Rarest aircraft you’ve seen?


#493

It’s time for an update lol. Saw a 737-200 flying for a Canadian mining company.

Also a Plus Ultra A340-300 running a charter for SATA at YYZ, it comes twice a week.

Sorry for the bad quality


#494

dang, those things are still flying???!!! I thought they all were taken out of service!


#495

It’s the same as above for me:


#496

@Charlie_Boothe yup, there’s 3 of them left.

@Randomguy12 Dang your picture’s so much better than mine. Where’d ya take it?


#497

You know the Wendy’s near runway 23? I caught it in the parking lot behind. I also hear there is a parking garage which you can go up the stairs and planespot


#498

I have had the AN-225 vist KBGR(my local commercial airport), but I wasn’t able to see it IRL because I was busy. Here is a video on YT of it landing there: https://youtu.be/PUfaMa6R9oc
it is not my video, as I have never seen it IRL unfortunately


#499

The B757 airforce 2 take off out of my local airport kavp

The Antonov 225 once came to my local airport TISX in the early 2000’s but I was too young to remember it. Recently (last Sunday) it’s smaller brother the 124 came though. Got to get up close with it. Sadly I couldn’t get out of the van because I didn’t have a badge nor a safety vest. However, it’s better than being stuck outside by the fence.


Was able to catch spirit taxiing off the runway in the last pic too.


#502

I’ve seen the fire tanker 747. As far as I know, there’s only one operational one in the world…


#503

Mine was a aliens and prisoner transport plane at atlanta when I went up there for a couple days before school started up again last summer.


#504

Honest question, why did the US add ‘Alien’ to the name and nobody cares.


#505

Well found this guy!


#506

Is that one of them UFO submarine thingys?


#507

It’s a Boeing 377


#508

At KIND, there is a FedEx 727 parked seemingly in the middle of nowhere. I did some research (because you can find this plane if you’ve ever flown in or out of KIND) and I figured out its now used as a ARFF (Aircraft Rescue Firefighting) trainer. Here’s a Pic

(I found the photograph HERE: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ataindy/ )

Now, I’m going to make an outrageous claim, that I saw the B-2 Spirit overhead. I was very young, but I had just read a book about it and I remember looking overhead, and saw this outline of that bird. It was probably something else, but Ill keep that memory close.


#509

Two of the rarest aircraft I have seen.

N424KT 1958 DeHavilland Otter DHC-3

Bell X-1 6062, Glamorous Glennis, on October 14, 1947 this plane, piloted by Captain Yeager broke the sound barrier for the first time in history.

#511

Well, when I went to Amsterdam, there passed a Douglas DC-3 over Amsterdam… I was very happy to see a DC-3 in flight


#512

I have seen an AN124 at Washington Dulles. American Airlines TWA livery on a 737.
