Mysterious Star Alliance visitor to the Jeddah tarmac, in early July 2017. Wonder if it was transporting Palestinians from El Arish.

The latest Iberia Airbus A300 B4-120 scrapped

The latest Iberia Airbus A300B4-120 are being scrapped, here are the latest images of these aircraft.

Unfortunately the company that is carrying out the scrapping of the A300 has requested the non-publication of the video, so it is not available. Sorry for the inconveniences.

Hey Guys,
was wondering if anyone can give me advice if the following is possible. I´m arriving at PUJ on Jan 2nd at 3:26pm on AA2468 from MIA and have to wait for my Mom to arrive from LGW at 7:55pm. Is it possible(and allowed) for me to wait at the balcony in the departure area of Terminal B and use the time to do some spotting? What is with the luggage? Can I pick it up and proceed back into the departure area? Or is it generally not possible to go from the arrival into the departure area?

Thanks for any advice.

Saw this plane at SLC back in July:

And coincidentally saw it again at BNA on the way back from the eclipse last month:

I wish AA still kept the metal unpainted on all their planes but I imagine it's a huge hassle to maintain.

A nice surprise to see the Rolling Stones depart Zurich. This same bird used to be in the service of 'Guns-N-Roses' as well......hundreds of more shots that need to be sorted through but it'll have to wait until after the JNB/Safari Trip.

It's always cool to see the band livery on their charters that harken back to the iconic image of Led Zeppelin in front of their plane.

Anyone here going to the Salinas Airshow? No good photo/video but the F22 taking off and banking out of MRY is awesome.

Plenty of layover time (6-8 hours in each direction) in ZRH during flights to and from JNB .....

I kinda do too. I have a ton of miles on those birds. 9C was my spot. That flight use to take me over a Hr to get to SFO, now with The 175, we are there in 24 min....so I guess I ready don't miss her.

Delta 737-800 operating a charter flight into CSG (Columbus, GA). Outside of the occasional weather diversion for Atlanta bound flights and random charter service for ICE, the only regularly scheduled service is CR2 to Atlanta so it's always fun to see a slightly bigger bird at our small local airport.
