Spotting In SLC

Sat May 28, 2005 10:13 am

I will be in SLC next weekend (Jun 3rd - Jun 5th) to catch a soccer game. Are there any nice spotting places around the Airport for me to go to? What A/Cs should I expect to see (I know AA flies Super 80s there, what about the other airlines?) I will probably stay at the Courtyard by the Airport. Any advices and tips will be appreciated.

Would that be Real Salt Lake.

A LOT of CRJs, CR7s and Brasilias. AM also has the M80. DL flies with 767s, 757s, 737s (among others, namely CO, UA, WN), and MD90s. A couple airlines fly in with the 32S (B6/F9/HP). HP has a CR9, NW an Avro RJ, Continental the ERJ.

From what I understand there are but I'm not sure exactly, here's some links for you:

I am assuming you are going to the world cup qualifier on June 4th. Wish I could go.

The best spotting place would be the top level of the parking garage, on the terminal one side. It offers best views of 34R/16L.

The inside of the terminals offer pretty good views of taxiways and the B concourse offers good views of runway 34R/16L.

Anyways, lots of Delta and Delta Connection in SLC.

Busiest times are in the morning from 800-1130. And then again in the afternoon from 400-800pm.

Have fun!
