Military charters + a RARE MD-11!

Hello everyone! Hope you enjoy these shots!

2 days of spotting for today at SJC!

Day 1

One of THREE of Alaska’s 737 MAX 8’s!

The first of 3 military charters that SJC gets every year! Sun Country 737-800.

Military charter #2! National Airlines A330-200!

And the final military charter, a pretty rare Eastern Airways Express 737-700.

Day 2

Here is my first catch of the JetBlue A220-300, landing into the final minutes of daylight.

The GORGEOUS Canyon Blue Southwest 737 MAX!

Finally, the first flight of a brand new regular here at SJC! A Fedex MD-11, also my first catch of any MD-11. Hope you enjoy the videos too!

thank you!

I was just about to see one land in Indianapolis airport ( a FedEx MD-11) but my plane turned and my view was no longer facing the runway but the rumble I heard from the thrust reversers is a rumble I hopefully won’t forget. It shook the whole plane! Nice pictures @rgaviation, I hoped you enjoyed the MD-11 arrival and departure. I love the sound of the older generation of engines before the new generations of high bypass engines came out with the likes of the NEO having them.
