Sea-Tac International...coming from the east, especially from Denver, the views of Mt. Rainier and the smaller mountains are unmatched.

Miami is stunning to approach by air from the East or Southeast. Just hope you are on the correct side of the plane to see it.

If you were headed west or northwest, you would.

LaGuardia is awesome coming in from the west on a clear day.

The takeoff at night was pretty phenomenal as well.

I used to love landing at DC National (although I haven't done it since 2001 and I'm not sure if they've changed the flight patterns since then). Seeing all of the monuments and sights across the river in DC as you're landing is amazing.

On the usual approach to MDT you can look down the dead cooling tower of Three Mile Island.
