Planespotting at KPHL: Featuring the Philadelphia Skyline

Planespotting at KPHL: Featuring the Philadelphia Skyline

It’s been a while since I’ve made a planespotting thread. Yesterday I went spotting at Philadelphia International Airport and got some pretty nice shots, and decided to share a few here.

It was freezing cold, and windy, and couldn’t feel my face and fingers afterward… but I think it was worth it. Tried spotting from a new angle at KPHL, where you can spot the airplanes landing on 27R with the Philadelphia skyline in the background.

Here is the location:

Incredible cool pictures! I love the way you managed to integrate the city skyline, especially as the light conditions on the airplanes are really good as well. Thanks for sharing :)
