Spotting at Santa Barbara Airport

Hey everyone!

@Cameron_Stone and I went spotting at KSBA for almost the whole day today. We had a lot of private jets (especially Gulfstreams) this week. It seemed like a meeting for rich people as they were all lined up together at the Atlantic Aviation ramps at one point. My pictures came out really good compared to the other times I’ve spotted! Here are some of the pictures.

This is my favorite Frontier livery! A320neo “Sunny The Collared Lizard” landing from Denver. (N310FR)

This Alaska 737-800 landed from Seattle. It was nice to see the older livery! (N537AS)

This Gulfstream 4 is owned by “Blue Sky Group Inc.” It is a really nice livery! (N368AG)

This Gulfstream 4 is owned by “Fern Aircraft LLC” (N999AA)

United E175 landing from Los Angeles. (N141SY)


United Crj-200 landing from San Francisco. (To the spotters) Do any of you struggle with taking pictures of Crj-200s? They come in super hot but are also super small so focusing and keeping it in frame is hard for me. 😂 (N908SW)

Sun Country 737-700 in the older, older, livery departing to Minneapolis. (N710SY)

Lastly, here is a Coast Guard Aerospatiale HH-65 Dolphin approaching the heli pad.

What did you think of my pictures? As always, constructive criticism is welcomed. Thank you for stopping by!
