Ryan_Gibb's Best of 2020

Hello IFC. I’m late to the trend as per usual. Exactly 15 hours and 21 minutes late to be exact. But, better late than never eh.

I only began spotting this year in February, so my “best of 2020” are mostly from within the last 3 months or so. Otherwise you’d be looking at some pretty dull shots lol. All of these shots were taken at EIDW/Dublin Airport.

Anyway without further ado;

My Favourite Shot of The Year:


One of my main goals for 2021 is to get much better and sunrise shots. I think they’re the sexiest things. N800AN is the aircraft in the shot above.

My Favourite Catch of The Year:


CS-TJR a brand new TAP A321LR in a brand new retro livery!

My Rarest Catch of The Year:

Not a rare aircraft in general but at Dublin it is extremely rare and unusual


G-VYUM 787-9 on a cargo flight from KLAX-EIDW-EGLL

Honourable Mentions:


N391UP after getting a new engine after experiencing an engine failure on departing from Dublin.

The best aircraft EI-GEV don’t even @ me

Other Shots I’m Proud of:





Anyway that’s it. I hope next year’s topic can be of much higher quality. Hopefully I get the chance to spot abroad too fingers crossed. Hope you enjoyed! I’m sure I could improve a few with some hardcore editing but… effort

Ryan, all of these shots are absolutely amazing. I adore the last Air Canada one. I have to say that I really try to make some of my photos look as good as yours but whatever I do, I can’t so thank you for challenging me. Well done

Wow. Incredible, great shots!

Now this is a cool shot!

I couldn’t agree more. You made huge progress over the year and I am highly looking forward to see more post of you in the future!
I would also probably agree with the TAP as one of the favourites, especially as the livery is just amazing, even though I very well remember one or two fantastic Lufthansa and SWISS pictures, which could take the spot as well :)

Thanks!

Haha thanks mate. Really appreciated ❤️ I was tempted to put that Lufthansa shot in but it didn’t seem to do too well in the IFC spotting competition so I didn’t put it in 😂
