Tropical Planes @ PHNL, PHJH

In continuation of my last HNL spotting topic, here’s a few more shots from my time in the Hawaiian Islands. Many of the shots from that and the PHOG topic were uploaded at 30-60% of the original quality so I’ve had to re-edit every shot, these should be in much higher quality.

Hawaii in general is a place I travel to about every year, so I’ll be excited to re-visit HNL sometime in the near future!


A reflective ramp and stunning 717!


One of the RAAF’s goofy E-7 Wedgetail banking off of 08R.


One of the several Japan - Hawaii flights.


This one made an appearance of the other topic but might as well share the one other shot I have of it.

fall-winter spotting in HNL is beyond mid for it’s lighting.


Hawaii ANG doing some rather rare departures off 08L.


As for Lahaina, there’s only about 3-5 scheduled flights daily, here’s one of them leaving for Honolulu! Lahaina / Kapalua Airport is a very chill airport on the western side of Maui, ATR’s for Ohana Airlines used to fly into here but unfortunately they’re no longer in service.

I checked out the terminal and went out on the ramp, no planes out there when I went though sadly.

That’s awesome! Idk if they still keep someone up there but a family friend use to work up there and got to ride with the airport firefighters as well
