The website is actually used as a reference for those who are looking for a spotting place. This Topic is one of the examples. However today, The website is still unaccessible (HTTP 500 Error) 😊

I have only gone spotting in EDDH. The public spotting terrace is very good, considering it is free of charge.

I took these pictures on the terrace:

Spotting at KTPA can be good if you are on the top level of the short term parking garage. The garage is in the center of the airport so you have views of all the terminals.

I realize the map is a little out of date. Half those airlines aren’t there any more and twice as many are there now, but I make a point.

I went spotting at Spokane International Airport (Washington State). They have a big parking garage that over looks the tarmac. We drove to the top for a great view!

Anywhere near Corfu Airport(LGKR). The scenery around the airport is beautiful, and you can take some great pics. I am going again there this week

Not to be biased or anything, but I think all of my photos are great! I’ve spotted at multiple airports, with FAOR being my main one. :)

There is a wonderful plane spotting area at KMSP Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport. You can get great pictures of planes using 12R/30L and planes taxiing to runway 17/35.

The best plane spotting location me is at In & Out Burger at LAX. The heavy arrivals at 24R & 24L are a wonder to watch. You can see a load of SouthWest’s 737 in the background!
