Spotting At YOW, Cyow

Sat Jan 28, 2006 5:53 am

Hey guys,
I have a LOT of free time over the next couple weeks and was thinking of doing some spotting at my local airport YOW, CYOW. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips. I have never been spotting here ever! I realize the selection of birds will be quite bland being Ottawa but it's something I'd like to do.

Any info would be great.

Thanks for the great link Pete.  Smile

One thing though, last time I went to YOW the shipping container at location 1 had been removed - which is unfortunate, because it was an awesome spot IMO.
You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.
