This is gonna be one long post, so, here it goes:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ -------------------------------

That's a Spirit A320S I do believe. A320 models with winglets are the new A320S I do believe.


Another shot of the A320. (BWI)


An American 737-800W (BWI)


That's a United Express (opb ExpressJet) ERJ-145LR probably. (BWI)


Another shot of the ERJ-145 (BWI)


A pretty cool visitor at BWI, the Delta MD-90 (BWI)


A Southwest 737-700W in the new livery. I didn't take a lot of pictures of Southwest aircraft, as that's pretty much all you see at BWI.


A JetBlue ERJ-190, nicknamed "Cool Blue". (BWI)


A Delta 717-200. (BWI)


Another shot of the 717. (BWI)


A Spirit A319 in the yellow Spirit livery. (BWI)


My final picture at BWI, it's another shot of the Spirit A319.

Now, here's some photos of aircraft I spotted while waiting in the terminal at PHX (Phoenix Sky Harbor):

Here we are:

That's the famous Honeywell 757-200 at PHX.


An American Eagle CRJ-200. (PHX)


A SkyWest CRJ-200. (PHX)


A US Airways 757-200W with ETOPS certification. US AIrways' (now American Airlines) 757-200s fly Hawaii routes.


My final PHX picture. It's of an American 757-200W waiting for the Delta 757-200W to pass. The registration of the Delta 757-200W is N900PC. It's a special Delta aircraft, as it was inherited from Shanghai Airlines.

Now pictures from Dulles (KIAD):

Here's IAD:

A pretty cool occasion. There's a pushback truck pulling the United 777-200. Never seen that happen before. (IAD)


A United 777-200 with thrust reversers. (IAD)


A cool visitor to Dulles. An American Airlines MD-82. The difference between the MD-83 and the MD-82 is that the MD-82 has the cool "screwdriver tail", whereas the -83 has the "round tail".


A United Express (opb CommutAir) Dash 8 Q200. Fairly common at Dulles. (IAD)


Another Q200. (IAD)


A United Express (opb Republic) ERJ-170. (IAD)


Something weird happened while I was cropping this picture. Well, it's a Lufthansa 747-400. It's a weird occasion, as Lufthansa usually has their 747-8s (747-8i) at Dulles. For some reason they're using a 747-400. (IAD)


A United Express (opb SkyWest I think) CRJ-700. (IAD)


Aer Lingus just started their 757-200 operations at Dulles. A pretty neat sight. (IAD)

And finally, prepare for the PHL pictures:

Here's PHL:

An American Eagle ERJ-145. (PHL)


A front shot of an American 757-200W. (PHL)


A side shot of an American Eagle ERJ-170. (PHL)


That surprised me. It's an American A330-300 (previously operated by US Airways). I have two pictures of it, but I decided to show you this shot. (PHL)


A cool shot of a Delta A319. (PHL)


A Frontier A321S on takeoff rotation. I've never seen a Frontier A321S before until I went spotting at PHL. (PHL)


An American Eagle CRJ-200 taking off. I have a lot of take-off videos, but I don't know how I can post them here. (PHL)


My favorite picture of a Dash 8. It's a US Airways Express (Now American) Dash 8 Q200. (PHL)


A cool shot of an American Eagle CRJ-200 taking off. (PHL)


A US Airways (now American) A321 landing. (PHL)


I tried doing a touch-down shot. It's an American A321. You can see PHL in the background. (PHL)


Another American Airlines A321 touch-down shot. (PHL)


This was a weird event. This US Airways Express (now American) CRJ-200 made a go-around. I have no clue why. It might've been because of that American A321. It was neat to see. He retracted his landing gear and continued forward. He landed on a different runway.

I have more pictures I may show you. I have to go eat. Tell me what you think of my pictures!

Great post! These are some really awesome pictures. I live near a international airport and am directly in one of the main landing paths for a lot of commercial and military flights, but i'm so close I usually only see the bellies. It is cool to see the rest of some of them.

Well, I'm back. I used a Canon PowerShot A2500 for all of these pictures.


I'm saving up for a DSLR.

Oh crap, I forgot one important picture:

That's a United Express ERJ-145XR. It's probably operated by (opb) either CommutAir or ExpressJet. More than likely ExpressJet, as CommutAir just started receiving their XRs.

The XR just means that the ERJ has winglets, and other various improvements.

This picture is from IAD.

Nice pictures kid.

The only ones I have are of me drinking on United flights.

Thanks! That means a lot (not the drinking part though... lol)!

You see that aircraft in my signature? That's a Trans States Airlines ERJ-145. I replaced the TSA titles with my website name. I have a picture of N812HK. Let me search for it.

There we are. That picture is over a year old I think. It's a TSA ERJ-145. (IAD)

That's the best part of airline travel, the free booze.

Plop me on a 787 and hand me a bourbon. I would fly to Mars at that point.

The best part is the landing sequence. The slats, then the flaps, the decreasing throttle, everything is awesome about landing! I hate takeoff.

But landing feels safe. You know what I mean? It's like you're riding on a pocket of air. I used to enjoy turbulence, but my phobias changed that.

Was there anything wrong with my pictures?

What are your favorite pictures so far?

Reply!

As long as my landings equal my takeoffs I'm cool.

I should post these on JetPhotos or Airliners.net. I'll get more responses there.

I've done better than that on flights to Ibiza partying...no pics for obvious reasons lol

To the OP, nice pics, sorry I can't contribute more to your thread than intriguing and cryptic comments.

Were you flying Columbia Air?

Yeah, well this was the wrong place to post these photos. I was just trying to post some of my work here for some discussion. It didn't work. Nobody here is an aircraft fanatic. Besides me and a few other people.

I take that back. An airliner fanatic. I'm probably the only one.

Columbia Air is not an airline. He could've flew on the following:

Copa
Avianca
Azul
United
Delta
American
LAN
TAP possibly?
