All the pictures above were taken from the blue dot shown bellow, the line shows the route the planes take from my home to the airport. (Photos are uploaded directly from the camera with no edits).

Wow these are awesome photos! I wish I lived close enough to a major airport to see big planes like those 777’s and 747’s

For a moment I thought you got a CM 737 when you tagged me :( Nice pictures though!

Well, not at all, this if “far” from the airport, I am able to get even better photos on the bridge next to the Mc Donalds at the Airport, but yes, I feel lucky to live on a place where planes pass low 🙂.
Happy Birthday!!

Well, I certainly wish I could see all this amount of planes by just sitting at home. Very good photos. Some of the best in the spotting category IMO.

PS: Not by birthday, It’s my anniversary in the IFC

Thank you very much!!

Lalo, great photos my man. I have been in and out of MMMX and yes the route in to the airport makes for great watching

Those are all amazing photos my friend. You are in a great place for spotting. It is almost impossible to pick a favorite for me. The Interjet A320 under the moon is cool, but I’m really drawn to the Super King silhouetted against the clouds. Just great pics. Thank you for sharing.

Lalo First and foremost I hope that you are ok after this magnitude 7 earthquake. I flew in to Mexico City last month and took these from the air. Maybe you can spot yourself😂

Cool pictures!
However (not related to aviation but important I would say), I hope neither you nor anyone you know was affected greatly by the earthquake!

I’m okay, really scary at the moment, I was at the university so yeah, it shaked like 100 hells and I thought the building was going to collapse but fortunately I’m okay. Thanks for caring about this.
Getting back to aviation, runway 05R at MMMX is broken and Terminal 2 is broken too. This is going to take ages to repair.
