It now looks as if I will be heading up to motown and flint next week. So I'd like some advice on locations along my route and there. I have not spent much time there at all since I moved away 12 years ago. I do not think I will be flying so forget terminals. what about Perimeter? Where can you get a decent view of arriving traffic at DTW? What is the most popular place with locals? I'd like to at least be able to get some of the widebodies that frequent Detroit.

also, what about Flint (FNT). Has anyone been there, is there anywhere outside the perimeter or a parking garage maybe? that offers good views at this small airport.

Also, since I will be driving, I will be passing SDF, which I know has good spots, but also what is it like at CVG? Would I do better taking the highway that passes thru IND or CVG? (which is better). And, I know its a small airport but has anyone shot at TOL?

where was this photo taken from at IND? Looks like a great place to spot from!

Thanks for any tips you might have. I know there are better airports that are easier to spot at but I'm not going there just for spotting. It's business but I'd like to see whatever there is while I am there.

I don't know if there is a road that connects IND to CVG, you may have to go through DAY, which has some ok cargo planes (omni and world dc-10's and md11's)

Go big or go home

Unfortunately, I don't think the spot at IND is there anymore. Too bad, it was a GREAT spot.

To most people, the sky is the limit. To those who love aviation, the sky is home
