Hey IFC. @lucaviness here with a question. My closest airport is KSFO but I have no good ideas for places to spot. If anyone else has ever spotted there, let me know your recommendations. Thanks and see you in the skies!
Bayfront park and the Waterfront are the two best spotting locations I can think of currently. 01 approach is a lot more difficult to access, so you can get some quality shots from either of the two above locations 😁
Thanks so much for those! I’ll definitely try them out!
Good to know! I have a spare afternoon that I can go spotting there on my way to Vegas!
Normally there is no landings on the 01’s. It’d have to be a special occasion
Spotting at KSFO and Vegas 🤔🤔
Someone is going to have a nice holiday!
There’s a hill right behind 1L and 1R and you can peek over and see the planes taking off if the 1s are open
And Copenhagen and Toronto. I’m taking the long way round to FlightSimExpo lol
I’d tell you, but you need security clearance lol
There is a park by the 28’s, linked below.
Check FR24 for the best time to go spotting.
Oh yeah, you’re the guy who is a gate manager or something like that.
Check this! :D
IIRC, there’s a observation deck under construction at T2.
The park looks cool and right by the bigies! Thanks.
lol nonono im just a ramp agent haha. there is a few places where you can go though.
Yeah, thought so. cool
Oh wow you live in walnut creek? I’m san Rafael.
I stayed at a hotel right next to the airport. I remember shooting time lapses of planes coming in. Let me see if I can find what is was.
EDT: It’s The Westin. You might be able to spot I a parking lot nearby.
Great! Thanks for the advise.
You have to have a room in the hotel to park in the parking lot, although there are other places you can park at. There is a path in which you can spot from, in front of the parking lot.
