Atlanta=Delta/Air Tran=Very Boring Pictures

Mon Oct 20, 2003 1:08 am

As a resident of Atlanta, Georgia, and an avid photographer, I have to say that regardless of Hartsfield being the largest airport in the world in terms of volume, it's go to be one of the most boring in terms of aircraft. And now that Delta has phased out their MD-11's, Hartsfield is being turned into an MD-80, 737, 717, 757, and 767 Super Hub. We get 747's in here everyday, sure...but at crazy times, like 6am, or 12midnight. Fed-Ex flies DC-10's and MD-11's everyday, but again, at crazy times. I wish I lived in NYC. I would go to JFK everyday!

Anyone now of some interesting aircraft traveling to ATL...with flight times included?

Well, If you lived in GPT, you would LOVE ATL. GPT Gets the same aircraft everyday. The largest aircraft we get here is a 717-200. The rest are CRJs and ERJs. and we get one 737-500, but that may not last very long.

BR715:

I also from GPT, I think you're going a little overboard on the 737 statment, that flight always goes out full and makes good money for the airline, I'd look for more/larger 737 in the future for GPT.

However we do need more seats and larger equipment by our current carriers and need more regionals, at least, to land here.

Hey Jmets18!

I live in ATL too, and yep, you're right! Yawwwwn! LOL. My roommie is a manager for DL, and there ARE some really cool aircraft that fly in to Hartsfield and usually stay overnight. The last one was an Antonov, believe it or not. He always calls me the moment he finds out one's coming in...I could email you if I hear of any cool A/C showing up.  Smile

Check us out in YVR sometimes. We might not be the biggest or best, but we have a great variety of Asian, European, Latin American and North American airlines serving the city with lots of variety in aircraft types. We are also fortunate that most of this activity occurs between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., and with amazing areas for plane spotting you couldn't ask for more!

If you think ATL is boring, you should try MEM

Red Tails all day

Purple Tails all night

I swear I think MEM could claim the title of either DC-9 or B-727 capital of the world!

All hubs are considerably "boring"....MIA: AA 738/752/300, COex Beech1900D city. You can always count on seeing one of those at least every 30 minutes (seriously at the least!). However we do get interesting traffic and so in between the "boring stuff" its worth it!

FLL has a very good balance and, in my opinion, from the terminal roadway is very spoter friendly. You really can get an up close view of the planes at gate and sometimes landing by T1 and T2. T3 I'm not sure about, nor am I about T4.

Not all of the cargo birds come in at night to ATL. A number of them come in between 7am and Noon. Airlines that usually come in during that time frame are China Airlines Cargo, Lufthansa Cargo, Korean Air Cargo, Polar Air, Atlas Air, Martinair Cargo, and Kitty Hawk. And on late Saturday morning, FedEx sends a MD-10 up to MEM.
Just check on http://www.flytecomm.com/cgi-bin/trackflight and that will give you a lot of info on the arrivals into a particular airport.

MIA is served by 99 airlines (including this winter's additions, Finnair, Aviacsa, and Atlasjet; number 100, myTravel, starts this summer). Only Frankfurt has a wider variety.

All I'm saying is that ATL would be much nicer with some mainline 747's coming through. Like Air France, British Airway's, Lufthansa, etc.. That would add to the dull exitement of spotting in ATL.

If the demand was there, you would be seeing it. Air France, if I am not mistaken, sometimes sends a 744 to Atlanta during certain seasons, although they won't this winter.

There is virtually no way Lufthansa could fill a 747-400 from Atlanta. They have commonly used A340-200s and 767s on this route.

British Airways will not be flying 747-400s to Atlanta any time soon, even if there was/is demand. All the 747-400s are based in London Heathrow, and Atlanta service is from London Gatwick.

Any rumors out there of the new international terminal bringing in new international carriers. Or some of the same carriers flying some 747's. Will the new terminal support the A380?

I am in no way saying MIA is really boring, hence the quotes. I am just stating that there are periods of time while spotting when all you get are tons of 738s and 752s and it isn't really that interesting. But if you take the average early morning or mid/late afternoon, then the interesting traffic picks up and it gets exciting again.

At least with Delta in ATL, you still see three different liveries! Although only a few Delta planes still bear the old, old widget livery.

At least you have the opportunity for lots of photographs. At BDL, all you see is AA MD-80s, US A320s, WN 737s, and a few others here and there. We will never see a BA 744 or LH A340. And we don't get that many flights in any event.

Even MCI was better with the daily AC CRJ flights... And when NJ was around, you had a variety of colors and schemes on just 8 gates...

Well, we'll have the SAA 747-400 until the first of the year, when it switches to a A346. Korean Air switches between the 747-400 and the 777 it seems like every few months.

