I have been continuing to go through the massive amount of photos from my recent aviation-centered trip to Pittsburgh, and today I am ready to share the shots from my second (and last) day of spotting at KPIT. All of these were taken from a small park next to the Allegheny County Emergency Services Center (
@KPIT), which sits slightly to the south-east of the airport and has excellent views arrivals and departures from 3 different runways (10R/28L, 10C/28C, and 14/32). We stayed for about 3 hours and caught tons of both arriving and departing aircraft, as they switched from the 28s to the 10s about a third of the way through our session. Once again, I’ve narrowed them down to the ten best and have done some editing to make them look better. I apologize if the photos aren’t the highest quality, I don’t have the best camera at the moment. Enjoy!

Last week I flew down to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to visit some family. While I was there, I was fortunate enough to do tons of aviation-related activities including going to an airshow, planespotting, and taking my first flight lesson. Over the next month, I will be making several topics showcasing photos from the different experiences I had. This is the first.
These shots are from my first day of spotting at KPIT. We found really good places less than 100 yards from the end of the …
Nice Photos! Loved the PSA livery.
Nice pictures. Looked like a great blue day! 🏙
Nice pictures! Ive flown to PIT a couple times and its been a great experience.
Not going to lie, I think you came to the wrong place for an aviation related trip…
I absolutely love this shot, Really shows off the smile of the A319!!! Well done, thanks for sharing!
Also I think you want to tag
@KC3DLL about this one, not me… 😂
Thanks for the tag though! 👍🏻
Well, it was kinda my only option (that’s where my family lives). Wasn’t bad at all though, I got to see an airshow in Cleveland, do a flight lesson, and go spotting.
So the coolest part of your Pittsburgh aviation trip was in a rival city? Cool… 😂
But where did you take the lesson? Just curious…
You asked to be tagged about that location here…
Tag me when you do, I’ve always gone further up the road, but I’ll have to try that out next time…
My flight lesson was at KPJC. You can read about it here:
While I was in Pittsburgh earlier this year I was able to do many aviation related activities, but by far the most exciting thing I did was take a 3 hour flight lesson in a Cessna 172!
Although I have been obsessed with aviation for 10+ years and have been doing flight simulation since 2014, before this I had never experienced any real life flight training let alone flown in an aircraft smaller than a CRJ-200. My family was aware of how much I wanted to do something like this, and,…
I suppose I did, I just said you might want to tag
@KC3DLL because he works there I think…
I know he’s a dispatcher, and I think they work there, but I could be wrong…
