Fourteen months away from traveling inspired me to start a project I’ve threatened to undertake for a long time.
When boarding a plane, I often wonder, Have I flown this exact aircraft before? I don’t mean just the type of aircraft (i.e., 737-800). But have I ridden in that same plane multiple times?
So I created my personal flight logbook. I created a link so you can download and modify it for your own travels. (Or add even more details.)
Here are a couple of random examples I included to get us started.
I’m a big fan of FlightRadar24. It usually displays exact aircraft types and tail numbers (provided I don’t get them at the airport).
I live under a busy approach path — and it’s always fun to see Southwest’s various liveries flying past our house. It’s even more fun when I see “Maryland One” (N214WN), which I once rode. Like, I genuinely get a little excited. So it’s reasons like that I created this logbook.
Now, I won’t have time to check every plane flying overhead or the ones I spot in airports. But just for some fun, light, #AvGeek enjoyment, this will keep me more entertained than it probably should. 🙂 See? Like Toby Radloff (Judah Friedlander) in American Splendor, I consider myself a nnnerd.
I’ll see how long I keep up with my personal flight logbook. Thanks to websites and apps like FlightRadar24, we can go back a ways to get information for most commercial flights, so that certainly helps.
But this also creates a fun, free keepsake for the obsessed #AvGeeks amongst us.
I hope you enjoy it!
