My sightings are different than most, because my airport is smaller and my interests are kind of in line with that...my numbers also pale in comparison to you guys!

Total sightings: 1163

Airline

NetJets Sales Inc 80

American Airlines 40

Surf Airlines Inc 34

Bank of Utah Trustee (underwrites several different smaller operators) 32

Aeromexico 32

Type

Pilatus PC-12 38

PH100- 29

Pilatus PC-12- 24

EMB-505 Phenom 300 24

Cessna 525B CitationJet CJ3 22

Cessna 525 CitationJet CJ1 22

(I listed 6, because the PC-12 is in there twice...there's another set of CJ3's further down on my list)

Almost all of my sightings are at my home airport of McClellan-Palomar (IATA: CLD; FAA: KCRQ), unless I catch them on the descent pattern for LAX from home, in which case I consider them OTT. Others I've listed as OFF, when I have no idea where they are going or coming from. That's something that happens when you fall in love with the little planes.

Thanks for sharing bengleman, we try and accommodate all tastes here at PlaneLogger, from those that spot the big jets, to those that only spot light aircraft.

Nice idea. Here's mine - I've excluded "Unknown" from the airports - I didn't record where I had seen an aircraft until around 15 years ago, when I moved from the annual Airline Fleets paper book to an electronic database.

Total Sightings: 11,821 aircraft at 135 airports.

Top Airlines:

  1. British Airways - 638
  2. Lufthansa - 370
  3. American Airlines - 327
  4. United Airlines - 322
  5. Aeroflot - 264
  6. Delta Airlines - 220

Top Aircraft

  1. A320-214 - 187
  2. Tu-154M - 186
  3. A320-232 - 174
  4. MD-82 - 160
  5. Tu-154-B2 - 149
  6. A320-211 - 148

Top Airports

  1. LHR - 1147
  2. SVO - 404
  3. CGK - 358
  4. DME - 337
  5. DEL - 292
  6. ALA - 285

Much of my early spotting was at LHR and I made a few trips to USA where I acquired a lot of the US carriers and the MD80s. From the mid 90s I travelled frequently to Scandinavia (more MD80s), South Africa and parts of the former Soviet Union, then since 1998 I've lived overseas, moving around - 5 years in Russia & the CIS, a couple of years in the Middle East, then 3 years in Delhi, 6 years in Indonesia and now another couple of years in the former Soviet Union, so these get reflected in the airports and aircraft types more than the airlines.
