    I’m in London, so take you’re pick of Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton or even London city. Between all of them, you get almost everything you would want to see! Except there’s no blue angels like Cap10CJ! Closest thing to that we’ve got is the F-15’s up at Lakenheath.
    Good idea to get the chat going on here though. Way too quiet!

    Hi. I am in Bogota, Colombia. I used to work at the concessionaire of El Dorado International Airport (BOG / SKBO), my "home" airport, which normally has very interesting material, specially if you love freighters, like: Aerosucre's B727 & B737, LAS (Lineas Aéreas Suramericanas) B727, & Transcarga A300. Moreover, you can see Qatar Cargo B772, Turkish Cargo B772, DHL & Fedex B757 & B763, Cargolux B747-8, KLM Cargo B744, Avianca Cargo A332, Latam B767, and so on. On the other hand, before covid times, on a daily basis there could be seen Aviancas of many kinds: A318, A319, A320, A321, A332 & B787, plus Iberia A346 & now A350, LH A343 & A346, KLM B789, Turkish B789, Latam B788 & B789, AA B737max8, B772, A319, Delta B757 & B767, United B737, Jetblue A320, Spirit A319 & A320, Copa B738, etc., etc., etc., which now are less seen. However, happilly the traffic has been increasing last weeks. Greetings from the northernmost point of South America!

    PHX - Phoenix Sky Harbor. I'm just a 10 minute drive from the terminal (but not in rush hour!). Flight path is just south and north of my home. I am also just 10 minutes from where Airliners International will hold their annual event in Tempe in July.

    PWM - Portland, Maine. As a kid I would go to the airport and watch Northeast DC-3's, DC-6's, Vicounts, and later (in yellowbird colors) FH-227's, DC-9's and B-727's. After graduation from college (The very next day!) I started with Northeast Airlines as a Ramp Agent. That same year Northeast Airlines was merged into Delta Air Lines. One year later, I became one of the first Delta Stewards... There was no such non-gender word as "Flight Attendant" then. (That came 3 or 4 years later) I flew for 35 years until I retired. I still go to PWM occasionally, during a lunch break, and sit in my car in the observation area on the South Portland side of the runway... just like when I was a kid!

    Well, it doesn't get much more boring than Cork! Especially right now in these Covid times. Only a couple of movements a day.
    In better times probably a couple of dozen primarily Aer Lingus A320s and ATR72s as well as Ryanair B738s. Air France, KLM, Swiss and Iberia came in several times a week, though not daily, with the smaller types in their fleets.
    Currently the most exciting thing is a weekdays-only day-stopper from/to Leipzig, a Condor B763 operating a freighter flight for DHL. Boy, does that look big!
    Hopefully the missing flights will be reinstated if and when all this Covid business is past us.

    Now that's what I call a commute!

    Indianapolis, IN (KIND). I've lived within an hour of the airport my entire life...(within 2 miles of it now). Worked on the ramp at IND when I was in my early 20's, including at FedEx starting in 1979 when there was only ONE daily inbound flight (there are over 150 now).

    started a topic What is your home airport?

    What is your home airport?

    Folks, I feel this forum is too quiet. Creepy, crickets chirping, crows cawing, zombies in the shadows quiet...

    I am hoping to get a little more action around here, so please bear with me.

    Let's start with an easy one, What airport do you call home? Whether you work, travel or just planespot, what is your field of choice?

    I work at Pensacola International (KPNS) in sunny (most of the time....) Pensacola Florida. Everyday, I get to enjoy watching United, American, Delta, Frontier, Silver, Boutique, UPS, GA and loads of military every day along with some of the most spectacular sunsets money can buy. We are also the home of the Blue Angels, so we get to see them practice in the distance on a daily basis.
