March of Metal – Takeoffs & Landings A340 A300 747 777 787 Chicago O’Hare International AirportThis wasn’t filmed in March nor is every airplane you see here composed entirely of metal! *GASP* Relax, it’s just a title folks. With this video we usher in July and say farewell to June until next year. Happy to have another chance at Saudia doing a repatriation/cargo flight as well as add the Turkish Boeing 787-9 to the list of “spotted at ORD”. There is a bonus walk-around clip of the American Airlines Astrojet at the end of this video. Another first for me was the Polish Independence livery Boeing 787-9… I just wish it had been in better light. A number of clips in this video are also from a new spotting location that is north of the arrivals for 28C, 28R. Not sure how much I’ll use it in future since it is a little distant.
A word about Flight Information in videos…
Due to time being short for me to work on this video I have included a abbreviated version detailing the aircraft and airlines you see included even though I generally try to add a full list of all arrivals and departures. If you need to know a certain flight you can punch in the registration to FlightAware.com or Flightradar24.com.
Stay calm and watch airplanes.
