Some other Airport other than BJC or DEN! Spotting at KAPA - February 15, 2020

Hi all!

Today I went down to Centennial Airport (KAPA) for lunch/dinner at The Perfect Landing, and decided to bring my camera along to take some photos and catch some planes! I caught some planes that I wasn’t expecting, so stick around to see them!

Camera: Nikon DX with a 55-200 mm lens. My photo usage policy applies to all these photos.

Enjoy the photos!

Special Aircraft section:
These were aircraft that I did not expect to be at APA, but they were there. Enjoy these special aircraft!

Photo 7: An Ex-Delta Connection Embraer E145 (N257JQ) awaits to be made into a new Key Lime Air Embraer E145. The last time this bird flew was May 29, 2019, from IWA to here.

F-16 time!!!
These 4 F-16 aircraft took off from here and later flew over the Colorado Avalanche Game down in Colorado Springs.

The first two of a flight of 4 leave the ramp for RWY 35R for a flight of 4 down to Colorado Springs!

I love how Luke who lives up north has spotted at APA more times than I have and I live 5 minutes from APA

Thanks Deer!

I hope to go to APA more, it’s on the other side of town for me though and can be hard to get to an event to get down there, but I’ll try!

You’re probably my neighbor then, because I don’t live that far from APA either. 🤣
