Share the best spotting location you ever been!

Firstly,let me share my experience:
I have been spotted in Shanghai Pudong , Shanghai Hongqiao,Xiamen Gaoqi, Guangzhou Baiyun , Shenzhen Baoan, Chengdu Shuangliu, Shenyang Taoxian, Sanya Phoenix , Hangzhou Xiaoshan, Urumqi Diwopu, Lanzhou Zhongchuan
And also some airports in Europe: Such as Vienna LOWW, Istanbul Ataturk LTBA, Prague Vaclav Havel LKPR
Furthermore a airport in Middle East: Dubai international OMDB
My favorite is LTBA, Istanbul Ataturk
The reason is the spotting location is in a café, you can have a cup of coffee and spotting with the same time! The most important is , the aircraft is super close to the planespotting location, I think you can phone to take very nice pictures there.
But very unfortunately , the LTBA is currently not busy, because Istanbul just opened a brand new airport in Istanbul. Lots of flights’s destinations changes to the Istanbul new airport.

What is the the new airport code?

LTFM the new airport replacing Ataturk


Generic answer: LAX, Imperial Hill

Slightly more educated answer: Miami, El Dorado

The end of the south perimeter road in HKG, Seeing HAECO and 07R&07L!

Well I’ve only ever been to like 2, one being a general aviation airport so I’d have to say Brussels (BRU/EBBR), nice diversity even if we don’t get any A380’s or many 747’s.

Yeah, correct answer

Even though I haven’t been to the spotting location in LAX, but I have seen lots of pictures in LAX, that location is incredible

Probably TWA at JFK… I don’t go too far from home.

Do US airports provide official view deck?

Some airports do, like I know Los Angeles has a few clubs with spotting terraces, but it’s pretty rare in the US.

Gravelly Point Park, right next to KDCA. It’s amazing, you have everything from an Air Canada CRJ-200 up to a Delta 757-200 flying just 200 feet above you.
