Santa Barbara Airport Spotting (KSBA)

Hello there!
Yesterday I met up with two newer spotters from the Santa Barbara Area for about 3 hours. The SBA spotting community is getting bigger and bigger (as I say that, we have like 6 spotters) πŸ˜‚. Here are the photos.


Contour E135 | LAS-SBA | N16511


Sun Country 737-700 | MSP-SBA | N713SY


Alaska 737-800 | SEA-SBA | N584AS


United A319-100 | SBA-DEN | N816UA


Alaska 737-800 | SBA-SEA | N584AS

Alaska 738


This is from earlier this year. I wanted to get the threshold reflections with the newer livery, but it wasn’t as good.

Thank you! I was glad I finally caught the 737-700 without winglets. Sometimes Sun Country sends the 737-800 which is pretty weird. That is next on the list to catch for me.

Nice pics! I believe the first pic of the Alaska 737 is a -800, not a -700πŸ˜‰

Are you a UCSB student? If you go to the 8th floor of UCSB library you can see a lot

Thank you! SBA is a cool little airport, more spotters come to SBA which is exiting.

Thanks! I love making colors more vibrant when editing, I’m glad you noticed!

No, I am in high school. I’ve been to the UCSB library before though. I might have to check that out!
