Photography @ Fort Lauderdale (FXE)

Fri Feb 12, 2016 6:46 pm

Ft Lauderdale Executive Airport

Of all my numerous trips to S Florida, I've never visited here. I'll be down in the area next week and would like to try some photography.

This pic says there is an observation area. Where is it located?

Any help with other spots is also greatly appreciated.

It's just South-West of the end of the 08 runway on NW 56th St. It's clearly visible on Google Earth.

Quoting 727LOVER (Thread starter):

As scbriml said, NW 56th St, southwest corner of the airport. Google Maps says 5674 NW 56th St.

The observation area is a great location, but FXE isn't particularly busy. There are, however, plenty of classic/rare planes parked in various states of disrepair around the airport. You'll be able to see (and photograph if you're lucky) some interesting planes just by driving around the fence, especially on the south side of the airport.
I reject your reality and substitute my own...
