For any of you who want a good spotting area at Washington Dulles (IAD) go to the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum just south of the airport. The road to the parking lot runs perpendicular to the runway, forgot which number, and you can get a good view of landing planes If you are visiting the museum, it's great, the lot is $12. In the lot, you can get even better pictures. I sat in my car waiting for planes and in 5 minutes, I got a great shot of a UA 767 in new colors, and an Alitalia 777. The museum is a Smithsonian so its free.

If you see, probably about 80% of the shots are taken from this spot. I personally don't like it and it gets boring if you spot there alot. But it's a great place to hangout. I think the parking garage is better, but still, it's now hard to spot at IAD for free.
Is the bus from IAD to the museum free or do they charge $12?
