    That SBA is SICK. What a catch. Where's that from?

    Heck, therre's that PronAir Mad Dog from?

    that all-white MD-80. Is that an Alaska bird or one of those US Marshals aircraft?

    Excellent coverage. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks guys.

    Phil- SBA is Venezuela's Santa Barbara. Thats a temp reg, it'll be leaving MIA in a couple more days with a YV registration. Thats their second 757 in new colors.

    Pronair is a new carrier in Spain that 717 was being delivered.

    And the white MD is ex-Alaska currently flying for the Department of Justice.

    I'd also like to note that the Swiss 340 is an equipment upgrade, we used to get the 330's. But ever since Alitalia switched Miami-Milan for Miami-Rome, Swiss has seen growing numbers on it's MIA-ZRH loads.

    Nice catch on the Santa Barbara and the 2 Spanish mad dogs.

    I'm pretty sure that Pronair is an MD-87.

    I'm pretty sure you guys are right on the Pronair. I was never good at identifying MD's apart from the obvious ones. (MD-11, DC-10)

    Mark- Thanks, if you come down make sure to bring a cooler with plenty of water. And apart from the internationals around 4-6PM theres not much. Thats the best time to come. Let me know and I'll try and head out. :borat:

    Nice. Wonder what's up with the all white Mad Dog, ex-Alaska Airlines bird. And what are the odds of catching two Spanish LCC delivery flights in one day?
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    those last two are awesome! love watching wx like that forming.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Cool Pic's 8) I could see myself at MIA quite often after I move to the MIA/FLL area. Great airport to spot at!!!!!!!. I only have 2 more majors to visit here in FL(MCO AND PBI) then I have all of Florida covered. Have to love those huge Florida Cumulonimbii'

    Wow and you call yourself a plane geek? Yes Phil its a 717, Spanair is Europe's largest 717 operator.

    The Pronair catch is simply fantastic, they have such an interesting paint scheme. I'm not big on SBA's new colors, the older colors seemed more South American. This one looks like its a sports charter.
