Is anyone familiar with which runway UPS typically uses for arrival at KMHT? I know that arrivals are largely based upon wind, but I thought UPS may use runway 35 because of its proximity to the cargo ramp. Thanks, in advance, for your help!

They can certainly request any runway they wish; whether or not requests are approved are a different story.

When planespotting at MHT in college we would always end up driving around back and forth because if the wind is calm it's usually pilot's choice to land on either 6 or 35. Runway 6 is a little shorter and 35 is probably also a bit more convenient for taxiing in for most planes, but it requires a little bit more of a base leg while 6 is straight in. Thus leading to a frustrating situation with a bunch of us and our scanners and cameras and binoculars.

I can totally understand that. I was parked at the aviation museum adjacent to 35 for about an hour, and after watching a lot of traffic (ok maybe a lot is a bit of an exaggeration for MHT  ) I noticed that most of the arrivals from 1:00pm to 7:00pm chose to land on 6. I also spent a couple hours at the hill close to the church snapping pics adjacent to 6 and even had a run-in with some local cops, maybe that's deserving of it's own thread. There were a few G.A departures and a couple of UA and US arrivals and departures at 35. I noticed a large aircraft arriving on 6, and it happened to be an FX a300. I rushed over to the opposite runway assuming that the UPS flight would also arrive on this runway, only to see it arrive at 35    Luckily I did get to snap some pics of the same FX a300 that arrived earlier, departing from 6. It's quite a treat to see these bigger birds at MHT. So I can totally understand what you're talking about
