Spotting At SFO

Sat Sep 17, 2011 7:58 pm

Are there any good areas around the airport for some good ol' plane watching? Have a trip coming up and was just curious.

Thanks!

Along the water at the approach end of 28L/R is excellent. The airport Marriott is a good reference spot.

Awesome. Thanks! I'm actually taking a FDT trip to either there or LAX for the night, just haven't decided which one I want to do...

The employee parking garage is my favorite spot. It can be reached by walking from the Westfield Rd AirTrain station. I've been stopped by cops here once before, so beware.
