"Founder's Plaza" at DFW is great. Went there last year, good action.

Lighten up while you still can, don't even try to understand, just find a place to make your stand and take it easy

The top levels of the parking garage at KDAL in early morning sun (8 am to 11 am) is a great location. Founder's Plaza is a nice place, but their are better options at DFW if you don't mind talking a few minutes with DFW police, they usually come and ask what you're doing just to make sure you're a legit photographer and not someone that is up to no good.

Here is a great guide to spotting at KDFW. http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en...306.00045148dd40019930e38&t=h&z=13

I will probably be out there all day Friday...you'll probably see me at Founder's for a few hours.

Also there is a road near a lake that is awesome for afternoon arrivials. Easy to find.

Ahh yes Bachman lake, there is a park with picnic benches and a walking path that you can follow to get right under either runway. http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&sa...i=geocode_result&ct=title&resnum=1
