My son and I went up to Dallas Fort Worth Int'l Airport (DFW) on Saturday to do some plane spotting. The weather was fabulous, and we bagged a few new aircraft for our life list (it's a lot like bird watching). Since DFW is an American Airlines hub, you see lots of AA liveries, both new and old. But there are always a few surprises along the way. In the lead image, a British Airways 747-400 (G-BYGB) arrives from London Heathrow.

One of the newest additions to the American Airlines fleet, this Boeing 787-8 arrived after a training flight over Midland, TX. The color is a little wonky in this image (see my post about the issues I'm having with RAW images). The new grey livery really doesn't photograph as well as the classic polished aluminum livery. See the 737 farther down the post.

A Qantas Airbus 380 (VH-AQJ) arrives from Sydney, Australia. This was one for our life list. We also spotted an Emirates A380 depart, but the light earlier in the day made for an unacceptable photograph.
