Don't really see many of them around here. It was a interesting start to the morning.
I am jealous.
I was extatic myself dude. It was cool.

But where I'm located we're surrounded by mountains that peak around 1500 ft, there is a large hospital 2miles north of here, through the summer, and winter, f-16c's and F-22's use the hospital as a steerpoint and if you time it right you can hang out and watch them turn around overhead around 1000ft, also sonic booms are a daily thing here, many houses in the community have cracked and settleing foundations because of this.

My mom used to work at BAD (Barksdale Airforce Base). Yesterday we heard an aircraft fly over that sounded just like a BUFF according to her. She said she knows nothing else that sounds like it. The cloud cover hid the actual aircraft though. I believe my house or the field behind it is a Steer point for a local airfield so I end up with numerous GA (owned by AA and DA) sighting everyday. I can hear a helicopter as I type actually. Its about to fly over...Ahh couldn't see it. I was too late (stupid trees). But that's pretty much what I get everyday. Now you know! :D

I used to see like 50 airliners everyday coming over my house at around 3,000 feet(Close to the airport still climbing)but now ever since PIA has gone downhill rarely 1 every week and that to a small ATR-72 not a PIA 747 or 777.

Wow, you guys are so lucky to see so much military and russian aircraft. I've barely seen a military jet, only things I saw were 5 PLA trucks, 1 PLAAF heli (today, I think it looked like one...but could've been just a firefighting heli.) That's all I spotted today, 1 helicopter. :cry: sad I can't go to the airport more often.
Anyways, about a month ago in a Taiwanese airport, I saw a China Airlines (from Taiwan) 747-400 landing with the original boeing livery on the body, but the China airlines flag on the tail.

I spotted several A-320s, a A-300-600 (china airways), several 3/2 engined private jets, some 737s, from 737-800s to ones without winglets (probably 737-700 or 737-300?), from airlines ranging from china airways, shenzhen airlines, china southern, Sichuan airlines (I think?), china eastern...at Shenzhen Bao'an international airport and Guiyang Longdongbao Airport. Over the course of 5 days.

Double posting due to different days of spotting.

PAL A340

PAL 777-300ER (PR 300, my flight back to Hong Kong)

Several Cebu Pacific A320's

Several ATR 72s.

One 747-400, Continental (i think)

One A330, Dragonair (i think)

That's all.
