Houston (IAH) Planespotting

So I have traveled this weekend to Houston! Houston is so fun and has so much great things to do! So I had to go to IAH and spot there. So today I drove to the airport and spotted! Hope you enjoy these, I sacrificed myself in the 95 degree weather in texas to do this.

First off we stopped at the end of the runway of 15L and 15R called Rankin Rd and here we have the 737-800 united star alliance livery departing

Then next we have the regular and very common airline to see in the US, 737-700 southwest departing after

Then another united 737-800 aircraft but in the evo blue livery departing

Then we went to another location right in front of runway 26L and watched some arrive. We have this united E-175LR coming in from detroit.

Then we caught a glimse of the national cargo 747-400F! We saw it land but didn’t get a picture of it but we did see it taxi close to us. He came from Birmingham.

Then right after the 747 came in the KLM 787-9 zooming in from the Netherlands 🇳🇱.

After that we saw a prime air 767F parked and unloading cargo after landing like 20 minutes before we got there.

Again now we have another common sight to see here, a ERJ-145 arriving from Huntsville.

Then we have a not common sight to see at houston is american airlines, this A320 was coming in from Phoenix. As you can see, a new spot but on the same runway at 26L After this was an A220! But sadly didn’t get ready enough to get a good shot of it.

Aaaand now the grand finale! The queen of the skies has shown up making it the 4th heavy spotted today! And flew right above our heads! This big 747-8 was coming in from Frankfurt on a long 9 hour flight.

Well thats it! Hope you enjoyed, I have a lot of other pictures of the terminals, entrance, tower and other aircraft but I picked out the best to show you guys here in the 10 picture maximum. See you next time!
