RE: Why Do Pilots Do This When Talking To ATC?

It's sort of a learned habit, due to the limitations of the microphones used in aviation headsets. Most microphones are inactive (squelched) unless activated by the voice of the person speaking.

RE: Spotting Spots Inside ANC!

How long is your layover?

If you have 4+ hours, rent a car and take a drive around Lake Hood, and up to the hills on Point Woronzof Rd. The in-terminal viewing deck is good, but if you can get outside of the terminal, the spotting opportunities are spectacular.
