Planes Flying Low Over Highways.

Thu Mar 09, 2006 10:17 am

Hello all, today I was driving NJ turnpike north witch parallels EWR and runways 22 & 4 but when the planes land on 29 witch comes right over the turn pike boy these planes are low. Does anybody know of any other airports that have planes come this close to the highways? I was able to see the passengers eyes that’s how low they get.

When the 24's are in use at CLE they cross I-480 just before touching down. IIRC there's even a sign that says "Warning Low Aircraft" or something to that effect when you pass the airport on I-480.

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.

LGB also has a very interesting approach, right over the 405 freeway.

At MSP traffic landing on 30L/R come right over MN-5, while 12R comes over MN-77, 12L comes over MN-62 (Crosstown Hwy), and 35 comes over I-494. Down here in PHX, 7L/R and 8 come over I-10 (Papago Fwy), and 26 and 25R (and to a lesser extent 25L) come over AZ-153 (Sky Harbor Expy) and AZ-143 (Hohokam Expy).

MIA Rwy 09 and SR 826 (aka Palmetto Expressway). Looks low because the Palmetto is built higher that the surrounding terrain.

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.

Do they really land on 01R from the South? That would be quite a sight. Heavies from 28R/L fly right over 101 after takeoff. Not a bad sight either.

The threshold for runway 15 at DCA is only about 200 or so feet from the edge of the George Washington Parkway. But they don't use that runway very often and when they do it's usually just for the regional jets and turboprops.

Route 395 and the 14th Street bridge also see their fare share of low flying aircraft when runways 19 and 15 are in use. 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.

At the bottom of this photo, you can make out the approach end to rwy 4 at LGA with the Grand Central Pkwy running right behind it.



Here is short final to rwy 4 which gives a good impression of how low they are over the Grand Central Pkwy, which is right behind that service road.

There is a sign along the highway leading to YYC from downtown Calgary that warns of low-flying aircraft, the there is a runway literally a few feet beyond the shoulder.

Let's not forget that the streets that border MDW, Cicero, 63rd, Central, and 55th, are also less than 100 feet from the overuns.

At JST, US 219 has those "Caution Low Fly Aircraft" signs, ironically it's right after a "Caution High Crosswinds" sign. The "crosswinds" to 219 would be head/tailwinds to JST though. You just never see many planes at JST.

They're pretty low over 270 into CMH. Low enough that I catch myself rubbernecking a bit driving through there. : (

IN-49 when landing on 9, or US 30 when landing on 18 @ little VPZ.

Here in ABE... US 22 and Airport Road/Rt 987 both, on the relatively rare occassions they use 13/31, also has some low flyers on approach to 31 or takeoff from 13. The street lights on 987 actually are of a low-profile design to not be an obstruction.

And... how can anyone forget Midway coming in over all those surface streets.

Someone else posted LGA, which I was going to say, but add JFK to that as well. So basically all three NYC airports have major roads right next to one or more runways.

The closest road to JFK's approaches is not technically a "highway", but it is a pretty busy road - Rockaway Blvd. You can see it at the bottom of this photo:

The Belt Parkway is only about 1/8 mile away, though, if you want to limit it totally to major highways.

The LGA situation is annoying to people who have to drive by the airport every day, because there is a *lot* of rubbernecking on the Grand Central Parkway when planes are taking off from that end of the runway (landing is not as bad). Cars literally slow down to look at the planes as they wait on the taxiway to get onto the runway, and also to see them take off. With the elevation of the airport and the lack of walls (most of LGA is walled, but not this part), it's almost like airplanes are on parade here. This is a major New York artery too, so any slowdown like that almost immediately turns into a massive traffic jam. Going either into or out of the city, there's almost always a jam starting about a mile out from the airport that ends up completely disappearing once you're past it.

Here's a shot that shows a little bit of what I'm talking about, taken from planeview park (this guy was landing, but just imagine a lineup of planes here going in the other direction):

http://www.jwnyc.com/photos/lga.jpg

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.

