Quoting B742 (Thread starter): I've been told that sunrise in Miami will be around 07:05 on December 26th, is this correct?
Yes, but twilight starts at 0640...
Quoting B742 (Thread starter): Also where can I go for some decent spotting of both arrivals and departures, I am looking at doing some photography?
Three places include:
the parking lot of a restaurant, the 94th Aero Squadron, at the corner of NW57th Avenue (Red Road) and NW 12th Street (Perimeter Road) on the south side of the airport...go behind the restaurant and there is a large parking lot located there. Obstructions include (infrequent) passing trains, and you can see take-offs / landings from 9 / 27 and 12/30.
The parking lot of a furniture store (ElDorado, I think...) at NW 72nd Avenue...continue west on Perimeter Road. It is at the threshold of R9 / 27, and you can see the arrivals (eastward landings) of many inbound Latin America flights, or the departures if they are using a westbound traffic pattern. Also good visibility of the western ramp of Cargo City. Not the greatest location, however...
NW 67th Avenue (Ludlam Road) and PBA Memorial Blvd is just to the SW of the intersection of 8L and 8R and 12, and offers the most views of take-offs and landings if traffic is eastbound, or if westbound mostly the climb-outs of aircraft taking off. Expect to see AA...and AA....and more AA...
