Taxiway WC spot added.
==Other Spotting Locations==
Taxiway WC at Runway 05R/23L
This location is actually a taxiway (Taxiway Whiskey Charlie) that connects the international airport with an nearby military base. This taxiway appears to be abandoned or not often used. Locals and spotters alike use this location to watch and spot aircraft. Guard shack on the airport side is staffed, however there are no hassles with the authorities. A short (~6 feet) barbed wire barrier separates the public area and the airport property. Photography can be done through the gaps in between the wires (difficult but not impossible), however it is better to use a step ladder or sit on the top of your vehicle.

Viewing is of all Runway 05R/23L action. Essentially you will everything that uses the B and D gates, which means mostly all EVA Air traffic and not so much China Airlines traffic. You are very close to the runway here, only 100 mm is needed for an A330 or B747 side view, 160 mm is needed for an A320 side view.
