So I decided to go planewatching tonight. It is going to be a few days since I can go planewatching since I'm going up to the Soo this weekend.
As I was heading to Metro Airport, I saw this guy setting up to land at Willow Run. So I had to stop to get pictures.
I kind of had a good spot to get a decent headshot.
It wasn't a great spot for the full on beam shot though.
And then I headed over to Metro Airport. I was hoping to catch a 747 but first I caught this A320 that was arriving from Minneapolis.
An MD-88 coming in from St. Louis.
A CRJ-700 arriving from Indianapolis.
An A319 coming in from the city of Brotherly Love.
A 747 races an Airbus.
This 747 had a weird track on Flight Aware. It left Detroit at roughly 5:00PM and was supposed to head to China. It had some kind of issue and had to return to Metro Airport after flying a few circles around northern Michigan. The circular pattern was so that it could burn some fuel to get under the maximum landing weight.
I hope everything is okay with this plane.
A DC-9 arriving at Willow Run from Laredo, TX. This particular plane was built in 1966 and that makes it older than me.
A CRJ-900 arriving from Dallas.
A CRJ-700 coming from Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma City.
A CRJ-200 flying in from Escanaba, MI.
A 737 that arrived from Denver.
An MD-90 arriving from Milwaukee.
Another MD-90 arriving from Florida.
A 737 that came to us from Atlanta.
A Boeing 717 coming from New Orleans. I think it was pretty cool that I was able to catch the strobe light.
