SFO Spotting Info Request

Thu Aug 16, 2001 2:16 am

I'm looking to do some spotting at SFO later this week, and was hoping anyone familiar with it could fill me in on where the best places around the airport to spot are. I will be in a car, and unfortunately will have my dog, so I will probably not go inside any terminals. Thanks in advance.

The best place to watch planes at SFO outside the terminals is at the public viewing lot at the end of 1R. It is located just north of the intersection of Millbrae Av and Old Bayshore Hwy. Also if you want to walk your dog, Bayfront Park, loccated at the same location gives you good view of planes landing on the 28's. Unfortunately photography is not very good at these locations but if you are interested in just spotting then these are fine.

For more info about spotting at SFO, you can check out my website, Golden Gate Airliners, at
