First I would like to thank the Port of portland for adding move levels to the garage several years ago. With this addition the garage is truly an awsome location for viewing plane activities on both the north and south runway. Now that the north runway is under repair, the south runway experience reminds me of San Diego international since it only has a single runway and is bustling with activity. Also, today I had the honor of witnessing a C-5 lift off utilizing only 4000 ft. of the 11,000 ft. South runway before rotation. I was completely blown away of the sight of this mammoth Aircraft. I wish that I could locate the Military flights schedule out of PDX
because I would love to see that bird agian. Does anyone know if PDX
has a true peak hour period and when?
