Spotting in my backyard!

Hi, I decided not to go to KORD today and instead just walked outside with my camera and took some photos of the planes arriving on 10C

First, we have a United 777-300ER from Tokyo

Second, we have a flying pencil aka the 757-300 from Denver

And last but certainly not least, we have a China Cargo 777F from Anchorage with the moon in the background

Thanks for viewing! See you next time!

Correct lol, I’m doing the same thing tomorrow but all day so I can get every good plane, also I’m probably going to the airport this weekend so I’ll get some really nice photos

Nice shots! What altitude are those planes flying at?

It doesn’t get much better then this! Spotting in the backyard just sounds incredible!

Here in the north suburbs, it’s too far from Ohare to get the planes at good altitude, I’d assume you are from the west suburbs, great photos! I really wish I could do this from the comfort of my backyard!

I wanted to do a flight from ORD but my iPad kept crashing, and then my joystick app practically passed away on me, so I didn’t bother.

Great shots! Where I live in the northwest suburbs they pass over at around 10,000FT.

The last photo is a nice realistic moon shot instead of someone in IF!

I Challenge someone to recreate this shot of the moon and the plane in IF!

they pass over ranging from 5,000 to 2,500 feet, sometimes when a 748 or just a big plane is really low, it wakes me up at the middle of the night because of how loud they are.
