IAH Spotting 3-25-18 (KLM 787-9)

IAH Spotting (KLM 787-9) 3-25-18

Next Spotting Trip Unknown

On Sunday, March 25th, KLM started operating the 787-9 Dreamliner on the Amsterdam to Houston route. This is a big change for us in Houston. KLM has been sending the 747 to IAH for over 40 years, 1972 to be exact. But, this only goes to show how Houston IAH is evolving into a more modern airport, with more operators bringing the 787 and A350. Sunday, while waiting for KLM, I saw plenty of other aircraft, and here they are!

Nice find with the SSJ. It’s pretty hard to find Russian aircraft at a US airport.

Nice Photos!!! I really like the Air NZ one. I would bring up the blacks in post for a few of them. My opinion personally.

Great photos! pretty awesome to spot a fellow IFC in a flight!

Considering the level of flights that go in and out of Houston, I’m surprised they haven’t risen the level of the airport. maybe just me.
