A small viewing area where arrivals on runway 30 and takeoffs from runway
12 are visible. Also possible to see departures on runway 30, but this is not
the best spot for that. This spot is best for runway 30 arrivals with aircraft
flying directly overhead, along with runway 12 departures in the opposite
Arrivals on runway 30 are very low and are an impressive sight. Heavy
aircraft taking off from 12 are also impressive.
Since the spot is across a highway from the airport, you will need a long lens
for runway 12 departures. Perimeter fencing and ILS antennae
will obscure the touchdown point.
None, this is a dedicated viewing area.
Good for photography and videos, provided you have enough zoom. This location is near a trailer dumping station, so there can be lots of traffic in the summer.
