Illinois One is Back @ KPHX

hello again, i’m back this time doing some evening/golden hour spotting which was fun

illinois one has returned back to the lineup and now i can say i’ve seen every state special livery swa has

anyway onto the pictures


illi close up as she started her taxi out bound for Indianapolis


Colorado One pulled up for a boop


a traditional A321 floats on by the mesa hangar


i still prefer this sun country livery over the new one


idk but i like this crop


milliseconds before disaster as this was the hardest max landing i’ve ever seen 😂


can’t have a proper spotting topic without Southwest


the brits and a beautifully lit Piestewa peak


pure eye candy


closing it off with a golden moody max

yayyy, Illinois One is back! I can’t wait to never have it come to SNA, still waiting for the new TN1. But in all seriousness, it looks very nice. I think it fits the -800 better than TN1. Lovely shots btw. Those clouds with the BA are absolutely magnificent.

100% agree with you


while i definitely prefer the 77W, the 35K is a nice jet


77W>35K


thank you! i wanna move outta here it’s impossible to spot in the summer


Thank you!


I definitely agree Illinois looks better on the -800 than TN1. TN1 looks too stretched. Glad you like the BA shot!

The lump on top of the middle-back fuselage is for the internet right?

I remember tracking it on FR24 when it went to Victorville. I used to plane spot these livery’s exclusively when they flew out of Burbank cause I live on the takeoff route.
