P-3 in Phoenix @PHX

Not gonna lie was a little surprised sitting in my math class and getting a notification saying NOAA’s P-3 would be coming into Phoenix.

Luckily with a light class load i was able to make the journey down to PHX to spot her arrival. She ended up leaving earlier this morning bound for Anchorage, AK.

Enjoy the extra shots!


barely made it in time for Imua’s departure bound for Vegas

😱 gorgeous plane! I haven’t seen it in person still unfortunately (it literally taxied past me in Vegas last week, but I was on the other side 😭), but definitely on the list of liveries I’d rush out to spot if it was coming at a reasonable time to LGB.

Nice photos, all! But scrolling down to number 10, first place is no contest, with the balance and content:

You got Four Peaks in the background (it shouts Phx), the tower and terminal with aircraft as the closer background, the exhaust turbulence coming out of that unique turboprop.

(bias: when I was in preschool we did a field trip to Sky Harbor where we explored a prop commercial aircraft, cockpit and all: this gives me flashbacks of that first time I set foot in an aircraft)

God how I wish I could see an L-188 (or a P-3 in this case) in person.

Great shots! Love the tower incorporated in the last one.
