Spotting In Van Nuys

Sat Jan 19, 2008 3:07 pm

Hi.
I need a small help.
I am trying to find a map or some information about spotting places in Van Nuys (VNY). The best would be if I could take photos with the sun on my back, but if not possible, then a place from where I could just write down some tail numbers would be fine.
Thanks in advance for any help.

There's a good place, I've forgotten what its called, with benches, a shelter, and even a speaker that broadcasts the ATC transmissions from the airport. The first time I went there I forgot my scanner but was pleasantly surprised.

Great for photos in the morning, just need to stand on a bench to get over the fence, and great for taking N-numbers all day.

And directly across the runways at the intersection of Arminta and Havenhurst is great for afternoon photos.
