Wonderful day spotting @ Toronto Pearson (CYYZ) on Runway 23

If my local airport was that close to a major road like in Toronto, I’ll be there everyday for the rest of my life.

Theres another road thats super close by and you can take even better shots. But security guards that area hardcore. You need to walk and bike to get there if you want to take pictures, but I need a car to get there and theres nowhere to park. Butthe current road I go to will suffice lol

Haha, I flew in on that very same Aer Lingus 757-200 to Toronto Pearson yesterday! I spent today spotting at Toronto City Billy Bishop Airport.

Nothing that a “May I take some photos for my spotting website?” won´t do. At least you can try.

A good way to spend a nice afternoon. It was nice here this afternoon where I live too. Sadly my local airport has no good spotting sites. If it did, then I would be there all day.

I don’t think they care about the photos. Its just cars stopping on the side of the road for people to take photos. And theres nothing around that area too because it used to be the entrance to Terminal 2 (which is closed down now). So its just a lonely desolate road, and I guess they don’t want people clogging up the road to spot planes.

@Sturmovik and yes, we don’t have a Terminal 2. We just have Terminal 1 and 3. Very weird…

If I’m Not wrong, Toronto’s Terminal 2 was demolished Due to Ageing structure

It was! I’m just not sure why they didn’t rename it.
