Hey everybody! Intro: Today I went to my local BWI for a little bit more than an hour. The strong winds out of the west caused the uncommon arrivals on runway 28. The departures were also on runway 28 at the same time. The weather was fantastic, albeit cold because of the 20 kn winds. The location: A new location for me, a parking lot right next to the western cargo complex. Usually I would spot on Matthison Way, but there was no room as a new cargo ramp is being built there, so the area was blocked off. I climbed on top of a crate in order to not have any blockage from a fence.
Wow, BWI of all places. I don’t see N8301J in the photos though, that aircraft doesn’t wear the heart livery. EDIT I see the registration, why is N8301J in the heart livery. That’s the warrior one aircraft SWA’s first 737-800. Why would they paint it I thought they were the ones that said it would remain in the Canyon blue livery!
Great shots! It was actually funny because In our BWI Group PM I forgot what time you said you were going to spot so when I was approaching BWI for Southwest Virtual to choose a runway, I saw the exact same flights on Flightradar24. I think we need to get the group together and go spotting once in the evening to catch the heavies! Great photos
Time for the mass response… @Balloonchaser@MrMrMan@Trevor_A@KPIT Thank you all very much! I appreciate the support! @The_Geniusman What day? Maybe I could try to come? @Cbro4 Thank you! The camera was my trusty Canon EOS Rebel SL1. @Luke_Sta@JeromeJ I did not know that was Warrior One in IF, that’s too bad they re-painted it! @Plane-Train-TV That is what I am trying to do! There are lots of members from around here, it would be great to have a get-together.
However, yesterday’s spot would not have been a very good spot lol
