    MCO spotting Feb 3rd

    I drove to MCO today to get a shot of the Zoom 767-300. Unfortunatly I botched it thx to some runway confusion betwen the pilot and controller and then me putting in the wrong approach frequency. The ground shot totally sux thx to the jetway- I HATE JETWAYS. WHY is it that the jetway is ALWAYS on the side of the plane I am on? I just dont get it.
    I deiced to shoot the other stuff there. I had the BA-11s shots from before but I figured I might as well shoot it again. Last shot was 2001 when both of them were there.
    I don't think I even bothered to get out for a single shot.

    Did I mention I hate jetways?

    It's parked there. I was down in Orlando last October and saw her there, but didn't get a chance to get a shot.

    I think he didn't get that it was stored Senga.

    You got some nice catches and when you get back up to New York, Zoom will be waiting for you come June!

    Hope Florida is good and hope those storms didn't effect you too much.

    Oh, it was in such good condition (Omit missing engines and APU) and I thought it was on a taxiway, so I made the assumption that it was taxing... My bad. :oops:

    Didnt know about the 2 BA11s that have been at MCO for ages?
    The US air titles are evne mroe washed away since I shot it in 2001.

    One if left better get it soon id say. It looks really silly up on stilts like that. The other one had the gear and all.
    NWAfan I thought you were being sarcastic or something heeeee.

    Sorry you didn't get your shot of Zoom.

    I did some spotting at MCO last March and was pleased to see C-GZMM:

    Winglets747,
    I got it but I didn't get it very well :(
    I tell you with my light and your obstruction free shot we could have combined the 2 and we would have had a good one :)
    I guess it comes to MCO once in a while then.
    How many 767s does Zoom have?

    BTW in the BAC 1-11 shot you can see the remains of the other one

    Airfleets says 4 767s:
    26263 (592) 767-306ER 19/01/2006 C-GZNC
    27135 (493) 767-328ER 01/06/2003 C-GZUM Named City of Ottawa
    27136 (497) 767-328ER 01/01/2004 C-GZMM Named City of Halifax
    27957 (587) 767-306ER 28/04/2005 C-GZNA named City of Toronto

    Funny that we both saw C-GZMM, then again, chances were good.

    Thanks for posting the info Winglets747. I have always liked the Zoom colors. I hope it comes back again so I can get another go at it.

    Wait Wait Wait.... you, myself, and Alexa? huh?


    Senga, I saw that Zoom taxi to the gate after arriving on 35R while I was at work yesterday. I wanted to stop and admire that unique scheme but I was so swamped at work I had a quick glance and had to run to my next pushback. Good times. We still need to meetup sometime Senga. Hope to see you soon!
