Hello aviators! I’m here with a new layout for all of my new spotting threads! Enjoy :)
The day after independence day is when I had the chance to go spotting but for a special reason. A UFC charter flight from Abu Dhabi was going to arrive at 1:30. With my luck, i was able to watch it along with around 40 other spotters.
The first arrival was a JetBlue A320 in the Blueberry Livery that says “Let The Blue Times Roll”. Unfortunately i got this one in a little lower quality as it arrived from Long Beach.
The next arrival was a Frontier Flower the Hummingbird from @den.aviation
The beast itself! The Etihad 77W! This big boi with its nice sounding engines had a really hard landing. Ryanair Style. Its also a UFC charter for the new “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi that you can read more about here! It also shows pictures of the cabin and flight if you scroll a bit down.
Here are my images!
My friend also had a video of it’s landing, not a landing i’d expect…
I decided to move to my cargo ramp spot to get some closeups for 20 minutes.
Here is a Southwest 737 taxiing out to 26R inbound for Albuquerque. He did indeed wave but it was 3 seconds before I could take the shot :(
Next up is a Spirit A320 taxiing to 26R for Baltimore! He gave me the stare down but didn’t wave.
Here is a Delta Connection E175 for SkyWest headed to LAX! No wave because he couldn’t see me since he decided to put his 25 inch checklist on his left window. So i just took the tail shot.
The A320 Spirit once again but with a tail shot instead!I got that ugly heat haze because its 110 degrees outside. Please don’t ask how i survived.
I end this topic with the E175 Delta Connection behind the Spirit :)
No birbs wanted to fly in this beautiful 110 degrees :( So no pictures unfortunately
