An Hour at KBOS on the First of November 2017

By: Category: AirlinesAirports Around the WorldSpotting

 

On an overcast, but mild November day, I spent an hour of so along the approach paths to runways 4L and 4R. I tried out a new spot, a bit closer to the runways' threshold. It offers a different view of the aircraft on final... my normal spot is about half a mile further west, and better for side-on photos. Still, variety is the spice of life, and this angle was new to me. The lighting was very tricky, but the overcast negated shadows for the most part, except on the bellies. All in all the selection of aircraft between 2PM and 3PM wasn't bad - a mix on international and domestic arrivals. It was fun to see the enlarged use of "belly advertising", as Delta has joined the fray with their new A-321s emblazoned with their name...Read More

"Classic", one dictionary definition would be “A thing that is remarkable, and a very good example of its kind.” This perfectly describes the Freighter Aircraft that the IFL Group flies today.

Oakland County International Airport handles a considerable amount of Business Jet and Prop traffic in addition to plenty of Freighter Action. There is also a nice observation area right next to the terminal. The IFL Group provides safe and reliable on demand aircraft charters as well as scheduled service...Read More

Spotting: Pre-Airshow London on Friday

By: Category: AirlinesAirports Around the WorldSpotting

b-737-600 Airshow London has become a Phoenix rising from the ashes, a solid, medium-sized air show that focuses on military aircraft both in the air and on the ground. The Ontario, Canada-based show had a solid history in the 1980s and 1990s as a premiere North American military aviation show, but took a rather lengthy hiatus from the early 2000s through 2016.

What is surprising is that during the Friday arrival day in the Photo Pit, those awaiting military aircraft arrivals can witness a wide variety of great civilian airplanes too. London has a modest airline presence with Air Canada and WestJet regional airliners, mainly Dash 8s and Q400s as well as a great WestJet B-737-600 flight...Read More

A whole lot of “new” has happened north of New York City. European low-cost air carrier Norwegian has launched a new style and brand of service between the United States and Europe. Beginning on Thursday, June 15, 2017, the airline began service between the Stewart International Airport, located in the Mid-Hudson Valley area of New York State and a number of European destinations. Edinburgh, Scotland is the first of five different cities that will be linked directly with Stewart...Read More
