Interesting watching ATL this morning and seeing all the inbound aircraft doing racetracks…
That should be interesting to see hope you get some pics.
3 1/2 year old post revisited?
NA PDXSpotta has SUPER slow DSL
ATL in spring and summer is fun to watch, with all the storms, reroutes, and diversions.
Always interesting to listen to them too,especially cross country flights when they are running low on fuel,we can’t hold that long,need to divert for fuel
Korean Air 747s are popular in ATL
This isn’t meant to be a racist comment in any way or to offend any residents of Atlanta but what do Koreans find so special in Atlanta is there lots of Corporate HQ’s or something?
Aside from the fact that ATL is the busiest airport in the world, with connections to, well, almost everywhere, Yes, there are lots of corporate headquarters…

…and that’s just off the top of FlyNYC’s head…
Imagine if he were to put a little thought into it…
And KAL is one of the two Asian heavyweights in SkyTeam.
Yeah hadn’t realized that also thanks. FlyNYC thank you for enlightening me about Atlanta that explains a lot.
Besides all of the business related travel…KAL also operates alot of air cargo from the South Cargo Ramp every night… (KAL245) and the pax flight (KAL35/36) operates during the day
I use to fly a C-210 into ATL 5 nights a week, at 9pm at night. It was a HUGE pain in the ass to get in line behind all the heavy iron inbound AND out. I do like that they call the Delta taxiway Dixie. And it took 2 weeks before I had the balls to ask ground what the hell a “mad-dog” was, because I was always told to follow one. HAHA the good old days.
Let’s not forget about China Airlines Cargo that flies in daily!
Also the Korean population in metro ATL is around 70,000.
