I was up close and personal with a BBJ today as he climbed though my altitude. His tail number is masked in FlightAware but he called himself Boeing ***BB. BB departed Burbank at 12:29 pm on 8-18. FlightAware shows the aircraft as a 757 but I thought it was a 737 going to Monterey. Can any one help me with a BBJ ending in BB? Blue vertical stripe on the tail.
In the screen capture I’m in Red the BBJ in Yellow climbing though my altitude. I was VFR at 9,500.
Clearly N770BB (AKA Air Force 2) based out of Burbank. A close friend of President Clinton. Wonder why the 737 based out of the same airport went to North Korea? Range? I’d be a lousy witness because I thought it was blue and white but this is clearly the paint scheme.
I shot that 757 last year and even after enlarging and Photoshopping I still couldn’t see a registration. Eventually figured it out by a process of elimination using a combination of airliners.net and FA.
