City of Charlotte Airport Overlook

Probably the best all-around location for spotters. Located on the west side of the airport, near the threshold of 18R. Large parking lot, with benches. Good up close views, and no hassles from police. Will sometimes be closed during elevated terror threat levels. Scheduled to be closed in 2006 as airport expands to the west.

Location

Old Dowd Road. Open from dawn until 10pm.


Carolinas Aviation Museum

For a nominal $5 entry fee, you can use the photo stand near the threshold of 18L. Westward facing, this is an excelent location in the morning when the sun is at your back.

Location

North side of airport... Just follow the signs.
