I am booked and confirmed on Flight 1659 OAK-SNA. I have a feeling this is going to be a 737NG but was told that it "was not listed" by the rep. talking to me. Does anyone know of any good seat rows to look for for shooting out windows?

One thing I have learned when trying to take window shots is not to stress out about what seat you get. In the end, 95-96% of them will turn out poorly, with the dirty windows and specks of frost that form on the window anyway. Just pick a window seat, if its a filthy window, move really quick, take some shots and enjoy your flight, don't overstress about where you sit. One other thing is that sometimes sitting over the wing can provide nice angles. Especially if the plane has winglets, so you should be able to get some good shots regardless.

I usually like to be a little behind the wing for my window shots.........you get a nice angle on turns and can incorporate the wing in the shot without having your view blocked by it. Getting a clean no wing shot of an airport is also possible if you want to shoot without a part of your aircraft in the photo. Window shot rule #1 for me is to shoot as many as possible on takeoff and landing, then pick the best of them to upload. Check out my window views to get an idea of what I am describing..............Cheers, Anthony Russo

I'm doing a one way to meet up with my girlfriend who's driving back on Sunday. I'm too cheap to fly back so I'm driving. My sister goes to UCI so this won't be my only trip down. I'll give you a heads up next time I'm down there.
