Spotting At ORF

Mon Aug 09, 2004 4:32 am

I was thinking about taking a trip down in the next few weeks, and looked at the ORF website (http://www.norfolkairport.com) and came across this in the Q&A section:

Q: Is there any place to go and watch the planes land?
A: There is a public observation area located at the bend on Robin Hood road adjacent to the Air Cargo Terminal and employee satellite parking lot.

Can anyone confirm this, so I don't waste my time?

WOW! I didn't know that!! I was just there last year. Can you still spot at the botanical gardens next door?

The Robin Hood road spotting area was recently rebuild and is open now. I'm not sure about the Botanical Gardens spot still being open. I live and have commuted in and out of ORF since '79. The Botanical Garden spot was on a hill and always seemed to have spotters.

Thanks for the info. I was looking thru the database, and it seems there is not much from ORF. Looks like its time for me to add some!
