It was quite interesting, seeing aircraft come towards you from the east, then turning away from you, and pointing dircetly at you at lower than normal altitudes from the northeast. My dad was sitting in our car and I yell to him to look up, and he couldn't believe it either! Seeing an MD-80 turning to the runway so close to us. The folk who are building the new Brookpark Rd. have created an enormous mound. I've climbed it several times, and you are almost as high as the aircraft, less a couple feet. It's really cool because you could practically wave to the people inside and they'd probably see you. I took a pic of a NW DC-9 following suit with Delta, from this mound, and you can see the aircraft is just slightly lower than me in the pic, when they are developed.
If a whole family was to stand on that mound, or a large group of tall people, and aircraft had to land on 24R for some reason, you could have St. Maarten day at CLE!
