aircraft watchers! I have been looking at the various possibilities for watching the A380 arrival/departure, as well as other aircraft viewing, and I came up with the following spots...
I'd love to hear comments from those of you that probably do this more often than I. The spots, some doable and maybe some are not, are...
A. Coyote Point: 2.75 miles from the 28 runway thresholds, but almost right under the flight path ($5 for park ent.?)
B. Fishing Area: less than two miles from thresholds, but .6 miles from flight path
C. Bayfront Park: obviously a popular spot, .9 mile to 28L threshold
D. Terminal area: possible viewpoints from restaurant and Airtrain
E. International Terminal parking lots: pretty tall and should allow nice look-down on planes on west side of A & G wings
F. General Aviation terminal: I don't know anything about access or view, might be good for runway roll-off or telephoto
G. Elevated parking structure: again, don't know about access to this lot, but could be terrific for take off views.