That was Air Florida, and I think it was a 727. My uncle, who used to work for the Washington, DC city government, was inspecting the bridge for snow removal when the plane crashed into it. He had the only radio that could talk to police and fire, so he stayed on scene until the rescue effort was over..

Stapleton used to have a taxiway and runway that crossed I-70. Of course, the airport is closed now.

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.

MDW is tucked in real tight with the surrounding streets (55th, Cicero/IL-50, 63rd, and Central) as we saw when the WN jet crashed through the fence.

Here is one from Hamburg, Germany where a runway crosses a highway.

Though not as close to the threshold as say, ATL or LGA, U.S. 59 North (Eastex Freeway) in Houston by Intercontinental Airport (IAH) has its high mast lighting on one section modified in such a way that they're significantly lower than the other normal high mast lights. The reason the lighting masts are so low is that traffic approaching runway 27 flies over the Eastex Freeway pretty low.

Texas State Highway 35 (Telephone Road) by Hobby Airport (HOU) has jets screaming over it during landings on runways 17, 12R, 12L and down towards Almeda-Genoa Road, runway 4. The runway 17 approaches usually come more over Airport Blvd, east of rather than over its intersction with Telephone Road. 12R/L approaches come almost directly over the intersection of Telephone Rd. and Airport Blvd, more like a little bit south of the intersection. To give you an idea of how close the thresholds are to Telephone Rd., if some of you remember, a few months ago, a fence was clipped at HOU by a small, twin engined prop approaching either 12R or 12L. An automobile may have been involved too, but nobody was hurt. As for runway 4, there is approach lighting located in the median of Telephone Road on that stretch.

At MSY, the I-10 is close to the threshold of runway 19, as is the I-310 to runway 10.

Planes also pass right over Veterans Blvd. on approach to 19 or taking off from 1. A landing on 28 or a rare take off from 10 will take you directly over the Airport Access Road. Landings on 1 go over Airline Drive/US-61

The runway at GIB is actually bisected by a highway. At AEP, you are right in the city and get planes just over a road as well.

To add to what you said for those who may not know, RW 25 has only a visual circling approach, which may add a bit to the potential hazard of such arrivals, especially when they come in low. That's probably also one of the reasons 25 has an almost 1000 feet long displaced threshold area for safety.

SJC is also particularly interesting because standing in downtown San Jose gives you some of the best spotting in the area! It's great hearing the biggies reverberating off the buildings downtown, like when UA's ORD flight is arriving in the evening.

There's also an access road that runs right behind 30L.

@F9fan - that picture from Hamburg - it is not actually a runway but a taxiway leading from the main site of the Airbus plant in Finkenwerder to the completion centre. The picture was taken at XFW, not HAM. The runway at XFW feature something unique, when planes are landing over the River Elbe they have to observe ship traffic. A 7500 TEU Container vessel has priority over a plane, the buses can land only when the ship has cleared.

BTW, travelling this road for another 2 miles you reach a shipyard, building planes and ships is very close together in Hamburg.

At Liverpool Airport in the UK, there is a country road which passes at the end of RWY 27, there are warning lights to ask you to stop when an aircraft is landing, usually Easyjet or Ryanair and sometimes the odd B757 Britannia Airways. There is also a little place to park your car which is raised as well, where you are nearly level with the aircraft as they fly the final few feet on approach.

SDF: Whenever runways 17L and 17R are in use you will see planes come in low over I-264. I-65 also sort of zig-zags across town between downtown Louisville and SDF, so if you're in the right place at the right time you can get a good flyby.

On the right side of the pic is I-264, running past the the parallel runways. I-65 runs across the picture and right by runway 29, but that runway is seldomly used except during crosswind conditions. You won't see much action on it.

RE: Planes Flying Low Over Highways.

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.

I love that one about 'Swerve to avoid them'  smile 

I guess the only usefulness of these signs would be to sort of mentally prepare drivers for the fact that they may see a low flying plane and not get startled by the sight of one while driving....
