I got to see a good amount of arrivals and departures on the 6's today, despite rainy weather early on. I caught a United 757 and a Frontier A320, as well as lots of the standard CLE visitors

Today I got really lucky, i got to see a 747-400 from Dubai, an unmarked 737-300 operated by Sky King, and some other cool planes from the Restaurant parking lot. The 747 is in town for a Cleveland Clinic visit, I think. This is my first time catching a 744 landing at CLE! There was also and FAA King Air doing some pattern and approach testing.

Today I made another trip to ORD, this time spotting arrivals on runway 14R (and a few on 10). I didn't see as many heavies as last time, however I did see the Cargolux 747-8, as well as an American 777 and a few others. I also saw one of Alaska Airlines' special liveries, as well as 2 from American Eagle, and a lot of SkyWest planes.

Right now I am on vacation in Chicago, so I made a stop at O'Hare Airport to catch some heavies that never come to CLE. I saw 6 different 747s (Including a 747-8 from Cargolux!) and lots of A330s, A340s, 767s, and 777s. I also saw some familiar visitors such as ERJs, CRJs, and others. Be sure to check out all my photos!

Did some great spotting out on the south end today, from the Aerospace Pkwy hill. Caught a good variety of planes including the rare Allegiant Airlines MD-87, a tiny Eclipse 500 bizjet, and of course a United 757. There was also a little Piper Cherokee which is unusual at CLE.

Today I went spotting down at the south end of the field in the Aerospace Pkwy lot. After catching some arrivals on 6L (including a Delta A320) I switched over to the parking garage to watch some ramp action and departures.
