    ATL Spotting Review

    Hi All,

    I spent last weekend at ATL shooting from my favorite hotel. Here are some shots from Saturday and Sunday. My frame of the day was SkyWest CRJ-900 in 35th Anniversary colors.





















    Take care,
    Rafal

    what's that dome in the background of the 4th picture? looks like a space observatory.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Looks like a water tower to me.

    Have to love those simulaneous takeoffs. Great vantage point to get both at the same time. Saves the trouble of which do I shoot.

    I'm sorry but don't get me wrong, I like the Skywest shot but I think that paintjob just outright copies the Horizon Q400 50th paintscheme.

    I never realized how nice DL's wavy tails can look if you line them up together.

    Yes these pictures were taken from room 1024. If you ask me the best room for spotting is 1026 but you can request 1025, or 1023 to get nice shots. In general all rooms 7th floor and up on the airport side are good for spots.
    You can go to my site http://www.flyiad.net/atl2005/index.htm and see picture of the room. You are sitting on the balcony drinking cold brew and taking pictures.
    This shot was from the room on the 9th floor (before I knew about 1026).
    This is Reinessance hotel in ATL airport. Check for weekend specials - they run Spotters Special once in a while. It includes high floor facing the airport, airport diagram, and special notepad to note regs. :)
