Two Hours of Spotting @EIDW 16th August

Here’s a few of my best shots from my session a few days ago. I got about 20 Ryanair so I won’t bore you with too many of them ;) Enjoy!

Airport Operations Info

Departing Runways: 10
Arriving Runways: 10


Canon 500D
55-250mm lense

1 // We begin with a Jet Airways A330-300 (M-ABLW) which has been sitting at Dublin for quite some time now but this was the first chance I was able to get of snapping a photo of it.

2 // Next up we have a TUI B737-800 (G-TAWH) after a long wait it’s great to see a TUI aircraft back at Dublin again!

3 // An Iberia A320 (EC-IEG) on final for runway 10

4 // A Laudamotion A320 (OE-IBJ) touching down with Dublin tower in the background. Fun fact Dublin tower is actually taller than London Heathrow’s!!

5 // Next up a Ryanair B737-800 (EI-EBL) lit up like a christmas tree lining up behind the landing Laudamotion.

6 // A private Cessna 650 Citation (CS-DGR) starting the takeoff roll with a FlyOne A320 (ER-00005) heading out to Chisinau taxiing in the back.

7 // A spotting topic without this little guy is a failure in my opinion. The baby of the Aer Lingus fleet the only ATR42-600 (EI-GEV) and my favourite aircraft in the world! While it might not be the best shot in the world I just have to put this little guy in.

8 // An Aer Lingus A320 (EI-DEL) arriving from Faro.

9 // A Swiss A220-100 (HB-JBH) through the bushes. The bushes are a nuisance when trying to spot at runway 10! Although I actually find them quite nice in this specific shot.

10 // And last but not least a Bombardier CL605 Challenger private jet! (EI-WFI)

Hope you enjoyed! Feedback is welcome

Beautiful photos Ryan. Seems to be a bit more traffic in EIDW lately so I might head up soon myself. The 5th one for me is really good. Keep up the good work

I love the ATR 42, EI-GEV which operates to my home airport twice daily! Great Pictures once again Ryan!

Nice pictures! Too bad the weather kind of ruins the atmosphere and the brightness.

I am wondering the same thing.


Some really nice shots with the SWISS A220 being my obvious favourite ;)

Never knew this before! Thanks for sharing!

@Sharan.Somayaji thank you very much! I’m not too sure but I believe it has been going under heavy maintenance so hopefully the aircraft might see some action soon!

@ButterMachine thanks!!

@Captain_Ry I was actually very pleased to catch that one. The first Irish registered private Jet I’ve managed to get!

@DanyyRude hahaha thanks mate :)

@Gary_Crinnion Thanks Gary! Appreciate it. Couldn’t agree more the TUI livery is stunning!

@EICK I’d highly recommend it! Traffic has definitely improved. If you’re willing to get up that early I highly recommend 9-11am. It’s not too early but you still manage to catch a lot of heavies! If you want to see the kind of traffic during that time this spotting topic I made was from around 9-11am.

@Rian_OShea thanks mate! I’ve been using it for about a month now. Much better than an iPhone ;)

@Patrick_McCormack GEV is the best aircraft in the world. Thanks!

@Kuba_Jaroszczyk Yeah it’s difficult to get good weather for spotting where we live especially now that we’re entering into the Autumn. Thanks though!

@JulianB that A220 has the best landing of the day while I was spotting! Thanks very much!

Yup Heathrow’s is 87meters while Dublin’s is 87.7! The British aviators always go quiet when I mention it in a conversation hahaha
