I am travel and aviation obsessed!
Since the age of 11 or 12 I have had a fascination for airplanes but it wasn’t until I learnt more about the different types that I became really interested in them. Quite recently, my interest became more orientated around flying and travel. I live in the South East of England in close proximity to LGW, LHR and LCY so can easily make my way to any of those airports to travel.
At the beginning of the year, I flew onboard Air France’s new 787 product and that really kickstarted a hobby for me. I wrote up the blog post to my Instagram immediately and was lucky enough to be contacted by Air France, thanking me for such a detailed write-up. Since then, I have been contacted by airlines and airports and love reviewing different flights while keeping up to date with the breaking news of the aviation world. My page has grown and grown and I love sharing my posts with all of you every day.
My Instagram, ‘londonspotter’, is where I share all my travel snaps but it occurred to me that if I were to write detailed blog posts, a real website would suit me better – so here we are!

I am a travel addict and love everything about aviation. I first became interested in aviation at the age of 7, making weekly trips to the Runway Visitor Park at Manchester Airport. Since then, I’ve been hooked, with my enthusiasm growing and growing. Now, I run an aviation account on Instagram – @ethanegcc – and have become an author here on the LondonSpotter site. Global politics and aviation often go hand in hand, so – aside from my passion for civil aviation – I also have a keen interest in politics and human Geography. With this in mind, I’ll be reporting on all the breaking news in the aviation world, bringing you the full story and analysing what it means for the future of the industry. I’ll also be publishing in-depth airline reviews, in the endeavour of growing the blog, and fuelling my hobby in the process. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me, via my Instagram account. Enjoy our blog!
I’ll be in the air next on the 14th April, and will be reporting on Flybe’s inaugural flight between London and Antwerp, examining what it means for connectivity in Flanders. In May, I’ll be reviewing Air Transat’s Option Plus product.
Take a look at my Instagram feed:
As my passion for aviation grew, so did my love of photography. Instagram was the perfect place for me to combine the two. At first I was as bad as you could get, over exposed, blurry, generally awful. I went spotting more and more and my knowledge of aircraft and photography grew. I began taking flights just to catch specific aircrafts, I had caught the bug as they say. I soon begun upgrading my camera gear and exploring new countries, spotting and generally being an annoying tourist. This year alone I have already been on 21 flights visiting 7 different countries. Flying around Europe with my camera and my Instagram with friends I have made through the social media site. And now I have branched into the world of blogging after joining the team at londonspotter.co.uk