I guess for me the pictures become more interesting when I photograph aircraft that are something of an engineering marvel. For me, it's the tri-jet's and double deckers. I don't really care for anything else unless it has a cool livery or something.

I guess it doesn't matter what I photograph though, because this friggin website won't upload any.

Korean Air passenger ops with the B747-400 during the summer and the B777-200 in the winter. Also, Korean Air Cargo arrives at 12:20AM Monday through Saturday. Sunday the flight arrives at 7:40AM until the time change when all flights are due to arrive at 11:20PM.

Jmets18

If you are bored, you may want to take up night photography, some of the cargo birds come out at night. For example, Korean Air B747-400F, 200F, and occasionally the 300SF, JAL B747-200F, EVA MD-11F of B747-400F. Sometimes you can see all three airlines on the ground at the same time.

During daylight hours you can see Polar Air Cargo, China Airlines, and Martinair. Along with some other carriers on the South Cargo Ramp.

If you have not guessed by now, I work cargo!

Air France tommorrow at 13.40
China Airlines tommorrow at 9.25 747-400
British Airways tommorrow at 16.10 777
Eva Air today 16.10 md-11
Lufthansa tommorrow at 14.00
Omni Air tommorrow at 7.00
South African tommorrow at 8.42 747400

that's about it. I also found ATL boring but not for lack of traffic. its the available shooting angles. Really there is only 1 time to shoot and one angle you can get - from the parking garage.

N757KW,

Thanks for the advice. Hey, where can I snap some good pics? I favor daylight photography because the south parking garage offers the best spotting location...to my knowledge anyway. I've got a pretty decent camera (canon powershot g2), but I have yet to purchase a zoom lens for it. I need to get as close as possible.

Thanks...

Hey did you guys in Atlanta lose any airline service as a result of 9/11? I'm sure it's pretty boring there as far as exotic aircraft but atleast you guys didn't lose airlines like DFW did...we lost the Air France A343 and a JAL MD-11 and then Sabena went under, too. I loved that bright white A333 that came here for a short while. I'd love to see that SAA 744 if I'm ever in ATL. Similar airports we have - large, busy, but dominated by one or two carriers and not many cool European/Asian/Latin American carriers. Oh well, I guess it's better to see an occasional LH or BA big bird rather than living in a smaller city and only getting RJs.

I am not the worlds greatest picture taker, so I am not out taking pictures. But, you can get landing shots on Loop Road at Clark Howell Highway, when planes are landing on 27L. I have seen people there before.

DFW has to be the most boring major (hub) airport for watchers unless your a MD80 lover and its a few of them out their. Most of the few 767's and 777's arrive and depart at the same time other than that I would say that 60-65% of all large jet movements their are MD80's. If you get lucky you will catch some of the exotic heavies or UPS heavies and Fed EX heavies. I sure do miss when I was based at LAX I loved the variety of aircraft types! I must say that ATL's mix is better than DFW's!

DTW is boring for most of the day except between 1pm and about 4pm when the international flights arrive with the NW 744s from Asia, the NW DC-10s and A330s from Europe and the BA 763 and LH A343 from Europe.

Otherwise DTW is all red tail DC-9, A319/320, 757 and CRJ, ARJ, Saab 340 all day.


Down here in MCO, I am getting tired of all the A320s, 737s, 757s and ERJs, we don't get much else otherwise except for the almost hourly DL 763/764 from ATL, and a few international arrivals in the afternoon.

On days like today, where the aircraft are departing, it is very boring.

The European flights all make a quick right turn on departure from Runway 35 and they don't even fly over my apartment and they usually are heard behind the trees on take off, so all we have otherwise is the constant take off of DL Express ERJs, the various 757s, A320s and 737s

Technically, SFO could have been very boring with all the UA, AA and AS planes flying in and out of the airport, but at least we get all that international traffic on Concourse A and also the fact SFO gets a lot of traffic from CO, DL, NW, TZ and US.  Smile

Try GFK, we get Saab340s all day (only 4 or 5 really). And we get a couple RJ85s-which it sounds like might not be around much longer, and 1 or 2 DC9s- all NW or XJ. But only saabs during the middle of the day (usually). FedEx comes here with a couple B727s, but at 10 at night and 6 in the morning. It gets real boring, especially because we never really get more than one aircraft at a time. Be happy you have ATL!

