As you may have noticed, I post a lot of photos of airplanes and airports. It’s easy to explain — I like airplanes and airports (except JFK - that one is pretty shit). Every time I have to fly, I sit on an airline website 24 hours before departure refreshing the page to get a window seat while checking in. I love window seats, mainly so I can sleep and not be bothered by people walking back and worth, but also so I could take photos. I get disappointed if I get a window seat in the middle of the plane, that mean I won’t be able to see much because of the wings.
Especially I like when you board the plane not through the gate, but outside, when you have to take a little bus tour through the airport, ride it under the massive wings of the planes and enjoy the rare views you don’t have access too. Also there’s something special boarding the plane outside through the stairs.
Every folder with travel photos in my Lightroom starts and ends with photos form the airports. For a while on Flickr, I had a separate folder where I would put all images form the planes, to separate them from the rest of photography. Here I wanted to share a selection of photos with aircrafts I took while traveling around the world.
By the way, if you see any wrong airplane naming, let me know here in the comments or by e-mail.
