Pics look great. I think the Civic X looks best in these 3/4 rear shots.

Also a airplane geek, I just love going to airports to just watch planes land and takeoff, missed a air Canada 787 landing by half an hour. The A330 made up for that.

Actually, many airports still have "spectator" areas. Most likely out of luck at the "big 5" cities, but at a smaller city, like Columbus for example, there are viewing areas still.

And almost all of the general aviation airports have some sort of viewing area. All the better to lure people into buying flying lessons. :thumbsup:

KSLC is definitely not one of those airports with a viewing area. :rolleyes1: So sad.

I haven't seen one there, it's true. However, Provo used to have one a few years ago. I haven't been there since they built the new terminal, so it may have vanished. There used to be a large glider operation at Provo, they are usually very happy to show off their toys. :thumbsup:

Haha!! Funny you mention PVU, I worked there for 3 years! With the addition of Allegiant flights, security is a bit more strict now unfortunately.

Probably won't believe this but, back in the late 70's a few of us would go to O'HARE and jump the 10 ft. fence, walk about 1/2 a mile to the runways and watch the planes take off and land. It was so dark and being dressed in black, we never got caught. We actually were able to lay down in the grass at the beginning of a runway and watch the plane overhead as it landed. It seemed as if was only 100 ft. above us.
