5 years of aviation spotting topic

Hello wonderful humans of the WFC,

So today (25/7/22) marks 5 years since I started liking aviation. Here are some key milestones along that journey bcz why not:

  • I started liking aviation on the 25th July 2017

  • My oldest surviving picture is of a KC135

  • I joined the IFC on the 21st May 2020

  • I joined the WFC on the 29th December 2021 (thx to @PlanesAndGames kinda) :eyes: , we shall get to that later

  • To this day i have flown on 7 aircraft (list in chronological order) (G-JEDM, G-FLBD, EI-GXM, EI-GSG, G-EZAU, G-EZBY, G-EZUS, G-EZUT)

Anyway shall we get to the spotting:

the only surviving pic from my first trip to LHR, i remember hoping for an EK A380 that day when now i know there is like 6 of them per day at LHR


back when easyjets old livery was about

this seems like a good time to tell y’all why juegos helped me join the WFC. so basically after finding this place, i saw juegos was here and immediately joined after that because i thought it was cool he was here. So thanks @PlanesAndGames :wink:
