Today I woke up and saw… “hey damn, it’s pretty humid out there! Why not go plane spotting?”
I thought it would be good for condensation trails and water splashing.
It wasn’t very good…
As I pulled over next to the little mound of frozen garbage that I usually spot by, I saw a dozen other spotters all in line, putting my equipment to shame.
Here we go!
Air France 777-300ER from… Cayenne I think (I don’t remember)
United 787-8 from ORD with a beacon shot!
This topic isn’t finnished yet :P
An Air China 777-300 from Pekin right as the sun popped out
Another Air China flight from Pekin but this time it’s an A330 and it’s 6 minutes late but it made some nice spray which made it worth the cold
A tiny spotter, and a massive 777
A Turkish A330 celebrating pride month with a 6 month delay (which is usual for Turkish Airlines)
Here I got absolutely sprayed for 20 minutes. Rain, wind, hail, you name it, it was there.
End of intermission
A brand new Air France A220 (it is not a CS it’s an A220) landing just in time to be added to IF!
It’s over for now. Here I had to go in the car and pour some water on my hands because RaYNaUd but I’ll be back soon with some more shots!
To conclude, this was a very nice spotting session despite the cold and rain. After all, if you want to get spray, you have to be sprayed ;)
And if you want to spot in Europe, you need to have a permit and know how to climb piles of trash!
