Where to see parked UA aircraft at ORD?

Fri May 01, 2020 1:40 am

According to the United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread thread, there are almost 40 United aircraft parked at ORD, with at least a dozen 777s.

Can anyone advise, is there anyplace to see all these aircraft from the roads around O'Hare? It sounds like it could be an incredible site, but wasn't sure what the best vantage point would be.

They’re scattered about, but hard to miss. Mostly near the hangar complex

you can see them clearly if you take the road behind the Alliant Credit union off Tully Road.

Back in February after the China travel-ban, I saw 4-5 777’s sitting at the north hangar amongst a bunch of other smaller planes. Easy to see from I-90E