If you live nearby ATL then of course it’s boring after some time. I am sick and tired of UAL 767/777s at IAD. Everywhere you look its UAL 767/777 or ACA CRJ. It’s boring but because of this situation I started collecting fleets.
When I visited ATL earlier this year, I took 12 rolls of pictures from 11am till 4pm. I was very happy with the variety of aircrafts. Beside all regular Delta stuff I've got Aeromexico 757, Korean Air 777, SAA 747, Sky King 732 (Atlanta Hawks), Wings of Justice 732 and some other unexpected stuff.
Start appreciating what you have, because tomorrow might be too late.
I started shooting US Airways/Delta Shuttle 727s when they informed public that they would switch to A320/B738. I always thought that I can always catch them at DCA so why waste the film, but the doom day came and they switched equipment. What about UAL DC-10s at BWI? I was waiting for the perfect weather. I didn't bother to shoot them in overcast sky. I lost my opportunity to do so.

Learn to appreciate ATL.

The corner of Loop Road and Clark Howell is a pretty good spot. I saw some guys Saturday taking approach photos on Loop Road right by the Ford Plant. I've see folks on the dirt embankment across from Mercury Air Center as well. One of these days I'm going to take my camera with me to work so I can get some pics (working @ ATL does have it's advantages) of a/c on several of the concourses and @ South Cargo.

I don't think that we lost any airlines here in ATL as a result of 9/11, but before that, there were many that eventually left. Some of those are Sabena, Swissair, KLM, Austrian, and JAL.

I can understand ATL getting boring to someone who has to do the bulk of his or her spotting there. As for me, I would kill to have a Saturday or Sunday afternoon with the weather like it was here today in Atlanta spotting and taking pictures. My love affair with aviation began with trips driving through Atlanta right by the airport, and falling in love with the L1011s parked there. They will always have a special place in my heart.

But I am with a lot of the people on here who live closer to non hub airports. At CAE, we get all CRJs, except for maybe one or two DL 737s a day, and maybe an MD80, I haven't checked in a while. However, I was very lucky when I got home from my vacation. I landed here in Columbia, got out, and there was a DL 777 sitting two hundred yards away. Apparently it was a weather diversion from ATL that day. Sometimes we get Air Force one if the prez is in town, and we get C-17s doing touch and goes. Other than that, it is quite dull around here.

I hope you do get some more interesting traffic in Atlanta, but I must admit I am quite envious.  Smile

>Will the new terminal support the A380?

The existing concourse E can handle at least a dozen jumbo jets at the same time. The gate areas are pretty large also. I think it's safe to say that E can already handle the A380. The only thing they should to do at the 3 or 4 gates with the largest areas is replace the jetways with dual jetways for faster loading/unloading of the passengers.

Going with what Lindy mentioned earlier, I decided to take a ton of photos this weekend. The weather was great at STL and we had a special guest, the Embraer 170.

Any other time it works like this at Lambert, Silver MD80(repeat 5 times), Silver 757, brown 737(repeat 3 times),red DC-9, dark blue 737, Silver 757(repeat 3 times), silver MD80(repeat 6 times) throw in an RJ replacing the red or dark blue planes once in a while and a bunch of 145s and J-41 for fun and you get STL. The night time when the cargo carriers fly is the only time we have a little variety around here.

After the 11/1 AA cutbacks here this will just be a boring ghost town.

I can't believe nobody had mentioned IAH (unless I missed it). CO Boeings, which at a few thousand feet all look pretty much the same; ERJ; and DC9/MD80/90. KLM used to have one daily 747 (not sure if that is still going on - haven't seen it in a while).

I'm not sure when all those widebody cargos are arriving/departing....  Confused, unless it's the ones that are going over from 4-6AM  Sleepy

It seems to me that people are complaining about the airports that they live by, which seem boring to each of you since you see the same operations day in and day out. I agree with Caetravlr, I'd love to be able to camp out at ATL and take some pictures. I'm originally from OMA, and while there are no scheduled wide-bodies there anymore (used to get UA DC10s back in the day), it still offered a variety of planes and schemes. OMA also had quite a bit of charter traffic, like Casino, Sky Trek, Sun Country, ect. Now and then NWA would bring in DC10s for training or divert a B747. The Air Force would fly the E-4B in now and then too, as well as some of the RC-135s. But for this variety of mainliners, charters, and regionals, a lot of people there complain about it being boring.

When I got to MCO this year, I loved seeing the other planes and airlines I don't see everyday. The same is when I get to other cities I fly into. From my experience it seems that some of the out stations might offer a bigger variety of liveries since all the hub airlines are competing in those markets. Of course hubs have their specialty too. To say an airport is boring is merely in the eye of the beholder.

take care all

It's like getting married. In the beginning you love seeing it EVERY DAY, but after a while it becomes the S.O.S. so you just take a trip to another airport and check out the equipment
Airline photography. Whether they're fully clothed, butt naked, having issues or confused I'm taking pictures!!
