Spotting in the Northwest @ KPDX

Hi All! Today was my first actual time that i’ve spotted with a camera in a location other then California or Nevada. I’m currently on a vacation / business trip in Portland, Oregon and had a relative of mine drive me up to the airport at around 7:45AM. Thanks to the help of some local Portland spotters, I found a spot on the short-term parking lot at PDX that gives a great view of 28L action.

I was actually supposed to capture the usual 8:30AM Oregon ANG F-15 departures but found out that their schedule would of course be changed from today to the 6th of August. I did catch them taxiing to their parking spots though. In addition, 28R closed miraculously so 28L received majority of the traffic!

A couple of Redhawk F-15C’s getting it’s ammunitions checked out before continuing the taxi to the ramp. 🦅

One of FedEx Express’ killer ATR-72’s! Flew on Finnair’s a couple years ago. Also, sneak peak of something coming up 👀

Swift departure with the propeller vortices in effect! 💧

My first time seeing Prime Air’s 763F, departing 30 minutes late, uh oh, some angry person will be complaining. 📦

I’ve just seen from here! How cool!

Meaning you were also at the airport at the same time as me i’m guessing since I was spotting at PDX until 9:25AM.
