Nuuk, Greenland

Wow! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, or even lurked, on this part of the site. But I have rediscovered the joy of planespotting…via online live feeds. My favorite one these days is Nuuk (or, in Danish, Godthåb), Greenland (GOH/BGGH). Maybe this will develop into a catchall?

Anyhow, it’s mostly served by Air Greenland, with its main fleet of Dash 8’s, a Beechcraft King Air ambulance, and a few helicopters, all predominately bright red in color with white dots. Very sleek, imho.

What I’m wondering though, is this: about 30 min ago, a black ATR-72 (?) landed. Who runs those? I didn’t get a good enough view of the titles or registration number. Sleek plane, though. Saw a DC-3 the other day, as well.

One of my favourite aircraft. I’ve got some great pictures of myself in the driving seat of an R4D (50819) at MAAM.

one of them en route across Greenland. Unfortunately not covered by FlightAware :wink:

Frustrating how iFA has its limitations like that (though I’ll admit, i have a free account. I may be missing a ton due to that.) If I were still in the workfoce, that would be a fun airport to work at. It’s no O’Hare, but it has a pleasant buzz and some interesting airplanes.

Thanks, all, for the Alsie tips. Photos of those planes look really sharp in the matte black.

It’s a limitation based on the available feeder out there.
