I love airports and plane watching. I grew up close to RDU and my parents would always take me to the end of the runway to watch planes come in and I also had a scanner to listen to the pilots and tower. Even to this day I love going to different airports and the excitement of knowing that with a passport, I can be anywhere in the world in a matter of hours.

Here was my view a couple weeks ago from the observation deck at NRT.

I like plane watching and like to find an area around the airport where i can watch the activity which these days isnt in the airport as all views have been blocked off,crowds,rules and regulations and outlandish parking fees are all major negatives to actually going anywhere near the actual airports main building..
Montreal has addressed the fact that some people really enjoy watching planes and have built a viewing park to cater to their needs.

Other spotting locations.They even list scanner frequencies..

I don't mind airports. If only the prices of things in airports were regular retail price it would be even better.
