A few little 737's but mostly FX MD-10's/11's out of OAK. Though we are on the other side of the hill they still pass by and when it's $hit weather like now they fly extra low allowing me to catch a glimpse of weather its a 10 or 11 but clearly FX. Many GA a/c and lots of police/medical helicopters. A few military choppers here and there.

Thanks again! Cool topic!

I live in Castle Donington which is less than a mile from East Mids. As the village sits parallel to the runway there isn't any overflying, although on occasion there is the usual overfly, such as the SAA B747-400 which flew very low in June as part of the circuit for the Rolls Royce centenary.

There is a vast amount of mid-to-high altitude traffic however; on clear days like today, you can often see aircraft on the descent heading north-west to Manchester.

At mid-altitude the traffic is usually heading south-east to north-west en-route to Manchester, usually coming from European destinations or the shuttle following the M1 route and turning over Derby. (On occasion, I have seen PIA aircraft on this route).

High altitude traffic (contrails) is usually US/Canada-bound flights from LHR/Europe heading (slightly) south-east/north-west for an oceanic routing over Scotland. Others seem to be domestic/European traffic heading for GLA or EDI.

Occasionally, there is west/east mid-altitude traffic that is probably heading for the air-bases of eastern England.

Plus also, I used to live some 15 miles to the northeast in Nottingham and you often used to see the early morning (5-7am) vapour trails travelling almost west-east, coming from the transatlantic crossings heading for continental Europe. This was usually only on sunny, clear summer's mornings.

I live within 20-30 mins of both Manchester and Liverpool airports, but geographically closer to Liverpool. This means we get lots of easyJet traffic flying over the house, and any other traffic in and out of Liverpool. The traffic in and out of Manchester is too high by the time it reaches me, but you can identify them if you look through binoculars. I also get the A300-600ST 'Belugas' flying low over here on their way in and out of Hawarden Airport where the Airbus wing manufacturing plant is located.

Anything from CRJs, ERJs, Dash 8s and ATRs, practically every Airbus except for the A340-500 and A318, just about every modern Boeing except for the B717, a few Russian planes and some C17s - high enough to barely be heard but low enough so that I can enjoy the sight.

Depending on the winds, I get to see the planes coming in from the northwest or northeast, and I get quite a few departures towards the north around here.

That's the nice thing about living on the other side of town from Frankfurt's Rhein/Main airport... Big grin

I get every single arrival into EMT flying in at 200 feet or less over my home when runway 19 is in use for landings and all the runway 01 departures as well. It's mainly general aviation traffic, but oftentimes we'll get the visiting Connie, Tri-Motor, Bi-Planes, LearJet or Gulfstreams, and even a blimp every now and again.

Intermediate altitude climb-out departures from LAX that circle around Pacific Palisades and climb out just east of Los Angeles to Europe and cities such as DEN, ORD, IAD, JFK, etc also tend to fly overhead as well as they cross above the San Gabriel mountain range. I'm not sure what this track is called, but if anyone knows I'd love to find out.

It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

Flights descending into ONT as well as flights beginning their descent into LAX. Its nice to see the European flights (LH, AF, BA, VS, KL) beginning their descent right over my house.

Luckily, not any more.

My previous house was directly under the landing path for SJC. The planes were still quite high about the time when the landing gears were extended. Well, that worried me. If anything fell of the wheels, it would probably hit my house.

One time, I was looking out the window (as the plane turned toward decent to the airport), I could see my house, the driveway, the light out front and the light through the back windows. It was interesting but also scary.

Hiya!
Living in Neath in South Wales, I see what I imagine to be high altitude traffic destined for Heathrow, probably from the US and Canada. Also, up until about a month ago I could hear Air Wales's ATR-42s turning onto finals over Swansea Bay, but not any more!!  Sad However, recently I've seen some rather large grey 4 -engined planes (reminiscent of a B-52 or Hercules) flying rather low in the direction of Swansea, although it seems rather odd to me, considering Swansea's runway is so miniscule (unless these aircraft aren't carrying a lot of weight I suppose), and it's a civilian airport. Does anyone in the area know anything about these planes - what they are, where they're going, and why?! Just curious!

Hwyl!

I live in the Janesville approach path to ORD, but unfortunately far enough out that it's usually tough to distinguish (aside from recognizing the blue UA belly) planes without help from binnoculars, etc.

I live just about next to the outer marker for SNA so everything that goes in there when ops are normal (landing to the south on 19). The largest are the 757's mixed with a whole bunch of 737's and MD 80's. Ton's of GA and bizjets and the occasional military chopper shooting the approach for practice. To be quite honest (and probably sacrilegious here on airnet) treetop (AKA Alaska) is sometimes way low and can be annoying when on the visual. Then of course there is SW who seem to take it as a personal challenge to get lower then treetop and drag it in. When they spool up the power to hang on you just know they are getting behind the power curve and have underestimated. Very, very loud! Still a great sight though!!

I live in the flight path of Newark International, and there's a constant stream of Continentals flying over my house. I also get a mixture of US Airways, American, Delta, Northwest, and the international airlines in the early afternoon, and then the FedEx heavies fly in late at night.
We also get the occasional low flying biz jet flying into Morristown (MMU).

P.S. In the time I have been writing this, about 5 flights have gone by, all Continental.

Where I live permanently, near SLC I see a lot of DL and OO birds, more OO than anything actually CRJs and EM2s. Occasionally I notice a CO. Bizarre that I don't notice the WN flights because there are quite a few at SLC. Other airlines at SLC: AA, B6, F9, HP (uch!) plus Aeromexico, Comair and soon ASA (as DL), Mesa (as HP), and Salmon Air, with common TMA charters. Now I live north of SEA a little bit of everything, a lot of AS and QX. I seem to see the NW / UA flights a lot.

The only thing that flies over my house at a low altitude is a Northwest Airlink Saab 340.

However, I see tons of aircraft flying over at cruise altitude, most of them going from ORD to Europe. At around 7 o'clock during the summer, I can sometimes see around eight 4-engined planes in an hour, including LH A340s and 747s, BA 747s, AF A340s, and the odd CX 747, among others.
You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.

When RWY 25 is in use in Frankfurt I get all the inbound stuff into Frankfurt. This is mainly Reaches(c17,md11,dc10), freighters and the post service during night. In the mornig (around 04:30 lcl) it starts with a bunch of B744,A340,B777 and other heavy equipment from far away. The rest of the day is mixed inbounds from ATR42 up to the B744 and sometimes C5 for the mil-ramp...

Not much really....pigeons, seagulls, i think you get the picture! Depending on what runway is in use at YGK i'll get the occasional Jazz Dash8 with a few biz jets thrown in for good measure, not to mention the numerous cessna's buzzing around. On some occasions there'll be a CF-18 doing circuits or a
C-130 arriving/departing from/to CFB Trenton. Up high there's nothing really, i've seen a few Westjets, USairs, Jetsgo and Air Canada but i don't bother looking up anymore. When i lived in the UK i'd see everything taking off/landing at MAN, plus i'd get tons of stuff overhead arriving from the states, aircraft heading out to the states from europe etc. I passed many a day getting the reg's of those off of ACARS, but alas no more. Best day i ever had was new years day 2003.......a 'convoy' of widebodies from europe went over in the space of an hour and i needed most of them!!!
