This category is intended for sites dealing with the hobby of aircraft spotting. Aircraft spotting generally consists of people identifying interesting or unusual aircraft and photographing them. Spotting is not restricted to aircraft in flight, nor to just commercial aviation. Many hobbyists specialize in interests such as military spotting, aircraft dismantling, old and abandoned airfields and most any category of aircraft such as: propeller, transport, commercial, jets, or unique color schemes.
