Just was wondering how many of you like spotting Corporate BIZ Jets? I know everyone, such as I love Airliners, but i have also found it fun to try something new and shoot BIZ Jets.

I usually shoot out at the Denver Centennial Airport, which is the U.S second busiest Gen Aviation Airport, and i cant even keep track of how many Jets come in during the day..

Well i use the JP BIZ-Jet book for reference when it comes to spotting the Buisness aircraft. This book is awesome if you would like to know who the owners of these fin $$$ aircraft are.

Here is an example of one of my BIZ jet pics!

I hope you guys would have interest in this, because it is fun to shoot these aircraft! Just have patience when shooting these planes, because one will show up in front of your lens that will blow you away by...oohs and ahhhs.

Thanks guys

I wish there were more pictures of bizjets here. They're cool planes and I usually take a picture of any bj I see. An airport like Centennial must be great for watching them. I'm at Basel sometimes and they're a welcome addition to the lots of Crossair regional props.

Biz-jets are OK, but some of them are a bit bland and boring as far as colours are concerned. It'd be nice if they had the name or logo of the company that owned them on the side - like the KFC Challenger which has their logo on the tail (can't miss who owns that one!).

Be careful if you are tempted to photograph Biz Jets in Las Vegas in particular - I believe that there is a city ordanance prohibiting it, because the owners get upset when their aircraft are seen on corporate junkets to the gaming city!

I'm taking pictures of every Biz Jet I see.
After the pics are developed I like to search who is owner, how old is this plane etc. I have over 300-350 pictures of Biz Jets but I'm not uploading them anymore on Airliners.net.
I've uploaded 4 pictures of Gambia New Millennium Air IL-62 over 2 weeks ago when that picture was very hot and I'm still waiting for confirmation.

I do take pictures of Biz Jets now and then. But they should be of something special.

My personal favorit:

I shoot all types of aircraft, including corporate jets, turboprops and piston types.

Proper etiquette, in my view, is to not publish the identity of the aircraft owner with the photo. There is often a need for anonymity. This can be for security reasons, business reasons, or for reasons unknown to us. Photographers should respect this desire for privacy.

If, on the other hand, the corporate identity is visible in the titles on the aircraft, or in graphics applied to the aircraft, there is no need to refrain from identifying the operator.

We should also understand that leasing is very common. Even if the corporate identity is clearly shown, it does not mean that company XYZ actually owns that particular aircraft.

In this way, we will not run afoul of the owner's need for anonymity.

That's how I see this issue, which is important to anyone out there who cares to shoot corporate aircraft.

I totaly disagree with you Tomh. As long as I can see reg. numbers I can mention owner while uploading pictures. Do they run drugs that the aircraft should be misterious?
I think its very nice to see Gulfstream IV that belongs to Taco Bell Chains. Or Gulfstream V which is for private use of IBM CEO.
Its nothing wrong with that. Thats not military equipment, and it wont harm anyone if they see picture of Cessna Citation with owner name remark.

Sorry Rafal but I agree with TomH.

To blatantly publish details of the owners of these aircraft runs the risk of more restrictions being placed on photography of them. I know that that the details are publicly available, including on the web, but do the majority of the public know the details are available? I suspect not! And how many people care who own an anonymous bizjet, except their owners?

The word on the street is that it was corporate pressure that got the city ordanance passed in Las Vegas to make photography round the exec FBO illegal - lets not let that happen elsewhere.
