Welcome back A380! Spotting in Houston (KIAH)

Welcome back Emirates A380! Spotting in Houston on 6/22 - 6/23.

Long time no see, and welcome back to my spotting topics. I haven’t been able to spot in awhile, but I was finally able to spot over the weekend with several of my friends. Anyways, since the new rule of 10 photos, I have decided to show y’all my 10 favorite photos from that weekend. Enjoy!

2 United 737s about to taxi out for departure. You can see that the one in the from is a 737-9MAX, which is the newer type of 737. The one in the back is a 737-900ER, which is an older version of the 737.

IAH will gladly welcome back the regular 787 from ANZ after many engine issues. The “All Blacks” livery is becoming a very common sight at IAH.

Not the best picture, but I thought that you would like to see it since I got hanger access a few days ago during a tour provided by Experience Aviation Day!

I hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Naturally I messed up NZE, my pan on the 787, didn’t get AF, got a couple out of focus, and didn’t try to pan some of the ones you did but enough complaining those are nice shots lol.

Awesome photos. I love the Air New Zealand 787! It looks so good in the All Blacks livery.

New rule for Spotting Category


10 photo limit, but there so good its a shame its only 10! Great job on these photos, I wonder if Qatar will send a380s?

@JRRaviation I think you messed up your description in pic 8…
The one in back is the 737 MAX 9 while the one in front is the 737-900ER (You flip-floped them)

Ah so you’re the one who decided to point that out. Just look at how observative you are. I’m so proud of you.

Thank you! I appreciate your kind words.

No wonder they had 777s instead of a380s in fall 2017
