Air Traffic at Phoenix Sky Harbor
April - June 2011



Most of the air traffic at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is single aisle twinjets of US Airways and Southwest Airlines. The only regularly scheduled 747 service to Phoenix Sky Harbor is British Airways 747-436 Flight 289 from London Heathrow. During the winter it arrives after sunset, but with the change in time it is now arriving in the late afternoon.

See the location where I photographed air traffic at Sky Harbor Airport from April to June 2011 in Google Earth.
