Other Spotting Locations
Very easy to find and not that far from the official pavillion. Both are in sight of each other. If you see the IBIS airport hotel, then you're heading the right way! Shots of both lining up and landing aircraft, onto 19L, can be had.
From the airport cafeteria most activities can be observed. Some photos can also be obtained from here. The cafeteria seems to tolerate spotters as long as they buy something and prices are reasonable. Good place in the winter when it's freezing outside.
