My picture, taken at KBMG, its home.

Or this V-22 Osprey.


My picture, also at KBMG.

Also saw a Coast Guard C-130 at KBMG but I lost the pictures to those. Got to go out on the apron and the flight crew gave me a nice tour of the aircraft inside and out.

There are some :

  • SriLankan Airbus A330-200
  • Air China Boeing B737-700 (It’s a frequent visitor to here actually, but rarely spotted as it comes around midnight)
  • China Southern B737-700 (Same with Air China, It’s rarely spotted due to very early departure)
  • Singapore Airlines Airbus A380-800 (Landed once due to the emergency, It was the biggest plane to ever land in here)
  • Malaysia Airlines B777-200ER
  • Thai Airways B747-400
  • Cathay Pacific B747-400 (Cathay used to deploy this aircraft on certain seasons, I only spotted it once though)
  • Other Indonesian Airlines ATRs and Fokkers

We had 5 An-124’s over 7 days. That was very fun. We’ve also had the An-225 here a few times before. Calgary Int’l (CYYC)

At KDEN, we have gotten a few things. A lot of Hawaiian medical diverts from the east cost, the Air New Zealand All Blacks 787 three times in two days, the first 737 MAX, Qatar Amari Flight a few times, and not uncommon to see a C-5. At my local regional airport, Rocky Mountain, we have got F-18’s, Chinooks, and a C-17 once. I was there the time of the F-18’s, pretty cool.

I remember seeing an Antonov 124 at MPTO last year, sadly didn’t take a picture of it. Also I remember seeing a China Airlines 777 in Boeing livery at the airport as well, the Taiwanese president was making an official visit to Panama. I also saw a few times the Orange Pride livery of KLM, as well some AA heritage liveries…oh and some USAF planes.
