Viewing Departures At IAD

Wed Aug 11, 2004 2:30 am

Anyone have any good places they know of to view departures at IAD, depending on runway operations, and not getting involved in security problems? If so, can you give directions to the various sites...I live in Arlington, so I'd be going out 7 or 66 to 28..thanks.

Try the top of the parking garage overlooking Cargo 6, to the right of the terminal as you drive in.

Providing you let the cops or airport operations know that you're going to be up there, you shouldn't have a problem, thanks to the hard work of Sunil, and other Washington area spotters.

Alternatively try the Udvar Hazy museum.
