Spotting IAH Arrivals (6/1/2018)

June 1, 2018 - George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH)

Hey y’all! On June 1st, I was able to spot at IAH. On the first day of June, Emirates was scheduled to resume A380 service to Houston after almost 2 years of 777’s. Air New Zealand’s “All Blacks” 787-9 Dreamliner paid a visit after being grounded for 6 months straight! The Qatar OneWorld 777-300ER also arrived. Sadly, I had to leave at 2:30, with all the good stuff mentioned previously arriving around 4:30.

The lighting in the summer in Texas can be harsh at some times, especially in the morning to noon time frame. The sun is almost directly above the subject making it hard to get a picture with good lighting. Editing helps! I recently installed the Nik Collection by google to help with my photo editing. It is extremely useful and it’s free! So, with that being said, here are the pictures!

I arrived at the airport around 10:30, just missing UA100, the Sydney to Houston route on the 787-9. That’s alright though, it was made up to me by a surprise visit from Emirates SkyCargo!

My eyes aren’t worthy to such greatness!

You really have talent Matt! I would expect nothing less.


Thanks Cole! I found a new spot along the runway, but you can only go there in the summer, because it’s not backlit. And backlit photos (in my opinion) don’t look good.

@Baxy380 Thank you!

@TheCoolPilot I love the PrimeAir livery, especially the blue.

@anon7075715 Thanks bro! It’s all about practice! Practice shooting anything really. I’ve also gotten tips by more experience photographers in the past as well, so that helps!


That stinks. Hopefully you’ll get them next time. Great photos! I really like the Prime Air 767 😂

Of course you do…if I lived where you did, I’d get tired of the livery! 😂
