It's been a while since we've had one of these, and we've had quite a few new faces over the years, especially those who are insiders or experts in their respective fields, so why not get to know each other again, in a politically neutral thread
I'll start off
Name: Zach K
Location- Shibuya, Tokyo (I hail from Cincinnati Ohio but have more connections now in PHX)
Occupation- 3rd year student, Sophia University. I also help run the PHX Spotters page (I'm in charge of the Airlienrs wing of PHX Spotters, and recently have been collecting aviation fans from all over Japan to join the page. If you wanna join, just search us on Facebook!)
How I got into Aviation: Unknown. It's been in my blood, I guess. My birthmom is (was? not sure if still is) a USAF pilot, so I guess that's how I got interested. But I don't plan on being a pilot lol
Camera used for spotting (if applicable) I use a Nikon D3200 with a variety of lenses.
Favorite Airline: Well, I've only flown AF and DL, but I love the business model of NH.
Favorite Airframe: Boeing 787 of course But I am not biased between Airbus and Boeing. I love the 346 and am falling in love with the A350 too
Other "Fanships:" I guess I'm a railfan here in Japan, but not much of one. I also follow hockey extensively, along with baseball. I am also a craft brew connoisseur.
Other Info: Self-proclaimed Japan expert (even though I have lots to learn.) I also play Ice hockey, and used to teach guitar and piano when I was in Arizona. After college I hope to either find a job working for Boeing between their offices in Japan and Arizona, or some other company that has offices in Japan and PHX. Eventually my buddy and I wanna start an importing company. If the market gets back in order, I have a dream of starting a cargo airline
How about you guys?
