What Airport Has The Best Arr/Dep View?

Fri Dec 17, 2004 4:24 am

I have seen the post about the hardest places to land, which led to some fabulous photo postings, i would like to ask this....Obviously some of the worlds smaller airports give spectacular views (INN comes to mind), but out of the larger airports, in your opinions, which put on the best show for the passengers (and pilots too!!)?

 Smile/happy/getting dizzy


I will start it off with my own favourite - Seattle/Tacoma WA, SEA/KSEA
(the view just gets better every time if your luckey enough for it to be clear!!)

Watch out, my friend, change the title to something without a question mark or it will soon disappear to the realm of "aviation polls and preferences"

Change the title to something else, like "The view above Sea-Tac!"
