[October 24, 2018: Welcome to Airport Spotting Guide PART 2! If you didn’t know about Part 1, here’s the link for it: PART 1 // A Community-Made Airport Spotting Guide // A Guide for an Airport Near You
Part 1 reached the character limit. But now we have Part 2!
Please post any information you’re sharing with us in this topic and NOT in Part 1.
Also, please do not post a report if you already posted the exact same thing in Part 1. (If you’d like to transfer your Part 1 post into Part 2, please PM me. Thanks!)
And if you don’t see your airport on the list here in Part 2, feel free to check Part 1 to see if the airport you’re looking for can be found there. Thanks!
Here’s the topic description, copied straight from Part 1. Enjoy!]
"Notes" from Part 1:
[Notes from @racerclc on September 26, 2018:]
If you have questions about spotting at a particular airport, you’re welcome to post it here! Someone might be able to give you a good answer.
Follow @Dylan_M 's example: Feel free to edit your airport post at any time, just let me know when you do so that I can update it in the main post. Thanks!
Original topic description for Part 1:
I’m sure IFC has many wonderful aviation spotters, so if anyone is looking into airport spotting, this topic might be able to give you some insight on where/how to spot at an airport near you.
This topic is for the community to share recommendations for airport spotting.
When giving advice, please be specific about which airport you are describing and give its airport code (ICAO code is preferred). The airport you choose to write about can be in any country, but it should regularly accommodate non-GA / non-private airplanes. (Military airports are accepted.)
Suggestions for sharing: the best locations for spotting at an airport, the types of jets that appear frequently at an airport, the best time of day and/or best weather for that airport, which runways are used for take-offs and which runways are used for landings, etc.
Feel free to give information regardless of how well-known the info might already be. All I ask is that you do not repeat info that was already stated and that you know the information is true. Information that has been received from sources like the internet should not be shared. All information should come from personal experience.
And to separate personal info from internet info: If you post information that was looked up online and NOT information acquired from personal experience, please note that in your post. Thank you!
And please, no off-topic discussion. (for example: "Oh yeah, that airport has a nice restaurant next to it called…")
As info is shared, I will try my best to update the list of airports and their info below (which is in alphabetical order by ICAO code):
