The heaviest of heavies, an Allegiant A319… It was headed to Missoula. I flew on N306NV last year from Los Angeles to Albuquerque and back. I thought it was pretty cool to spot a plane I flew on!

Amazing! Love that LAN Chile 767-300.
Fantastic livery, and shot!

And holy… you were so close to that KLM 747-400 Copenhagen airport crew would never let any planespotters be that close… lol
That Alitalia though, gives so much Italian vibes.
Wingflex of American 787-8 I believe? Amazing :D

Personally, love it. keep up the good work, my friend!

Thank you all! The AA is a -9.

Very good photos, especially the last one with the China Cargo and another aircraft in the background, don’t know if it was on purpose but it is great.

thats not a -400F, its a -400BCF. this one has been converted to cargo from previous passenger operations. you can see the difference between the two variants using the next photo (china airlines 747-400F) as comparison.

Thank you! I wish I could do night spotting , but my camera pics are super grainy.

What camera do you use? Also it may just be the lens your using. I use a $30 telephoto lens on my camera.

I use a Panasonic lumix.

This might be because of the heat haze and smaller sensor size

Beautiful shot of 787
