    I check on it from time to time.  I like to hear a jet go over, and try to guess where it's going.

  • When the wind is right, them big boys fly right over my house and I can read what airline they are. I can spot 'em just fine. My favorites are vintage military aircraft.

    I'm in the flight path for Camp David so I get to see Marine One(or the decoys) from time to time. Lots of military stuff, in fact, I saw the V-22 osprey the other day. I am also in the approach path to Trooper 3, one of the Maryland State Police Medevacs.

    I live on the flight path near Pearson International right about where eastbound and westbound split. Cool to see those big birds make that turn west. That airspace also serves as a rallying point for jets turning around for another flyby over Lake Ontario during the air show at the CNE. I work downtown in clear view of Billy Bishop Airport and watch them landing and leaving by the minute. Amazing amount of traffic up there at any given moment.

    Don't see many planes from my backyard, but do see the traffic copters circling around during rush hour especially when there is a wreck nearby.

  • The wife (yes, the wife who....) grew up in Dorset, England and lived beneath one of the routes used by Concorde during development and testing.  Cool.

    yes, everyday. but then again I have a job that gives me permission to get on an A/C when ever I feel like it. If anyone is ever in ATL and wants a tour of the jet base just let me know.

    every year during the Winnipesaukee ice fishing derby in february theres a bush pilot that flies around ossipee lake, when he tips his wing he drops vintage porn, the race is on, wheelers sleds pickups across the lake for the prize
    :D if you know the difference between a 70's penthouse and a 2013 penthouse you'll understand why he is called the bush pilot.

  • Honestly, being in planes nearly every week, the last thing I would want to do is follow them online. I am so tired of airports and airplanes it isn't funny. But the good news is that every time I am flying home, I love planning my next cook on the Egg.
