At BOS, we get 747s from BA, KE, and LH, and occasionally NW. We have a large selection in BOS though...everything from the Cessna 402 to 747 for commercial services.
At MHT, the largest planes are FedEx A310s and UPS 767-300Fs. The largest passenger plane is UAs 757, 727s, and COs MD-80s. On the other end of the spectrum is the Saab 340.

At CLE (Cleveland Hopkins International Airport)

Fed Ex A-300

Continental, United 757s

We used to get a DC-10 in every evening and I have an unconfirmed (by my own eyes) report that the DC-10 has been moved to United's morning run CLE-ORD.

Sometimes American Trans Air brings in an L-1011.
Up, up and away!

Actually, it's no longer the Polar 741/742, but Atlas Air 747-400F that's the largest in EFHK. Atlas flies on behalf of BA Cargo to Japan.

A slight difference, granted, but still...

At YWG the Largest plane to land and depart here is AN-124. with the German Airforce. They do lots of trainning up here in YWG... I can say that Canada 3000 doers fly A330's during a seasonal basis. They do a YYZ-YWG-HNL route. Royal flys in 310's and Air Transat now flies in 757 on 2 days during the week. Also Air Canada and Canadian fly in 320's on a daily bases.. The odd time AC will fly a 767-200 on the YWG-YYZ route. AC flys in CRJ's and BAE-146 to the USA and Northwest flys in DC-9's from MSP, Soon to be 6 flights daily. Also westjet uses 737-200's into YWG on a daily bases. Right now Westjet is the major airline that has alot of Growth in YWG.. I can predict Westjet may develop a minihub through Winnipeg International Airport. I am guessing in about 5 years time.. In Augest Canjet will fly 737-200's and in November Roots Air(a partner of Skyservice ) will fly in A320's, and A330's. In clusion Lots of planes to see in YWG.
