I Spotted My Dad! @KPHX

Heyo! So this happened before my previous spotting topic with the JetBlue and WestJet specials and I thought it finally needs to be posted. Since my mom and I were already in the downtown area, we went spotting because we had nothing else to do.

Anyway let’s plop right into it.

First up is a Prime Air 767 lining up.

2nd is a Delta A321 crossing the bridge

Next we have a SWA 737-800 still wearing the older Canyon Blue livery buttering the bread on runway 26

Next up is another SWA buttering on 25R. I ran across the parking garage about 4 or 5 times 😂

A cute little Contour E135 taxiing out for a flight to Page AZ.

Here’s my dad! He was piloting this flight from the right seat! It was totally unexpected too!

Next up is the Honeywell flight testing 757!

This was taken a day later at a different spot, but it’s a Delta A350 arriving with the Buffalo Bills which the cardinals beat on Sunday 😂.
it was the game of the year, if you haven’t seen it, please watch it.

Anyway that’s it!

Spotting from the parking garage at Sky Harbor is such a great workout! I know the feeling of sprinting from one side to the other to film different aircraft landing! XD

I did the same thing in February, but my dad was in the back of the plane, headed to Dallas on a business trip. Nice shots!

That was the best game of the year. I got to agree.

@MJP_27 and I spotted this one in Buffalo. You’re welcome for the delay else you wouldn’t have gotten golden hour for it.

Some really, really nice pictures! I love the one below with the tire smoke, but also the first pictures of your Dad‘s flight and the Contour one have stunning light conditions. (Also very cool that you spotted your Dad flying, must be a rather special thing!) As always, thanks for sharing!

It’s awesome that you got to spot your dad! I get to spot my dad doing work as well…sitting at his desk in the office. Not quite as exciting.

I had to try and stall my dad into letting us see it anyway 😂. Glad I was able to see it!

@JulianB thank you so much! Appreciate it! That was the first time I’ve ever actually seen my dad land 😂

It really is! You should put a model plane on your dads desk and then you can go spotting 😂
