Thanks for the clarification, I'm still relatively new at trying to pick out plane types and just used what United typically flies from MUC to IAD. Probably an equipment swap.

I stared long and hard at your photo before convincing myself.

It's a beauty by the way.

Unless the shot was taken on March 9th of this year, that is a B777. March 9th was the only date this year that UA903 was not operated by a 772. On that day it was a 763.

I'm not saying that I was there and everyone is wrong......I'm just going where the data point me to.

N644AS...also known as the Wi-Fi plane. Was heading to PHX from PDX today.



The plane for the Houston Rockets. I think. It's my best guess...it's unable to be tracked at FlightAware...and the Rockets played the Blazers today.



N952UA...not sure where it was coming from, though.

Nice shots! Did you get your laptop out and see if you could catch the signal?

I didn't have my laptop with me. LOL

In all honesty though, I didn't realize it was 644 until I got home and was looking at my pictures.

Some highlights from the "Imperial Hill" on the southside of LAX yesterday. Canon 40D, 70-200/4L IS, some with Kenko 1.4x extender. Some pics are slightly cropped.

BA282 744 G-BNLM just off the ground to LHR (ISO100, 1/160, f8):


LX41 343 HB-JMH to ZRH. The 343 uses the most runway of all planes to take off (ISO800, 1/80, f4):


Las Vegas Sands' 747SP VQ-BMS taking off. It uses the least runway of all jets (ISO800, 1/50, f4):


AS 734 N705AS "Spirit of Alaska Statehood" that was just painted earlier this month (ISO200, 1/640, f5.6):

Would you know why?

Very nice photos.
