Is Your Home Under An Airway?

Wed Jul 09, 2003 3:45 am

Mine is more than wanted! I live 20 miles or so from EZE Intl. Many times a day I can see planes at different altitudes and headings (only one at the time, this is not Chicago!).

Some times they change heading almost above my house. This happens often. I wish I were under an intersection; let's call it LANUS (my city) Intersection (ha ha ha).

My house is under several airways. The lowest is V-348 and overlapping that, the DYLIN 2 arrival into EWR, which has an assortment of jets passing over my house at 9000'.

Over that, there's J-230 which comes out of RBV (Robbinsville) VOR heading to AIR (Bellaire). Jets on this airway are usually coming out of JFK off of the RBV transition and heading to the west coast or southwest; I've also seen the Concorde on that route going into IAD a few years ago.

To the east, I can see all aircraft going into LGA on the KORRY 2 arrival over western central New Jersey.

To the west, I can see 4 parallel jet airways all heading southwest from New York City, BOS, and dozens of DL, VS, BA, and other transatlantic westbound flights throughout the afternoon heading to their destinations.

Military planes from Willow Grove NAS/JRB (5 miles from my house) often fly over on training flights in pairs or 3s, including A-10s, C-9s, C-130s, P-3s, C-5s, etc.

The icing on the cake is the constant general aviation traffic on the edge of Philadelphia class B airspace just to the south. There are 47 (fourty-seven) airports, public and private, within 22NM of my house.

The view on a clear night is amazing!

I live 2 miles out of CLE and planes approach over my house every minute plus you have the paraell runways so one plane can be landing on one runway while another right next to it it looks awesome!

Interesting!

There are only two Concorde flights a day - one from New York and one to New York!

My new home has arrivals for ORD's 4R fly over at about 6'000 ft.

I live fairly close to the MHT VOR and DRY NDB, and about 5 miles (as the airplane flies) from the airport. I see them passing at high altitudes overhead,
aircraft outbound from BOS making left turns at 14-15000 feet, and arrivals
to 35/departures from 17 turning over our house at about 2-3000 feet. I love
it (though right not 17/35 are shut down). Great fun with a scanner.

Sometimes you can see planes WAAAY overhead.

When I am sitting in my garden, I can see most of the planes which are approaching DUS and DTM, too bad that I don`t have binoculars, than I could read the registrations, maybe I should buy some.

I live about 40 miles east of JFK and I see planes coming from Europe going to land at JFK. When they are near my home they are kind of low (you can see the airline and type of plane easily with binoculars)

I also live about 5 minutes from ISP. When planes use runway 15R/33L for take offs or landings the plane go directly over my house. The planes are only a few seconds from the runway when they pass over my house.

I'm living right underneath the approach path of ZRH's Rwy28. From my home to touchdown, it's about 7 miles.

Higher up, I can also see departing aircraft from Rwy28 after they have made a u-turn, heading east.

I live right in between the approaches for the 18s and 17 at MCO about 2 1/2 3 miles out. I would guess the planes are at an altitude of 800-1000 feet up. They are low and loud, thats all I can say.

Please read, and understand, my contribution.

The last BGI Concorde flights will operate on Sat on the last week of July to the last week of August!

The one flight, there and back, on the JFK route, ops only Sun to Fri - the BGI flights, when they operate, are only on Sat. Get the logic?

I'd check your hearing aid, and specs, if I were you!

Currently, where I live- about 15 miles N of DTW, my particular area gets a very generous flow of arrival traffic (when landing 21/22). I had a pilot tell me approx. alt. is 4,000 flt. plus. Sometimes we have planes almost cross each other's paths. (diff. alts. obviously). The general flow is from the west (fly right over, then in the sight distance, bank right towards DTW), or the best, flow from the south in which a total smooth bank from the south to southeast (think of a half circle). Anyway, you get to observe flying with wheels-down, the NW ARJ's with the rear spoiler open, the Airbuses (B757s & ARJs also) "change" in engine-sound.

I've even seen my home twice flying into DTW. Some think it's impossible, but once you enter the Metro area, use the I-275/I-696/M-5/I-96 mixing bowl (if coming from the west) as a point of reference and you can find anything.

But I'll be moving to about 33 miles from DTW in the Fall.  Sad I'm going to miss the action.

Under flight path of 13R at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). Mainly AA Eagle, AA MD-80's, Delta RJ's, and the occasional 767 or 757 of American or Delta. Very nice to spot!

I'm under the approach for the 24s here at YYZ. The announce they're at NOAH as they approach my house. I'd guess they're about 1500 feet up. I can read registrations with a fast moving pair of binoculars. They also fly overhead when departing the 6s. I'd guess they're between 4 to 7 thousand by the time they get here.
As the computer is located under a window, many times I'll be on A.net and can see what's coming in for 24R. When 24L is in use, however, that approach takes them directly over the house, so, I can't see them from this window.

Until a few months ago, I lived under final for Rwy 8L at AFB (HNL / HIK / PHNL / PHIK), USA - Hawaii">HNL, I would see about a billion JAL 747's every morning and just as many HA 717's in the afternoon. Good times.

Now I live at Davis-Monthan AFB in Az. A-10's and C-130's everywhere... but rare to see much more. Every now and then the rare E4 but not much else.

I live 1,5NM out from Sao Paulo Int´l Outer Marker for runway 09, on the north side of the approach (i.e. left side of landing planes) more or less 500 to 700 meters from localizer track.

Quite nice to make photos I must say...

Yes I live under the crossroads of European traffic going to the US westcoast and Asian traffic gong to the eastern USA + the Canadian traffic.
This is just south of Edmonton.
This is what flies over my house in a day (ACARS equipped aircraft only)
I omitted aircraft types and 150 flights of Air Canada and Westjet to keep it short.

