Honolulu Spotting Snapshot

by Matt Falcus

Colin Wells was a recent visitor to Honolulu Airport in Hawaii and spent some time photographing aircraft movements at the famous crossing point of East and West in the middle of the Pacific.

Traffic at Honolulu is heavily dominated by inter-island traffic and airlines from the mainland United States. It is also on the route map of many Asian carriers.

The best place for Honolulu spotting is Lagoon Drive, where these photographs were taken from.

Can you get to the Lagoon Drive spotting location using public transport?
