Since the other thread with pictures in it is meant for pictures of high flying planes, why not have one for everything else? I enjoy taking pictures at the airport, and enjoy viewing ones that others take
Great Pictures I can’t wait until I get my camera! In the second picture is that a Jetblue flight departing??
Thanks. Its actually a Frontier A319. The only time I have seen jetBlue in San Diego is when I have arrived or departed around noon. That F9 flight was one of, if not the first flight out that day. You can see it on the ramp here:
Yup I see that now. Do you have more pictures??? If so post them.
Ive never seen a SF use the jetway for boarding. Also, how’d you get into John & Martha’s hangar? Cool!
These are all great! And I hope to see more. So my friend and I will have a layover in JFK for like an hour and a half and I hope to get that camera so do you think I can take pictures in the airport while we wait or will I get jumped by security thinking that I’m a terrorist?
Yeah, just about everything at MSP is boarded through a jetway. Deltas CRJs and Continental Express ERJs are the exception.
I was lucky to get a tour of King from a friend!
Thanks! As you can tell, I have done that quite a bit. I have never been approached about it. I am sure some people have given me different looks, and I have felt like running across the airport at times to take a picture of a plane (please note I have never done such a thing), yet I have never had any questions from any passengers, airline employees or security. In some ways, kind of wish someone would just ask me what I am doing
There are pics for all tastes.
Some I can qualify as “super”, such as USAF 27000 collection or pics of planes with special color patterns (but we have a topic for those) , others are pics that in MHO should be posted in planepictures.net or jetohotos.net, and finally, some that [to be diplomatic] are of “doubtful” interest (AA Eagle counter and luggage carrousel).
Let’s keep in mind that FA is about air traffic, not cool photography.
Top one looks like a Cessna 195. Bottom looks like a P-3 Orion.
Yes and Yes.
I was thinking 195 but I wasn’t too sure on it.
I just read Born to Fly by the PIC of the US spy plane (EP-3E) that the Chinese midair-ed in 2001 just after Bush was elected. He was based out of NUW in that same type of aircraft. I don’t see too many of the Orions.
At BTV we have a P-3 that flies around almost every week. All these pictures are great. And for Snowbird this is a general forum as long as its about aviation I think it fits in. What about the high-flyers thread you didn’t say anything then. And if you don’t want to see them don’t look thats what I do.
I pretty much knew they were correct, but I’ve learned to always says “I think” or “most” rather than “is” or “all” on these forums!
