Hey folks. I recently moved back to Chicago after a few years at grad school, and while I'm not, for the time-being interested in actually photographing planes, I am interested in some good spotting spots around ORD
. I took a quick drive around the area, down mannheim by 27L, and around the west side of the field on elmhurst, and while there are plenty of areas along the road to spot nice approaches and departures along the runway centerline, there's either nowhere to park (inconspicuously), or the terrain is so much lower than the runway, that once a plane passes over head, it quickly disappears long before it touches down. Any suggestions?
