From the article:
"And its new location will allow even easier access to tourists who come to North Texas and want to do something fun and free with the family."
I guess this puts to rest the rumors about charging for admission!
Yeah is going to be great! As a spotter who's been using the temporary gravel / trash dump Founder's for I don't know how long, it will be a nice improvement!
And, I can't wait to see some of the views from the new location. While it is located directly in front of the UPS center, it is much closer to 18R, which means we should get great landing shots (with wind from the South).
And for those of us who are tired of endless silver MD80's, I have seen just about every major international carrier land on 18R including BA, LH and Korean.
Also, the jumbo Cargos will be coming up that taxiway, so all in all, should make for some excellent spotting!

Excellent news. According to a comment left on the article, one might be able to sneak into it already. I don't know if they still have barricades up or not. If they do, then I wouldn't go around them.
But I can't wait. What I saw a couple of weeks ago looks great.

I spent many afternoons at the old Founder's Plaza studying Sabre formats for my core Sabre training when I first started my career with American Airlines. I hope to get back to DFW to check out the new and improved Founder's Plaza. I can only hope that is has the spectacular close up views of aircraft that I so enjoyed at the old location.
