Special Birds at KLAS

I went spotting today here at Vegas with my friend Ella, (You can find her instagram at @southwest.air.luvflyer). If you didn’t know, a huge fire broke out at Mount Charleston around 15 miles northwest. DC-10s, MD-87s, and a lot of Tankers were called to the area, a few stopped by the airport. I wasn’t able to catch any :( But i was able to catch a few other things 😎


Starting off the day at 5:45PM was a little Delta A321 arriving from Atlanta. It was 4 hours delayed due to a rejected takeoff!


I waited 25 minutes for an absolute beauty! The Southwest 737-700 Louisiana One. This flight is almost never scheduled here but was put on the schedule with service to Las Vegas 2 times this week. I basically tracked this bird its whole flight from Boise, or shall i say 15 birds in total 😉🙃


Shortly after that, Missouri One decided to hop in line for 26L from Omaha


I have to thank my friend Ella for this prop she made, i definitely Luv it! 💙❤️💛 Here is a Southwest 737-800 arriving from Houston Hobby


My favorite angle iv’e taken in my life! Here is a Janet (N859WP) arriving from Alien Center 101

One of the Four FedEx (PacValley) Cessna 208 arriving from St George within 10 minutes!

I cannot leave without a picture pf a birb. This one was edited a little @Robertine @Alaska096


I might upload Photos 3, 5, and 7 to JetPhotos :) Let me know if they’re worthy enough for JP or if I need to change something 😉

These are amazing, definitely look like JP quality to me!


I really love the FedEx C208 though, one of my most favorite & used livery & aircraft in Infinite Flight.

3 and 5 will get rejected with the current crop, but it’s great quality!

I needed sunglasses for that first pic lol /s

So I looked at the last picture and the Birb for about 20-30 minutes and I have decided that they are my favorite pictures.

3 and 5 are backlit so that’s a no-go for JP.

7 you need to move up in frame and rid that vignette and it’ll work.

Yea i noticed, Its pretty hard to get backlit on 26L arrivals after 5PM since the sun is basically straight ahead

Damn you getting good
