Where Do You Spot At Ord?

Mon Apr 09, 2001 7:52 am

I am going to go to O'Hare soon and was wondering where good places to spot are.

Thanks!

okay then i wont be too much help!! Big grin i've mastered ORD *without* a car...

ANyway, find yourself an ORD runway diagram, i know there are spots at 27L, 22R&L, 4R... inside the terminal go to K.

I have a secret spot, but you wont be able to park there, so it remains a secret!

When you gonna be there? this saturday im gonna hopefully catch a cubs game... im also supposed to meet up w/ a lady friend but if that doesnt work out i'll be there spotting...

I really have no idea yet since I won't be driving the car! My dad will. I'm sure he'll be bored out of his mind.  Smile I hope this weekend though. I can't wait!!

Oh, one more thing.
Where can I get some good O'Hare diagrams? The ones I have now are very bad quality.

Thanks!

Timbo,

The parking lot of the Starlight Inn on Mannheim is about the best spot I have found at O'Hare. Unfortunately, this spot only offers approach shots to 27L. There is also a good spot on Higgins Rd., which is right along 22L. All the good spots for ground shots are heavily patroled by the airport police, you would be lucky to spend more than 15 minutes at any of those spots.

The terminals would be your best bet, assuming the glass is clean.
