There is only one official location along Alert Rd.  There is a small parking lot for about 8 vehicles just past the service entrance to the golf club and secondary radome.  This spot offers good daytime views of runway 07/25 operations, direct line of sight to the MTO hanger, Shell and Esso FBO's, Fedex and First Air bases.  100 to 400mm lenses work well from this location.

Depending on the time of the year, Leitrim Rd offers great views of aircraft landing on Rwy 32 or departing off Rwy 14. Aircraft pass overhead at just over 150 feet above the groundWhen there is no snow on the ground, there is a small sandy parking lot on the south side right under the approach lighting.  There is also a sandy path on the north side of the road that follows the fence.  Try not to park along the shoulder of the road as cars and trucks speed by at over 70km/h and the police might ask you to move as a safety precaution.  good lenses here are 70-200mm, 75-300mm, 100-400mm.

Ottawa receives many foreign dignitaries, state officials and military personnel.  The Canada Reception Centre also known as Hanger 11 is where foreign visiting aircraft first arrive to meet Canadian officials.  This hanger and aprons are used for parking various aircrafts when stored, special military charters, cargo charters, etc.  When there are no special visitors, there is no problem with security, but the road to the CRC is usually closed when foreign heads of states visit.
