This Boeing 737-800 N8315C was delivered new to Southwest Airlines back in July 25 of 2012. I missed posting this on the plane’s delivery date anniversary by a couple of days. When I took the shot, I thought that it was a -700 series so when I looked up the rego, I was surprised to […]
I’ve been busy these past few weeks shooting softball games among other things. It’s good when the photography business gets busy because that means that my bills get paid on time, which is always a good thing. Anyway, I was in San Antonio Texas a couple of days ago, at the St Mary’s University campus […]
I was out at Circuit of the Americas, aka COTA, for the MotoGP race a couple of weeks back. The circuit, is close to the airport, in fact, it’s directly under the flight path of runway 17L, if memory serves me right. Of course, in between photographing the motorcycles racing by at 180+ miles an […]
This bad boy was delivered new to Southwest back in 2007. This was the first plane that I shot on this particular outing. It’s a Boeing 737-7H4. I took this shot from the observation spot off runway 17L at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. The -7H4 part is the Boeing moniker for a 700 series 737 […]

Sure, you could say the -700 is longer, is probably newer etc. but how can tell the 2 models apart with nothing more than a […]
Yes, these are still old shots from the Nikon that I took under the flight line at Austin Bergstrom International Airport, aka ABIA. Lots of Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 series planes fly in and out of here. I’ve gotten my 9 year old daughter to recognize that these are Southwest planes and she can spot […]
I caught this plane on short, short final to ABIA this past weekend. I used to love flying SW Airlines, but recently, they’ve been the more expensive carrier for the routes that I want to fly. I don’t understand how or why they are usually $100 more expensive than the legacy carriers, but I did […]
Southwest Airlines N459WN flying overhead on short final to ABIA in Austin. I was standing at my new favorite spotting location when I caught this bad boy going overhead. It was delivered new to Southwest Airlines and had its first flight April 14, 2004.
