MIA Location: LH A380

Sat Jun 04, 2011 6:55 am

So with LU flying in the A380 on Friday I was wondering if anyone knows of where the best spot to see it would be. I am guessing some place around runway 9 and closer to the East towards concourse J since that is where it will park and get the water cannon salute. I am sure there will be some others there. Any spot in particular anyone can think of?
Would the top of any of the parking garages or the Hotel give a decent veiw?

Who is planning on being there?

Thanks for the help

I'm going to be there mainly for the landing. My guess is most will use the El Dorado location as there will be ESE winds that day according to the forecast.

Well the eastern wind is the norm but either way I would imagine runway 9/27 is going to be where the A380 lands and takeoffs. That seems like a decent spot. Maybe the 94th Aero parking lot?

Yeah 9/27 is the only one it will use from what I understand, which is great. 94th Aero should be ideal for takeoff shots.
