Spotting @ KLGA from a Car Dealership

Maintenance is required on my parents’ Toyota Sienna, and while my Dad and I were at a red light, a huge chunk of MD-88 comes out of clouds on short final! All pics below! :)

The classic thumb in front of the camera. We all hate that moment.

Yeah, lol. Had no choice, btw I saw the wingtip vortices tear up the clouds 😍

Would have loved to see that.

The way it makes the lines through the clouds is completely extraordinary

It’s a dream of mine to see a Southwest 737.

I’ll try to get a pic of a new livery one, too :)

Thanks man.

Even though I don’t live too far from there, I hardly ever see them. I’m always flying or spotting from KJFK or KFRG. KFRG is not commercial, and Southwest only flies to KISP and KLGA.

Try being in the UK. We will never see one unless one needs painting.

Didn’t know they came that far to be painted :)

I haven’t ever seen an EasyJet aircraft before. Yet I’ve been to the UK.

See those in the bucket loads. The best one I saw was the Carrot A320 and the new livery A319.

Best JetBlue aircraft I’ve seen is either FDNY livery (twice on final for 22L at JFK) or 10th Anniversary livery at SJU.

I tried to make the vortices as visible as possible @The_simulation_nerd @B767fan

Now I wish I had a doughnut.

Here I am, stuffing my face with a donut, and I miss the chance of a beautiful capture. United 739 with Split Scimitars that made the most wonderful vortices :(
