IND Spotting

Sat Apr 03, 2004 2:15 am

I have lived here in Indianapolis for 3 years but never got around to see if there is a spotting place. Does anyone know of one around the airport? I thought i saw one just off of I-465.

Only spotting I've been able to do at IND was from the cabin of a DL 737 as we taxied in last fall. Did see a Grumman Bearcat (my favorite warbird) in between some hangars east of the terminal. I didn't notice a particularly intriguing batch of aircraft at IND, except for the F8F.

There used to be a south airpark between I-70 and 5/23 and another over by INDy Center, both were closed after 9-11. I haven't tried any spotting since then.

I've heard that you can get some decent landing shots from the roof of the parking garage. Worth a shot!
