hi all. i just found out that FI serves BWI. how? well, i happened to be loading a flight for BWI and noticed the connection on the bag tag. well that's fine and dandy info on it's own. i had no idea. now, that makes me want to take a trip down there to snap a few pix. can anyone help me out with locations, aircraft movements and other such info? i'd be flying in on US, most likely in the morning. what time does the good stuff come in? what are the best locations? do i need to rent a car? (prefer not to have to)

Well BWI has it's own observation area, but the view isn't that remarkable. If you want a nice view try going to one of the daily lots next to rwy 15R/33L. There's always cross runway traffic @ BWI with aircraft coming in on 15R/33L and 10/28 at the same time ALL the time. The good stuff... well... if you consider SW the good stuff, don't worry, you'll get PLENTY of those since BWI is one of their focus cities. We've got regular BA 772 and 763 service, Ghana Airways blesses us with DC-10's, Aer Lingus 330's, Icelandair 752's, Air Jamaica 321's, World Airways MD-11's... and the occasional Heavylift An-124.

The British Airways flight comes into BWI at 3:45pm, but I think that's about to change to a 4:15pm arrival. The Aer Lingus arrives at 5:55pm. The Icelandair flight arrives at 6:50pm. As far as the military charters go, which most often include ATA L1011s, Omni Air International DC-10s, World Airways DC-10s and MD-11s, and an Air Transport International DC-8, the schedules tend to vary. As far as a rental car is concerned, I don't think it's really necessary. You should be able to get to enough good spots without one.

On most days they will use 33R for arrivals and you can go to the airport viewing park and get great pictures of arrivals (do a search). It's probaly a 5.00 to 7.00 cab ride or a brisk 25 to 30 minute walk on the bike trail (it circles the airport).The info everybody said is right but somedays are better than others. We have the Global Peace Ambassodors 747SP here and a Antonov 124 on the deicing pad.And don't forget the Ghana dc-10 still here on taxiway echo.
