Spotting @ IAH 6-23 (A Typical IAH Day)

Spotting @ IAH 6-23

On the one year anniversary of Experience Aviation Day, which was held at the ExpressJet facility at IAH, I went spotting at my home airport. It was a sweltering 95°F, with some scattered downpours and sunlight in the area. It was a normal day at IAH, nothing too noteworthy, so, I present to you, a typical day at IAH in pictures.

First up, a United 787-9 departing in front of a strong downpour, which was soaking the east side of the airport. N19951

Next, as usual, Lufthansa 441 Super departing back to Frankfurt, Germany. Always love to see this flight depart. D-AIMK

Closely following the super, Air France 639 Heavy departed to Paris. F-GSQF

A United 737 departs 15L in the presence of a strong downpour to the east. N35407

Beginning the heavy UAL departures, a United 767 departs for Lima, Peru. N646UA

The second aircraft in the chain of heavy United departures was this 777-200 departing as United 880 to London. N78005

Closing out United heavies for the afternoon is United 321 to Washington. N17104

And finally, the British 747 departs to her home base at London Heathrow. G-CIVV

Thanks! Our spotting location is a dirt hill, and it’s been raised and lowered as construction continues at IAH.

I see a sneaky United Express E175 is the background sporting the new livery in this photo


Yeah! Nice catch, was hoping someone would see it! It arrived a few days earlier. Can’t wait to see her flying!


Can anyone see what that sneaky E175’s registration number/identification.

Where you able to take a photo of that aircraft besides the one you have of it?

I was not able to, it was about 3/4 of a mile away, the heat haze was bad.
