Rainy day spotting at KHPN (5/25/17)

Hey guys, so today I went over to the KHPN (Westchester County) airport to spot for about and hour and a half. I spotted at the observation deck, which is a key place to spot for any avgeek, but it was a downside that the weather was so bad today, anyway, I got a wide variety of aircraft. I hope you enjoy!

N465?? at the NetJets hangar, preparing for taxi on alpha.

This also isn’t owned by NetJets, I believe

N48MF, a Dassault Falcon 2000, slowing down on Runway 34.

N281JB, an Embraer 190 at gate A3 de-boarding from West Palm Beach

N48MF on taxiway alpha to the ramp


N137EV, or ExpressJet 5141, (a beautiful CRJ-900 not to mention) pushing and starting on taxiway Alpha for it’s departure to ATL

N1881Q, a Dassault Falcon 20, departing runway 16 for Bedford

Acey 3851 slowing down from ORD


Lady In Blue Taxiing to 16 via alpha for a late departure to PBI

PSA 5104 making a 180 (instead of pushing back) taxiing to who knows where

N335VJ departing 16 after fighting a nice crosswind right after they left the ground

Bad picture of Lady In Blue departing 16 very late en-route to PBI (take me with you!)

N145QS (NetJets) taxiing on A to the ramp after arriving from Teterboro

N900CC, a Gulfstream 5 taxiing to parking from ?

Comms tower at Westchester!

Thanks for taking the time to look at these pictures, I really hope you enjoy them, and I’ll make sure to upload the pictures I get from the Bethpage Airshow this weekend!

Again, I apologize about the fogginess of some of the pictures, at some points the rain was really coming down so the shots didn’t come out nearly as well as I wanted them to… :/

EDIT: I’m also looking to get a new camera/lens for spotting, so tips and recommendations are appreciated :).


Those CRJs in American Eagle and Delta liveries are really beautiful. Not to mention JBU’s E195 😉

Awesome shots Kevin! ❤


Great photos! Especially love the American CRJ 700 & the JetBlue A320. Sucks that it was foggy that day. The pictures wouldve stood out 10X better in a clear day ;) still great though


Thanks George! They are truly gorgeous planes!


Thanks Kev, I would’ve caught the Jetblue A-320 in the Fly-Fi livery had it not been delayed. Again, sorry for the bad quality, but I come at least 3x a month, so I’ll get some better ones :).


O lol, thats a ERJ 190 not an A320. Thought that was an a320 lol ;)


That Delta CRJ is beautiful! Lovely pictures you have!


Thanks! The delta scheme on the CRJ’s are amazing!


Isn’t this the airport that Norwegian is beginning service at in November?

That’s SWF (Newburgh). I wish though.

Sorry for the bump, but I just created an Instagram, which can be found here. I’m going to try and post a lot of my pictures there that I don’t post here, so maybe you can consider following. Thanks :)
