It looks like from the Northside, or maybe the parking garage, thru a car window. None of the hotel around the airport have that angle back to the cargo area.
The short answer to your question is: yes. There is a lot of great places, and access is pretty good, and the Port police are not too bad as most of these spots are public areas off of main roads. Traffic though is pretty boring. The majority is narrow-body aircraft. Delta has a couple of 767s that go out, but other than that it is 737s, 757s, A320s, Dash-8s, MD-80s that kind of stuff. Freight is a little better as FedEx brings both DC-10s and A310s, sometimes MD-11s, UPS has 767s and A300s, occasionally the MD-11 or a DC-8. Air China has started ops with 747-200Fs, but their schedule is pretty prone to delays. Cargolux has 747-400Fs on WED and SAT nights and Korean has TUE, THU and SAT early departures (that pic above was because we had a 7 hour delay last week). It's kind of fun if you've never been out, but it gets a little repetitive after awhile.
I know most of the area around the airport pretty good so if you want some goods spots, email me and I'll let you know.
is that a light at the end of the tunnel or just a train?
