Spotting at KCLT!

An American Airlines Airbus A321-200 departing KCLT for MMCZ.

This trip was not interfered with by wannabe security guards.

Wannabe security?

Really nice! CLT is one of my favorite airports! I’m sure @Butter_Boi will love this!


Ah yes, the bane of plane spotting in America. Luckily rare in other countries from my experience

Some jackwagon in an airport truck last weekend told me I was “too close to the fence”, and the runway was some 500 feet away from where I was.

@thenewpilot I have never had an Issue spotting at CLT so what you are describing sounds odd to me.

I think I may have just caught the employee on a bad day.

the hill that the spotting area sits on is also higher than the fence. I wonder why anyone would need to be near the fence as well was probably weird for them as I have seen only little kids go anywhere near the fence.

Well a fence in a photo isn’t that appealing, is it?

Never have I ever in Northern or Southern operations got the fence in a photo and if I did could easily crop it.

Well I was at Wilson Air Centre.

oh so you weren’t at the spotting hill that all makes sense now. What camera and lenses do you use. The Wilson Air Center is a private aircraft hanger for GA and business jets you can see how they may have found it odd. I can give you some good CLT spotting locations if you need them though.


Love the A321! Makes me quite sad in these times to know it may be a while till the next flight, but really nice pictures! Great post, thanks for sharing!

Thanks! Me wonder what it would take for Misha or someone else to like this?

Probably right timing? Had three pretty successful (in my opinion) Spotting topics already and don’t think the team ever saw/liked them. But that isn’t the main thing, is it?

Nope. Just here to share some dope quality photos.

Great Photos, Stay safe and keep up the good work.
