Spotting @ IAD

Tue Oct 23, 2001 3:28 am

I would like to go spotting @ IAD but I am affraid I'll be harassed and chased away!! Has anyone been there lately, and where do you go for spotting (other than next to the cargo building behind the fence)? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Atwingo, I visited IAD on Sep 1, purely for spotting. After staying inside for a few hours I drove around the perimeter, but could not find a place to spot. There is an employee parking lot near Atlantic Coast hangar which I believe is next to a taxiway. Of course, the rules have all changed now. If aircraft are landing from the north in the afternoon sunlight, picturesmay be possible from the daily parking lots. I can't be sure because aircraft were landing in the opposite direction the day I was there. Happy spotting. Smile/happy/getting dizzy
