Plane Spotting at Calgary Int’l 11/03/18 @ CYYC

Hello Community!
It’s been a while. I finally went spotting at Calgary today, and I think I got some wicked shots. This is just a compilation of Dreamliners, but below you can find a link to my Instagram where there are many more photos to come from today’s round!

What’s the hill like in terms of driving? I know there’s been a lot of melting going on so I don’t wanna get my car stuck ;)

Honestly, the new Air Canada Livery seemed weird when it was first introduced, but I like how it bears a resemblance to AC’s older colourway, sorta like a tribute to it. After time, I noticed how the black, red and that cockpit thingy matched so well together, making all the planes painted in this new libery looking very aggressive and gorgeous at the same time.

Nice pictures btw, always enjoying these spotting threads.

Not terrible. Good luck driving up cause it’s super icy but over off to the south side isn’t bad, pretty easy to drive over.

Thanks for the support everyone!

Hey man loving the shots! I live around Calgary and have tried to do some spotting at CYYC but couldn’t really get a good view. Any tips on where to go?

Cheers
