Hi IFC, recently I went to Lambert to go plane spotting, all photos were taken at the Terminal 1 cell phone lot by runway 29.
American Mad Dog lineing up at Runway 29.
A different Mad Dog taxing to 29.
Delta MD90? Lining up at 29.
The MD90? After liftoff, (notice windsock too)
An American MD88, with a C208 in the background.
Southwest 737 departing out of one of the 30s.
United E135/E145? Taxing to 29
So then, this lady saw me taking pictures and came up to let me know that her husband is an Air Force pilot based at Scott AFB, and he would be coming in for pattern work, so any of the aircraft in the below livery are from that.
United States of America VIP 737 (RARE SIGHT!)
E135/E145 from earlier lining up 29.
Beautiful glint off the AA Mad Dog
Second pass of the VIP 737

Odd, Southwest 738 in Canyon Blue but has splits and the new winglet livery.

Delta CRJ 900?
Another pass, showing off slats/flaps detail.
Yet another pass.
Southwest California One!
Last picture of the day, Delta 717.
Alright everyone, this was my spotting! KSTL does not have any super good locations but I was lucky they were using the 29 for takeoffs today.
I was also extremely lucky that the Air Force 737 was here today doing training, they do not show up on Flight Aware and is not something you can anticipate. Very rare sight!
Lastly, thank you for looking through these pictures, sadly KSTL does not have the air traffic it once had, however today I got really lucky. Let me know of any suggestions that I could do next time.
I am not into cameras that is really all I know.
