What was your first planespotting pic?

One of my first spotting pictures from back when I was living in Frankfurt, Germany! God it feels like its been forever since I started planespotting and living there! In the picture is the Wingtip of a newly painted (remember this was 2012 so the UAL-COA merger was just 2 years old) Boeing 777-200ER flying from EDDF-KORD as UAL945! The departing plane is a Lufthansa 737-500 and the one thats poking out is a Lufthansa A321 thats a No-namer!Feel free to share your pictures down below in the comments!

The first photo I ever took with a real camera. Not an interesting angle unfortuanetly, but this was where it all started.

Taken when I went plane spotting in STL (which isn’t easy btw, but that’s a whole other topic). I believe this is United as Trans-States.

I’m not sure, but I think this was my very first one. Little did I know, that 500+ spotting pictures would follow.
