Not my girlfriend, but my new boyfriend lives under a flight path near SYD. It annoys him when we're sitting out the back and I *spot* everything that goes overhead.

Interupts conversation etc.

Not my girlfriend, but by friends hate my ability to identify aircraft families "by ear"...I hear a plane, say "777" (or whatever I think it is) and then ask them to look up and describe the aircraft for me--I have about 92% accuracy (d*mn Airbuses all sound alike!).

My ex-girlfriend hated it!!! We flew down to Ft. Walton Beach for spring break a couple years ago to meet up with some friends, I was too lazy to drive 6 hours to Destin...I booked us on an ATR-72, when there were MD-88s and CRJs that fly down there for Delta, she was pissed when she found this out a few weeks later from friends because she was petrified of flying anything with props. But, I won $50 from a kid one time because he thought that we would fly from Brussels to Atlanta on Sabena, because our tickets had a Sabena flt. number, it was a flt. 8332 or something and rarely do flight numbers that high do not operate on a codeshare basis..besides, I had looked the flight up before we left and it said it was op. by Delta. That was nice.

Well, not sick, but airplanes are not her favorite "stuff". She already went with me to take pics around the airport but I "have" to go with her doing what she likes as well and so we don't get into troubles.

Airplanes are a part of me and as long as she wants to have me she has to accept that but until now this has not been a problem so far.

I feel sorry for mx5boy's boyfriend ;-]

And yes, an ex of mine actually said out loud she couldn't tolerate my obsession with planes and Star Trek. If she had had her way she'd have burned everything (that's about $10,000 worth!!!) and had me watching British soaps on tv instead of the adventures of Captain Janeway.

My girlfriend is really pissed because of my trips to the airports.
Couple of weeks ago I took her to BWI. We were seating on the chairs, watching planes, taking pictures etc. She got borred very fast and then she asked me what kind of notepad I have in my camera bag. I told her that I write reg numbers for all aircraft I see. Then she went thru it and found around 10 phone numbers to girls. She was so pissed hehehe
Later that day when we came back home, she was looking at some of my pictures and she found pics of women that I took while waiting for aircraft to land hehehe It wasnt much but some 'ass' close ups hehehehe
Also few days ago she found out that I went to Miami in March without her knowledge hehehe She was furious ehhehe
Now I am banned from the airports hehehe  Sad
I'm working on some kind of agreement between us that will allow me to go twice a month to airport of my preference  Smile
Of course she will have to go with me.

Nope! She loves it in fact. She's pretty much accepted the fact that this has been my hobby way before I met her and, for better or worse, decided to support it. She's getting better at spotting everyday too! We sometimes take trips to the airport just for that reason.

Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

It took a while for my fiancee to get used to it.....to the point of tolerating it, although deep down I think it still drives her nuts....=) Wonder what it'll be like during our honeymoon to St. Maarten ? =) =)

Well, she used to be... Until she made her dream come true and bought herself a horse. Now she spends more time with that horse than I ever could spend spotting...

My ex could not STAND my love of airplanes. We lived under the flightpath for SEA and I would always stop and look to see what was coming or going. Of course he just HAD to be somewhere that instant. I have not told anyone I have dated since him about my love of airplanes
My ex-roommmates just know that comes with the territory. I have pics of jets up on my desktop and have Airliners magazines from the last 4 years.
I just took my nephew to ALW to see his first Dash-8. Now he wants to see bigger planes that his uncle sees at PDX. Hehehe.... My bro just loves me now..... hehehe

I make my girlfriend give me quizzes when I'm trying to memorize checklists or study for an FAA written. She hates it but she still has to do it.  Smile

Well....I am a girlfirend of an "AIRPLANE FREAK"...I have to say that I was exposed to airplanes from the time I was little...my Uncle had an nice Cessna 170B on Floates and lived in Elliot Lake Ontario...I was in heaven flying with him to the many many lakes in Northern Ontario.

So for me, I love going to different airports and just watching the "birds" fly in & out.

I am now a student pilot and could not think of anything better to to with my spare time!!!

My last girlfriend was pretty good about my love for aviation. She even took me to the airport for my birthday. I never really annoyed her because we both had interests that we tried not to talk abou too much.

Not in my case. Susan flies bizjets for money. When she's home for a few days the airplanes keep me out of her hair. A bit odd to the younger members perhaps but when you get to your mid 40s and have been together for 10 years you don't spend so much time doing things together. She putters around in the yard trimming things that don't need to be trimmed and I fritter my time away on silly things like replacing tile that doesn't need to be replaced.

people are odd, fascinating, and oddly fascinating.

All my friends just tell me to shut up when ever I opened my mouth about planes, airports, runways etc!

We were on a trip (AMS - PRG) and I told my friend what runway we would be taking off from in AMS and landing on in PRG, He looked at me and said "You have to get out more...you sad little man"

The last girl I dated got mad about my obsession with planes, as I work with them as my job. She manages a coffee shop and doesn't bring work home with her, so why should I do that? But for me, airplanes are more than a job, they are a passion. She started to understand that. Later on she told me how she thought it was cool that I found something like that which captivated me no matter what anyone told me about it.

My boyfriend's actually very supportive of my hobby, even though he rolls his eyes sometimes when I hear a plane overhead and look up in the sky, anything from light planes to helicopters to commercial liners. Everything has to stop, conversation, walking, eating, everything!

A few weeks after we met he bought me a Herpa model plane from an Op-shop, the paint was scraping off but it's now my favourite plane in my collection.  Laugh out loud
