Honestly - I was surprise how quiet it is!

I’m still mad that bum AN225 is going to Montreal and not Toronto, where they haven’t been since 2012

Glad you enjoyed it! I Found a new area to spot jets at so expect more photos

Oh for sure, I mean I’m that picture we got that beast, an Antanov, like who cares, those are everywhere these days, an MD-11, too old, a ?777?, that’s just the cargo version, weak, and another ?MD? Like so weak, who wants that…

Beach for the win!

I almost want to go to anchorage now because that spot looks epic, and you guys get a lot of heavys. Too bad it’s backlit…

Oh my friend I found a new spot where you can literally touch Runway 7L and 7R the typical landing runways I am going be at!

That’s awesome. Thats really what we lack here at Pittsburgh. It’s all woods around the airport, and the airport is kinda built up from the terrain around it (might sound weird for people in parts of the world where flat land is common, but around here in the foot hills of the Appalachian mountains if you want 2+ miles of flatness in a straight line you got to build that yourself) so unless you want to kinda half legally hike up a hill in the woods or go to a few other 50/50 legal spots the best you can do is like 1/4 miles away on the approach. Still cool, but I would love some touchdown shots…
