Best Airport To Spot At?

Sun Dec 31, 2006 3:52 am

I would have to say that I love ATL, as it is always busy, but there really isnt that much diversity. JFK has the diversity in Atlantic/western operators, and is busy, but LAX has much more Asian carriers, and is also very busy.

Whcih are you favorites?

How long do I have to climb, up on the side of this mountain of mine?

My favourites are FRA and AMS, not only for the diversity of traffic, but the ease of spotting there. DUS is also up there, not so much for the diversity, but for the simple fact of it's two incredible observation decks.

I have to go with ANC especially with the spotting sites along runway 14/32. Probably the only place in the world where you could find a DC-6 and 747-400 at the same time.