During my 9 month stint in Farmington, New Mexico, I lived right under an airway. So stuff was passing overhead all the time.

I get SFO eastbound departures at about 11000' climbing over the East Bay. They usually transfer contact between NorCal Departure and Oakland Center at this point.

When I'm down in Los Angeles, I see aircraft descending on the Sadde 6 arrival while departing the SMO VOR on a 070 heading and descending through 7000' to 2500'.

At where I live in Mountain View, CA, when Moffett Federal Airfield was Moffett Naval Air Station I would get P-3C Orions flying over my head all the time as part of th circling pattern.

Today, I do get commercial jets flying over me whenever SJC has to fly north to south routings for landings and takeoffs.

I'm not under an airway exactly, but I live very close to both the Laguardia ILS to rwy 4 and the expressway visual rwy 13 approaches. Ususally I only get to see those A/C on the visual approach but there are times when the ILS is in use in good WX so those A/C are also visible.

We live right under the UB4 airway in Nottingham, England. There is an intersection right at Hucknall airfield (about 1nm west of our house) with the airway UP6, heading to the TNT VOR.

Most of the traffic is BA Shuttle 757s, 737s, A320s, with Easyjet 737s, British Charter Airlines, Air France/Lufthansa A320s/CRJs, Aer Lingus A320s.
A lot of transatlantic stuff from LHR/CDG/FRA/ZRH comes over, BA 747s/777s, AF 747s, SR A330s, and the usual UA/DL/AA.

Sometimes (very rarely), we get the inbounds to AMS from across the pond, Northwest/KLM 747s, and some SAS long hauls.

Its always nice to watch a trailing aircraft turn onto the UP6, especially through the old telescope!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Yes, there are loads of overflights over my house, the best ones are the LH long hauls to the USA:

I also get a lot of AMS traffic, STN approach traffic, some low cost flights from BRS and CWL go over me plus MAN-Europe flights. USA to Paris long hauls can often be seen plus loads of MyTravel/Monarch etc flights from the Iberian peninsula to EMA/MAN/BHX.

I can of course see LHR traffic but that's usually at around 500ft when I see it so not really using an airway at that point Smile/happy/getting dizzy

There's quite a few over my house. I live about 5 miles or so north from Liverpool Airport and flights from Belfast, Isle of Man, Dublin and sometimes continental flights fly low over my house.

Occasionally, you can also see westbound MAN flights, such as EI's MAN - DUB service. Maybe sometimes inbound or outbound transatlantic flights.

Jeez Geraldo - that is one hell of a pic!

What kind of altitude was that flying at to get that much detail from airways traffic with a 480mm lens? Did you use a converter?

Even with my 50x scope I still normally only get a very basic view of the airliner (enough to make out type/airline), nowhere near enough to make out the reg!

Good shot!

Although the topic allegedly is about airways traffic, Gerardo didn't say his Singapore 744 was at altitude when he shot it with his 480 mm. The flaps are still out.

I grew up about a mile from PIT, between two approaches on either side. In fact, when Pit expanded, they bought huge swaths of land,only 1/4 mile from my home, and took out hundreds of houses. Then they paid large lumps of cash for air rights to the remaining homeowners nearby, including my parents. Good for them, but probably why PIT is raking USAirways over the coals with fees right now...

I don't know which airway it is (I'm too lazy to go upstairs and get my Jeppesen to look it up), but I'm right under the one that goes between PSM and BDL. Last night, I picked off Speedbird 178 (G-BNLF) on that airway. The bad thing is that most of the traffic is on the one that goes PSM-BOS, but since I'm in Danvers a lot, I can pick off a lot of the traffic there.

Not sure of the "J" number, but at MSY, we're below the high-altitude airway for flights to/from DFW and Florida. Most Florida flights southeast-bound from DFW proceed to the Alexandria VOR (AEX, I believe), then/or direct to the Harvey (HRV) VOR which is 15-odd miles southeast of MSY, from where they begin/end their journey over the Gulf of Mexico.

OK, here it goes (I'll probably forget something).

Transatlantic/Transpacific flights from EWR/JFK at FL 150-200
Transatlantic flights from IAD and points south (such as ATL) at cruising altitude (FL 300-400)
NYC flights (all airports) to Boston at FL 150-200
HPN Arrivals from the East/Northeast at FL 30-90 (not actually sure about these altitudes)
Sikorsky S-76's flying to/from the plant
Inbound Transatlantic flights for points south
A few inbound flights to ISP

My old apartment was under the approach path for 10R/L at PDX. UA A-319 from DEN would wake me up every morning at 10:30. I have since moved across town and have the rolling of jet engine noise all day! *yay* Since the first day I moved here, PDX departure has been taking everyone off from 28R/L and out to the west. Plus, I am within walking distance of VOU-Pearson Airfield.

I live under the airway that goes upto Pole Hill VOR, but I haven't a clue what it's called. It's brilliant!

Noel, widebodies fly at about 1600-2200m altitude over our house, more or less. That's at least, what I have been told....

In the good old days of the SR B743, they were by far the lowest, in my opinion, and the loudest.

I used a 75-300mm lens on a EOS D60. With the multiplier of 1.6 of the D60, this gives a total of 480mm.

At FL270.

Alot of transatlantic traffic comes over my house along with Concorde. I don't know what effects what airway they use but sometimes we have like a heavy every minute and other days there's nothing for hours.

I live to the South of the approaches into PDX, they follow the river in and I live in a van down...I mean the aparmtent is by the river. If it's coming or goin, I usually have a good view from the balcony.

But alas, not for long. Although my new home will be under the routes up from Southern Arizona (relocating to FLG), but it just won't be as spectacular.

regards,
Tom
is that a light at the end of the tunnel or just a train?
