Amsterdam

On April 2001, I was @ Schiphol @ Concourse B, In front of gate 13 to board my Alitalia flight, and I saw a Lauda Air, The Alitalia MD80(of course), and I don't remember. Then I went to somewhere like Gate 19 where there is a big window and a runway and I saw a BUNCH of KLM cityhoppers, KLM 737, Martinair 767, Martinair Cargo 747, a Maersk 737-500 and I also don't remember

Rome

At terminal C for my flight to Singapore (SQ339) and then to Seoul (SQ016 then to SFO)
I saw a lot of Alitalia 747, MD11 and American, Delta 763s, British Midland A320, a SIA 343(of course) some BA 757s, While I was on the skytrain, I saw some Alitalia Acft.

Singapore

@T2, Tons of SQ aircraft, A Philliphine 310, A lot of Silk Air, Some Malaysia Airlines acft.

Seoul Incheon

A lot of Korean Air acft. Some UA 747s, JAL DC10, JAS A300, and KE 330s.


The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

Lax was looking pretty cool yesterday. I know because I live about 7 miles from it. I saw the following aircrafts land within a few hours:

1. Qantas 744 in one of their special liveries
2. Thai 744
4. JAL 744
5. Two Singapore 744
6. Lufthansa 744

I don't have to tell you what a lovely site that was.

At SEL or ICN: As Hoons90 stated, plus several chinese and russian carriers. And, for short tip, the oldest aircraft that flys to ICN should be Mongolian B727s, formerly KE's.

At NRT: Other than full of JL/NH, there are six to eight UA 744s while five to eight NW 742s get in and out. Maybe T1 is much better to spot than T2.

At KIX: Very many NH domestics. The most significant is Ansett's 743.

At OKJ: Only KE 333 I rode, although it's a Japanese airport.

At CDG: At Hall 2F, I hardly saw more than AF whites.

At GEN: "Unidentified" jets

At LHR: I was happy to see very many "World schemes".

Well, if you went to BRS you would see DH8s and the occasional 757.  Laugh out loud


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Isn't this a bit of a weird question?

What would someone see at an airport? Giant sperm-whales? Elephants?

????
