Foggy Minneapolis Spotting

Hello Humans (and bison) of IFC

On this unseasonably warm Sunday, I went spotting at Minneapolis - Saint Paul International Airport, which was under LIFR conditions, due to the fog (also unseasonable).

I used my phone (skill issue, I know), which is an iPhone 13 to capture these shots.

Delta A330-900 (N420DX) AMS-MSP


Setting up for a butter landing, with a Beechcraft photobombing.

Delta A330-300 (N804NW) CDG-MSP


Another butter machine, ex Northwest. A bit of an unstable short final, but they managed to make a smooth touchdown.

Delta A319-114 (N370NB) MSP-VPS


A Delta A319 taxiing out for departure to a much, much sunnier place - Destin, Florida. Back on the de ice stand, we have N924DZ, a company 739 preparing for a quick hop to Detroit.

Frontier A320neo (N380FR) RSW-MSP


Verde the Resplendent Quetzal arriving in from Fort Myers.

American Airlines A321-211 (N173US) CLT- MSP


After a stream of Delta narrow bodies, it was nice to see some variety in the arrivals.

United Airlines 737 MAX 8 (N17314) MSP-EWR


A delayed MAX 8 taxiing out for Newark.

Private Gulfstream IV (N880CF) FLL - STC (Diverted to MSP)


This Gulfstream IV was heading up to Saint Cloud Regional Airport, about 60 miles northwest of Minneapolis. The airport shut down this morning due to fog, so the plane had to divert.

Delta A321neo (N514DE) MCO-MSP


Stunning A321neo with an eye mask touching down from Orlando.

Marvin Lumber and Cedar Beechcraft 1900D (MSP-RRT)


A Beechcraft departing up to Warrod, in the extreme northwest corner of Minnesota.

Southwest 737-700 (N7068A) DEN-MSP


This lovely Southwest 737 -700 making a very hard landing in from the Mile High City (Denver)

Are you having a stroke or something? That’s not a coherent sentence.

Denver! Sorry, forgot to add the final word.

It was an incredible amount of butter. I posted the video HERE, on my YouTube Channel.
