A window seat for me is an absolute must! I like to sit just behind the wing so I can see the ground below and also so I can see the flaps etc. in action.
I also like to sit in front of the wing for the extra peace and quiet, unless there is a screaming child sitting nearby!

I too have sat in the back. ONly problem with that is trying to photograph things on the ground you have to shoot thru jet exhaust usually. I wish I could sit in the front though - in front of the wing just far enough to clear the engine and get a view. I tried that once, on a northwest airbus, I took the second row of coach (6?) but it was still partly blocked.

A window seat behind the wing.I like it close enough to get a nice view of the wings/flaps/spoilers/etc. and enough for a good view of the ground.A window seat up front infront of the engine is fine too.I WOULD NEVER EVER want to be in the center seat in a 2-5-2 config. right above the wings.2 people on both side of you,and the little view you have outside is obscured by the damn wing.

If the seat is in coach: Last row, aisle seat. Easy access to the lav and galley (both are essential when consuming beer), good view of everything going on in the cabin, potential for a rougher ride if turbulence is encountered , and most important - No kids kicking the back of the seat!

Generally, in the airport terminal itself, watching the plane pull away from the gate as I have already been Voluntarily Denied Boarding, and then cashing in the free United Airlines ticket for another trip...
