Best Approaches?

Tue Nov 16, 2004 10:13 pm

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but it's been a while so here we go.

What, in your opinion runways on what airport gives you the best views before touch down? I was wondering about New Yorks 12 runways on the three major airports but any contribute with pictures are welcome.

The best one I've had was on a downwind to Frankfurt runway 07 L. I saw the whole city of Frankfurt on my left side then the whole airport in all it's glory before a nice left turn and touch down. Best landing I've ever had.

How about you guys?

Mischa.

I would suggest 3 anyways;

Innsbruck, Austria - feels as though you are landing right in the heart of the mountains on a clear day! Fabulous little place!

Seattle-Tacoma - The view coming from the Southeast as you pass the Cascade Volcanoes and finally the might of Mount Rainier is truly amazing before the blue Puget Sound pops into view.

LHR landing from the east can give an amazing view of all the landmarks in the city centre, Millenium Dome thru Westminster.

Sorry I cant give exact runway numbers and stuff like others might....

Next Flight: DUB-BOS (EI), BOS-DEN-PDX (SWA), SEA-BOS (AS)

MDW - 22L, especially coming in from STL late at night. With the reduced traffic, you basically do a tight downwind approach. The views are amazing.

Yeah that 22L approach at MDW is awesome. Taking off from 4R or 4L is also sweet, you're basically heading right for the sears tower. I think all the ORD, PWK and MDW approaches are sweet. at ORD at times you get to go over 294 and see all the traffic, or fly right over all the train yards (thats at MDW or ORD), and PWK offers fantastic views of downtown chicago....

nothing beats the visual approach to rwy 18 at meigs though  Sad

Caracas, Maiquetia at night: be sure to be seated on the righthand side. After you make the turn to line up with the runway you're still high enough to look over Avila mountain and see the millions and millions of blinking lights from the city.
During the day it's better to sit on the left side, especially coming from Europe, you can see the beautiful coastline until the aircraft turns.
I wish that all skies were orange and blue!!

Southwest gate then right base into 16R at DEN (preferably at night). You come in over the mountains, fly literally right over Downtown not more than 5,000 AGL, then curve around to land. The view at night is simply amazing.

SAN - the bumps you feel on approach aren't from turbulence, they're from scraping the rooftops from downtown, like a stone being skipped across a pond. Try it in a Saab SF340 (American Eagle) or an EMB-120 Brasilia (United Express) when they dive like a bird of prey. Amazing!!

I couldn't find any really dramatic photos of the approach, but from a passenger's perspective, either side of the plane gives you some incredible views of the city. My favorite is the right side, overlooking Balboa Park.

RE: Best Approaches?

First a quick question, New Yorks 12 runways at the three major airports...aren't there only 9, 4 af JFK, 3 at EWR, and 2 at LGA?

Anyway, my favorite approaches:

1. Kai Tak - Nothing will ever beat the old approach into Kai Tak
2. San Diego - Approach into runway 27. You come down right through the city. You have downtown on your left, Balboa Park with all its attractions on your right, and then again on your left, you have the harbor and usually an aircraft carrier or two.
3. San Francisco 28L or 28R approach. I love coming out across the hills over San Jose and then slowly following the bay up to SFO, passing the Dumbarten and San Mateo Bridges.
4. National - The river approach is also hard to beat. I should probably finally do it on the right side, but I love the view on the left: Georgetown, National Cathedral, the Mall, monuments, the Capital...
5. Honolulu - Approach to 8L or 8R. I really enjoy coming in from the mainland and passing by Molokai and then getting to see Maui in the distance before Oahu with Diamond Head and Waikiki comes into view on the right. Particularly, I enjoy the loop around for approach that gives you the great views of Pearl Harbor. - Woohoo, I get to see this again in two days!
6. Approaching the LAX basin at night. I have only done this a couple of times, but one time into Ontario, I remember coming through a pass in the mountains and just seeing all of that city lit up is impressive.

I always love the approach to Heathrow RWY 27 R/L. You get to see all the major sites in London-- Big Ben, Tower Bridge, London Eye, Buckingham... etc

I also love the approach into DCA- rwy 18. You can see all of washington DC, The Whitehouse, Capitol, Supreme Court.... etc etc

ZRH: you get to see gorgeous mountains & scenery. Plus when you land you see all those Swiss tails  Smile

    I like the 03 and 35 approaches over LIS as you fly over the river and the centre of the city (and of course the bridge).

    One time I was on a ORD-EWR flight on AA that got delayed due to rain. So the landing at EWR was around 2 a.m. I landed North to South with a full view of NYC to my left. This was back in 96 so everything was intact and the whole city was lit up. Truly incredible.
    Having said that, I hope everyone can experience the approach into CUZ. It's breathtaking, figuratively speaking. Then, once you get off the airplane, it literally is "breathtaking" at such altitude.

    Coming into MDW over the HUGE railyards of Chicago is pretty impressive. Last time I had a great view of the City as we took off to the south and then headed north to MSP. Funny, the view from my home airport in BOS always seems better on take-off than on approach, although I am always glad to be back in BOS again.

    MCO 35 (now 35L) at night is cool. When sitting on the left side, you can't see anything and think you're just gonna slam the ground.

    EWR 22L, following the NJ Turnpike viewing NYC.


    And of course, nothing will ever beat the Checkerboard Approach into Kai Tak. My good friend used to live in Hong Kong, said the approach gave him goosebumps all the time.

    EIS - (Beef Island, Tortola, BVI) Wow
    SFO - Had a superb view right over the city with the Bay Area laid out before me

    I agree with the Midway approach but also think the Midway/O'Hare approach coming in from over the lake is really neat...especially at night. And of course here in STL the approach over downtown at night with the arch lit up at night is really neat, too. Unfortunately the remaining 6 miles is pretty typical and blah after that shot.

    Thanks for the great pictures and the info about the approaches! I love watching as I land in any city I fly to. Although I agree with one of the above posters, the approach to Las Vegas at night is one of the better ones. Nothing like seeing the city and the strip all lit up!

    What I was referring to was that for example runway 4L/22R at EWR is two separate runways. But I actually forgot runways 29/11 at EWR so that makes the total runways in the NYC area 18!!! Four in LGA, eight in JFK and six in EWR.

    Maybe I'm partial, but the approach from the east into PDX, with the summit of Mt Hood a stone's throw away, always reminds me I'm home.

    I love the approach in to CWL. Cant beat sweeping in over the Bristol Channel - sometimes you feel as if you will land in the see. If you sit on the right hand side of the aircraft you have a cracking view of Cardiff and the Millenium Stadium.

    Nothing beats Kai Tak International Airport in Hong Kong. You just can't get any better than the old checkerboard approach  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

    Why on Earth did they close Kai Tak down?

    ANC . . . especially on a clear day when you can see Mt. McKinley 280 miles north . . .

    DCA . . . North River approach. Left, right, left, right . . . awesome.
