We are getting to that point in South Florida where storms and rain blow up pretty quickly and can put (excuse the pun) a damper on some spotting - particularly if spotting time is limited like a lunch hour. So, to get a few good spots in the little time is great - even between the weather.
This G-II59A I've seen around a few times. Her home base is Boca Raton (KBCT). A bit of a smoky departure into the lunchtime sky - still a majestic lady though.
This Learjet is based out of Indiana. She's a relatively new aircraft built in 2008, and still looks pretty new.
This Dash8-Q400 has been on my wish list for quite a while. This is my first Q400 - and I can well believe the Q stands for Quiet! She really is a very quiet aircraft. Registered to the US Dept of Justice, a lovely color scheme and also a fairly young aircraft, having been manufactured in 2009.
And finally, I managed to get another off the wish list - the last of the special schemes for jetBlue - the New York Jets logo jet! I've seen her a lot of times in bad light, night light, when I haven't had my camera, but, finally, all the starts aligned and I finally caught her in good light. Now there are only two special schemes that I don't have - the airTran Orlando Magic B717 and the Delta domestic SkyTeam B757 - but - I'll be on the watch for them.
Some good light thank goodness, but who knows over the next few weeks....rain is welcome in the drought of South Florida, but - can it just stay away at lunchtime!
In the meantime, some more time spent behind the camera lens....
