IFP Is An Awesome Airport To Spot At!

Thu Dec 08, 2005 5:39 am

I've been down in IFP (Laughlin, NV /Bullhead City, AZ) and there is a road that goes right by the end of the runway on the north side that gives an awesome good view down the runway and everything.. I tried to get a picture but the sun was at the wrong angle.. they don't get much for big planes other than the SY/G4 charters.. but it still is really cool. I'll try to get a picture when I'm down there Thursday. I think we have some IFP members that hopefully know what I'm talking about.

I will be at IFP in a couple of weeks! Probably right after X-Mas. I use the road you spoke of to enter the Airport since I am coming from Laughlin. I am there all the time in the winter. When you are there check to see if the new terminal is done! It should be, it was very behind when I left in March. SCY is scheduled service and G4 is charters for Harrah's mostly. You may get lucky and see the Sky King 732 which does charters for the Riverside and other houses. There is a C130 that comes in once in a while. FlagshipAZ (Tom) lives right under the approach to 34. I will try to get a hold of him. I love shooting from the road you spoke of when they arrive 16. Which is where I shot the pic above. Make sure to eat at IN-N-OUT! If you stay till Friday night the Flamingo has a great seafood buffet.
Hey that guy with the private jet can bail us out! Why? HE CAN AFFORD IT!

I would avoid that one. I ate in there when they first opened and quickly noticed the employees had the worst attitude. One night two of them got in this bad fight I actually left. I noticed the one down 95 is better and has much better service. Hey don't forget El Palacio in Bullhead! Awesome Mexican food!

Make sure to take notes when you are at IFP!  point

I can't wait to get back there. Their Burritos and Chimichungas are awesome!

Have a good trip down. I will email you when I get there since I will be heading to LAS soon after!  biggrin
