Go to Centennial (KAPA) if you’re nearby. I was there today and they were landing on the 17’s. You can get get great shots of aircraft arriving especially those Corporate jets.
RWY 17L & 17R Operations:
The areas in the red boxes are great places to spot from for the operations using the 17’s. I was at the purple pin earlier today when I took the photo you see above. Plenty of parking lots and the tenants generally don’t mind. I’ve seen spotters here in the past, and as I noted I was there but without the intention of spotting. I had other business today in that area.
RWY 35L & 35R Operations:
The 35’s can be a bit tricker to spot from as the Meridian Golf Club takes up a lot of area. Just south of Lincoln Ave. there are some fast food areas, and a carwash called “Waterworks” which lies right under 35R. There is a medical plaza in that same area with plenty of parking as well. Might be worth checking out.
As I was looking at the surrounding area, it looks like Liberty Blvd will get you right up on 35R. I’m not sure if there is public access in that area but I know for a fact that Peoria St. is all public access. You might find some more office buildings in the area with suitable parking. But other than that, everything under the approach path for the 35’s are condos, houses, or residential areas. So just be considerate where you park. 🙂
Other than that, Centennial is a great airport. Lots of areas to spot from in all sorts of different angles. Theres a restaurant that I highly recommend called “The Perfect Landing”. You’ll be sure to enjoy a great meal with even better sights than your normal dine in restaurant.
Have fun and be safe out there!
