Special Spotting Saturday At Phoenix! @KPHX (Obviously)

Heyooooooo IFC! How’s it going fellow aviation enthusiasts! On Saturday, I woke up, looked at FR24 for Departures for that day, saw that there were 6 good specials within and hour and thirty minutes, begged my parents to take me, annnnnddd went spotting. I saw 4 new specials I’ve never seen before! It was also a warm 85 degrees that day or roughly 30C (correct me if I’m wrong) which is above average for November.

Anyway enough talkie talkie and more spotty spotty!

First up is a backlit Cali One 😕

Next up is a sorta backlit SWA 738 (seriously if you wanna edit these, please do)

A SWA 737 still wearing the Canyon Blue livery ready for pushbacc @Luke_Sta

First special today is JetBlue’s Honoring New York Fire Department livery, a very cool one to see!

Back to back specials landing on 26! This one is WestJets Frozen Livery

6th up is a United A319 seconds after landing

Next we have an American A321 smoking a lil bit

8th today is Alaska’s “Salmon-Thirty-Salmon” livery departing for SEA which my good buddy @robertine spotted landing at SEA!

Here we have Delta’s 767-400 with daily service to Atlanta!

And for number 10 today we have a Smokey Canyon Blue after a flight from DEN. @Luke_Sta again lol.

And that’s it for this one! I have a few more pictures so let me know if you would like to see another topic on them! Sorry for the backlit photos the winter sun isn’t the best.

As always, which was your favorite?

Cool pictures! Crazy that PHX has the demand to use the 764!

Yeah I was wondering how PHX, an American hub, can support the demand for a sky team airline.

Wow! So many special liveries, great shots!

Thank you! It’s only fairly recent. Delta has like 7-8 flights a day just to Atlanta so it makes sense.

Yeah, Delta like dominates flights to Atlanta from here

Wait that’s it? SNA has like 4-5 757s a day there
