"Winter is Coming" @EIDW 24th October

Hello IFC. Here’s my best shots from my spotting session at Dublin a few days ago! To borrow a famous saying; “Winter is Coming.” Unfortunately there will be no more sunny lighting at Dublin until next summer rolls around so get used to it haha. Enjoy!

1 // First up is a Turkish A321neo (TC-LSD) from Istanbul. Turkish Airlines have only recently resumed their service after suspending it due to the pandemic. I only just arrived on time for this guy!

2 // Next we have a shot of a Ryanair 737-800 (EI-EVK) which I thought deserved to be included.

3 // Similar to Turkish Airlines, British Airways have only recently resumed their London Heathrow service at Dublin due to suspending the route as a result of the pandemic. On Saturday it was flown using an A320neo (G-TTND).

4 // An American Airlines 787-9 (N823AN) bound for Dallas!

5+6 // An Air Canada 787-8 (C-GHQQ) breaking the 50km/h speed limit in the old “toothpaste” livery!

7 // A Beech B200 King Air (M-SPOR)! A very unusual catch for Dublin Airport.

8 // A beautiful Qatar 777-300ER (A7-BAS). Yet another pilot breaking the 50km/h speed limit!

9 // An Etihad 787-9 (A6-BLO) in the choose Thailand livery. This bad boy had a very hard landing…

10 // And to finish us off another Boeing from Qatar this time as a 787-8 (A7-BCU)!

And that’s all for today! Thanks for reading. Be sure to let me know which one was your favourite. Mine would have to be number 6!


Awesome pics!

Winter is coming? I am here freezing with my light jacket, I started wearing both a scarf and a hat by the last week of September. The winter seem to start here early. 🥶

My favourites though is the crystal blue Air Canada and beautiful Etihad 787’s. These are amazing catches despite the boring weather outside. Amazing colourful liveries.

I hope to see more older paintings of the AC 787 before they get repainted. They do look more beautiful IMO. 🇨🇦


Amazing shots as always Ryan. I love the Turkish A321NEO. Brilliant catch. Man I cant wait for level 5 to be over so I can go spotting again. Well done mate
