Hi, I will be spotting at DFW over thanksgiving break and was looking for a spotting area on the east side of the two runway sets and down by the 35’s end. any help?
A simple search on the google will do the trick
I’d recommend Founders Plaza.
@BadPlane what day are you as I’m headed up towards DFW Wednesday
I will be flying through DFW on Sunday! When will you be there, maybe you can spot me
There’s a parking lot on Construction Road. It’s only good for mornings as it’s backlit in the afternoon/evening.
Just past the two bridges, there’s a right turn. Take that turn, and go up in front of the cemetery. This location is only good in the afternoon for southbound departures only.
That’s really all of the known spots for the west side.
Actually, I’ve got a spot, but I’m not sure airport ops will let you stay there. I’ll DM you it.
If you’re at Founder’s Plaza, I would suggest walking through the grass up by the fence here:
The aircraft on final are pretty close and you can get a shot like this:
Wednesday through Friday @Aviation360
Ok, i really want lighting behind we for the morning heavies like the JAL 789. I was going to use express parking north for the morning but the winds didn’t cooperate.
But I’ll be in granbury I’m sure I could convince my step-grandfather’s Man Child side I’m sure he’d love to get that close to the Planes
I thought of that but the 35’s will be in use not the 16’s. We can continue in a DM.
There’s no 16s at DFW. I’ll draw a diagram of runway usage.
Red is landings.
Green is takeoffs.
Red/Green arrows indicate certain directional usage.
West Side Runways
East Side Runways
Sorry, I ment the 17’s
forgot to save the edit my bad give me a sec
Ok fixed it
@Chris_S This spotting guide can also apply to you :)
