Hey! I went to San Jose International (@BigBert10) yesterday to spot, and took quite a few pictures of some various aircraft. SJC doesn’t get too many heavies, and unfortunately the only one I would have been able to capture recently canceled their flights (Hainan), but I still got some pretty good shots of some other aircraft!
I got a new camera recently, so I’m still getting used to it. These are some of the best ones I took, but I’ll hopefully improve over time!
First, an Alaska Airlines 737-990(ER) flew in from Guadalajara. This is one of Alaska’s only flights to Mexico from San Jose, but also the most popular international destination from the airport!
Next came a 15-year old Southwest 737-7H4, which flew in from Phoenix! I was hoping it was a Canyon Blue, but turns out the aircraft was recently painted into the new livery.
Last year, Delta began flying their C-Series aircraft to San Jose from Seattle and Salt Lake City, and i was happy to see that one was inbound! This aircraft, registered N125DU came in from Seattle.
As the sun went down, a lot of private jets began to fly in, including this one which flew in from New York. The aircraft was registered N650EW, and is a Gulfstream 650.
Then, I caught a Canyon Blue 737-7H4 (@Luke_Sta) , which seems to be getting more and more rare as Southwest continues to paint their planes. This one had splits, so I thought it looked really nice! This is a shot of it waiting for an aircraft to vacate the runway, before departing to Burbank.
And to end this topic is a Delta E175LR, which was scheduled to fly in from Las Vegas. However, due to high winds, the aircraft went around and diverted to Fresno. This picture is from when it was flying back into San Jose!
Thanks for viewing my topic, and I hope you liked my pictures!
