Spotting at IAD? I need some help....

Mon Sep 16, 2019 5:08 pm

Hello everyone! I hope I have this in the right forum..
I am going to DC soon, and am planning on going spotting at IAD.. I can only go in the morning, though, and the wind forecasts look like they're going to be landing from the south, so probably using 1R as the main runway..
I was wondering if anyone has gone spotting in this circled area before? I was thinking of going to the Chick Fil A parking lot or something...
I'm going to the Steven F Hazy Center, and have a couple of hours to do something before the museum opens... I'm hoping to go spotting somewhere that is in walking distance (Within a mile or so) from the museum.
Any help/advice would be great, thank you!! :-)

Haven't been to that spot before, but you should check the Washington Baltimore Spotters Group page and their IAD spotting guide:

Drive 100 yards further and you'll be at the Sully Park. They have gazebo where you can sit down and enjoy morning photography.
