I created the original version of my planespotting guide 17 years ago and have gotten a lot of feedback from enthusiasts around the world.  This new version has an updated look and is filled with great information and resources to help you learn how to identify the different types of commercial aircraft at your local airport.

Most airports in the U.S. today don’t have free access indoor observation decks, but many have outdoor areas set aside for planespotters.  Here you’ll find details on some of the best areas for watching and photographing at airports I’ve visited complete with maps, directions, and examples of photos.  Can’t make it out to the airport?  I’ve got links to sites where you can listen to air traffic control and track flights live on the web.
