So its my first weekend here at Western Washington Univ. in Bellingham, and am seriously thinking heading down to SEA tomorrow to do some spotting. Now, I'm no stranger to SEA spotting, however, everytime I've gone, I've always just picked an arbitrary time (usually in the mornings so I generally go to the SPU) depending on my schedual. So my question is what time exactly do all the "good" airplanes come in? the BA 744, SAS A340, United 777s, or any other heavies for that matter. Depending on what time I get up, I probably won't get down there until after noon, which means somewhere west of the airport, whethers Tyee or some place in the Burien area.

As for the "good" airplanes, the BA 744 and SAS A340 come daily in the late afternoon around 4pm, give or take a few minutes.
I've gone down several times on a Saturday morning (9-12) and have seen: Asiana 777 from Seoul, the UAL 777 from NRT, China Air 744F as well as a Tower 744F operating for China Southern and a World MD11 as an AMC charter that arrives from the Far East. There is a NWA 742 that arrives earlier, around 7am.

Thanks for info Erik. Don't think I'll be making that 7:00am NWA 742 though, since it'd require me to leave Bellingham at 5:30, haha. But I'll see what I can do. I think those Hawaiian 763s come and go pretty early too.
