|Quoting Aileron11 (Thread starter):
Does anybody know of any other airports that have planes come this close to the highways?
|Quoting Flyinround731 (Reply 3):|
I-85 and I-75 in Atlanta come to mind.
|Quoting EI A330-200 (Reply 12):|
LAX gets a really cool approach. You parallel the 105 freeway, and you know you're about to touch down when you cross the 405. I can tell you, it can be dangerous driving around the airport when the heavies are landing because drivers get so distracted.
|Quoting Eastbay (Reply 15):|
A very rare arrival, but 01R in SFO passes just over the 101. I've only landed that way one time in my life....

I'm sure you all recall the terrible crash many years back when the jet (I don't recall the airline, but it was something from Florida, and I believe it was a 732) went down just after takeoff and smashed through the 14th street bridge.
|Quoting F9fan (Reply 35):|
Planes taking off from runway 25 at LAS are very low over Las Vegas Blvd. The passengers on the starboard side of the aircraft have a view almost as good as those passing by.
|Quoting Dalb777 (Reply 10):|
At MSY, the I-10 is close to the threshold of runway 19, as is the I-310 to runway 10.
|Quoting CRAviation (Reply 18):|
SJO Rwy 25 and the Interamerican Highway, there's also a perimeter road bordering the airport fence. Trees had to be cut down close to this road due to planes hitting them with the landing gear some years ago.

What a sight bouncy
|Quoting Spacecadet (Reply 30):|
One thing I always thought was funny is that the Parkway around LGA has signs that say "Low Flying Planes". I always wonder what you're supposed to *do* with that information. Swerve to avoid them?
Edit: I just read some posts above and saw that LGA is not the only airport with these signs (I didn't figure it was). I still don't really see the point of them, though - it's an airport, for crying out loud.
