I spent a majority of my day spotting at San Jose International Airport today for the first time in months. It brought back memories, but also reminded me of how boring standing around on a parking garage for hours was 😐. That’s one of the reasons why I made the switch to being an airport bum, but it’s always nice to get some heavy metal in my gallery every now and then. But if there’s one thing I hate about planespotting at SJC, it’s trying to find the creative angles. It’s so hard to get any interesting angles here and with the new 10 foot tall perimeter fencing, getting photos from my usual spots has become much harder.
Now for the photos. Enjoy and let me know which is your favorite!
