The Life Of A Spotter

By: Category: Spotting

Cathay Pacific-777 Do you ever find yourself getting distracted by the sound of a jet passing overhead while talking to a friend or co-worker?  Do you ever find yourself driving 20 miles out of the way to where you’re going just so you can pass by an airport?  When a friend tells you that they are travelling somewhere, do you ask them what airline and what kind of planes they’re flying on, and what airport they’re connecting through? Do you ever find yourself trying to make out the registration number on an airplane in a movie you’re watching so you can figure out if you have seen it in real life? If you can answer “yes” to more than one of the above questions and many more like them, then chances are you live the life of a plane spotter...Read More

PHXSpotters visit Los Angeles (LAX)

By: Category: Road tripsSpottingUncategorized

  The spotting trip started like any other trip. An Idea, someone thought it would be a great idea for the group to head out to Los Angles (LAX) for the weekend. That is how this idea turned out to be the best spotters trip I have been involved with. We started a post in our forums and the next thing I knew there were members already announcing that they wanted to go. So let the planning begin; now it’s not the easiest thing to do. So day one, Jason Bong and Peter Van dyke and Jason Knapfel head down on Thursday morning on the first flight out to LAX. This was kind of special me since this was my first trip on a 757-200. I got to sit up front in 6C. I tried to get bumped to first class but that section was full...Read More

JAL visits Phoenix Airport 3-22-2012

On March 22nd 2012, Phoenix International Airport had a special visitor arrive at 10am. Japan Airlines (JAL) brought their Boeing 777-300 (JA736J). The airline was chartered for the Seattle Mariners to fly them to the 2012 Open Series Japan. They will be playing against the Oakland A’s. It is a special treat for us at Phoenix when we get to catch a couple photos of a Boeing 777. PHXSpotters members had the coverage all over r the various spotting locations thought out PHX. We had members at T2, T3, T4 and 40th street.  We had a couple members out on the ramp for the 1pm departure. Kyle Boyd caught a great photo of the JAL 777. He was located just west of the airport when he clicked his shutter. They will be returning to PHX on the 30th of March.
