thank you XJRamper for mentioning the HNL Reef Runway! One of the best, if not the best spotting place at HNL is just feet from that runway. NOTHING like having a 744 taxi right in front of you!

My two favorites are Pullman/Moscow (PUW) and Pendleton (PDT). Head east from Pullman past the Washington State University campus. Turn off the highway and down throught the low, rolling hills covered in wheat. About three miles off the highway, there is the runway in a shallow valley about half way between Pullman and Moscow just inside the Washington state line.

Pendleton is where I grew up, so it will always be, to me, my favorite. Flat farmland to the west and north and mountains about 30 miles to the east and south. Nothing special. During fire season, sometimes there are charters flying into PDT. During the winter, the fog is bad so flights divert to Pasco (PSC).

GO CANUCKS!!

You are all wrong... the moast beautifull airport in the universe is FARO! (LPFR)

In south portugal, with the absolutely fabulous Ria Formosa, the white sand beaches and the magnific views of nice yachts with their white sails... make the aproach to Faro a splendurous view. Check for yourself!
