harsh Canadian winters.

Which photo was your favorite? Let me know below!


rip all the heavies…until LH comes around. Cool angle on the WestJet


Thank You! I will definitely miss the low passing 747’s and A350’s at runway 23…


Nice photos, pretty sad you’re going away from CYYZ. But it seems like almost the same traffic in CYYC or CYEG. Also how is my boi Trudeau doing

Thank You! Ottawa is definitely a very small airport.

Ottawa is indeed a great airport! Just flew out of it to Halifax some months back. Great shots!

Thank You! Indeed it is a great… and small airport!

Might be small, but if you’ve ever been inside, it’s a very modern Airport. + Some cool Airport renovations are going on lol.

Man you should see if that Cessna is free… it would make a good morning lane if you where to fix it up.

I think it’s for emergency training, hence why it’s broken. That would be great though!


Great pics with that Canadian spirit🇨🇦
