7 Boeing 747-400's
1 Airbus 380 (Rarely Seen)
2 Boeing 777
7 UH-1 "Huey" for Aerial Patrols
15 Airbus 330 (I saw all of them for 10 Hours Lol All Around)
B1900d (Most Rare Plane To See)

Theres more planes but i didn't bother to look at it.
Lol reason why i spotted them because my City is near to the Busy International Airport Ninoy Aquino International Airport/Manila International Airport (Old Name) (NAIA/MIA) and the ICAO is RPLL

Today I was dragged to the zoo to accompany my cousins.
The zoo is rather close to Sembawang Air Base, so I managed to spot a few helos.

2x CH-47

I've never seen any of the aircraft I've painted. Then again, most aircraft fly over my house well above FL300. :(

From five miles away, all jets look alike.

I was sitting in the living room with my parents complaining "kids these days" when the whole house started to rumble. We looked outside and saw four Apache helicopters escorting a Chinook. Very low and very slow.

I was reading my Facebook news feed and suddenly there is a roaring afterburner sound, I ran outside and I saw 2x Sukhoi Su-30MKK and 1x Sukhoi SU-27 flying above my house. Anyone know what is happening right now in Yogyakarta, Indonesia?

I forgot to post yesterday. I didn't see them, but those helicopters that went over the house on the 26th came back over the house at 1:30 AM, waking everyone up. I think my mother wants them to all get dishonorable discharges.

x6 F-16C Thunderbirds
x4 57th F-16Cs
x2 A-10C Warthogs
X1 WA F-15C Eagle (Taxiing back)

Watching the approaches for landing were awesome, considering the fact that we have overcast and the planes looked dark grey and epic.

Actually saw a Shenyang J-8 today. Guessing Air Force.

A welcome variation after the usual PLANAF JH-7's.

Spotted one of our Royal Malaysian Air Force's quite brand new EC725 Super Puma flying over the suburban areas of the Tampin district. Skies were clear and the even though it was quite a distance away, I could easily see the grey body and green windows of the huge heli.

Oh, and the sound was quite loud too.
