Spotters Logbook Updated
Long time followers of DFW Tower have probably seen, many times, me posting a link with the day's aircraft I've spotted at DFW, typically with the words "world record." What is this all about?
To my knowledge, there is nobody else, at least on the internet, that maintains a larger spotters logbook than I do. With the latest update (attached), I am at nearly 95,000 entries. This spans nearly 20 years, and covers a few thousand (almost exclusively commercial) aircraft, some of which I've seen dozens, even over a hundred times. The logbook shows where and when I've seen each plane.
Is there any real value to this information? Not really, other than to me in that I find it interesting to keep track of what I've seen. Its a cheap hobby, for sure. Here it is in Excel form.
