Most of them were from John Wayne... @KSNA 02/15/21

Hello everyone!

Hello everyone, I hope you’re having a great day! I’m so excited to show you all the pictures I got today and I hope you thoroughly enjoy them. The pictures I took were all taken from John Wayne Airport (SNA/KSNA) on the 15th of February, so last Monday. These were taken near the Lyon Air Museum with a ladder to see over the fence. It was a really nice day with some clouds floating around, and the pictures turned out pretty good. If you have any tips about the photos or editing, please let me know! I hope you enjoy them…

Of Course! There are a bunch of private and FBO aircraft at SNA, I’m sure I’ll be able to catch it sometime or another.

Yeah, that one turned out really nice. It’s my favorite along with the SWA737-700

If I forget my camera, I guess I can try to spot with an iPhone 7…

So we could hang out and eat Japanese food…yum yum. Don’t need a camera to spot, but bring a chair, eat some udon, and watch the planes.


Talking about food is making me hungry… I haven’t eaten yet. I guess I have to go

@bbrockairbus I haven’t flown on JSX, but I’ve heard good things about them.

@Jacob_Layton I actually have only seen one Allegiant, and it was while I was driving away from the airport…
