Best US Airports For Spotting

Mon Aug 28, 2000 5:05 am

What airports Dallas and eastward are the best spotting for any airline except US majors. I like to go spotting, but I can only go on day trips. Please say if they make you show them your boarding pass to go through security, don't have many windows in the concourses, etc. Any responses will be appreciated.

Why are the Hartford police so up in arms over spotters anyway?

LaGuardia can be good if 31 is being used for arrivals. You can sit at the gas station (I think it's a Mobile) on the Grand Central Pkwy. Not too many heavies, but major frequency.

There is only one good area at Bradley outside the terminals, on the south end of the property.

Don't know why it's so un-user friendly. As far as traffic, well, it's not a hub, but it is in the top 40 airports in the country. You'll see all U.S. majors except Alaska and ATA.
