Airports You've Been To, What Have You Seen?

Sat Aug 18, 2001 11:01 pm

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.

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

Isn't this a bit of a weird question?

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