Hi all, This was our last day in the USA and we still had more Boeing MAX to see! By now it was clear that this might be the last trip away for the foreseeable future and what a trip it was! I was converted to using PlaneBase a few years back and all the […]

Hi all, Penultimate day of our USA MAX bash and we are back in Phoenix. Now this routing might seem strange as we were here a few days earlier, but of course the original plan was to see us spending today at Luke AFB for the airshow. As we knew this had been cancelled just […]

Hi all, Our last day in Seattle saw us revisit all the Boeing sites again. I had been tempted to go to NAS Whidbey Island but I would have wanted to spend a good part of the day there and there were still some other things to do in the general Seattle area. Also as […]

Hi all, Of the overall Boeing MAX hunt, this was the most eagerly awaited day where we would get to see over 200 of them parked up at Moses Lake. I suspect many of us would never have heard of this place before the Boeing facility started being used to relieve the Seattle Boeing fields……how […]

Hi all, Today was going to be a mammoth drive of 385 miles from Oceanside to Phoenix. Of course that figure was much more as we naturally didn’t go the direct route! The original plan was for us to have been in El Centro this morning ready for the show and then followed up with […]
