Terminal 4 Spotting at Phoenix

By: Category: PHXSpottingUncategorized

  • This is a huge garage; you can go to any level to get uncluttered shots from either side north/south/east/west. It is a good location to get close-up shots of aircraft taxiing to the gates you can also get shots of aircraft lining up on 25R or landing on 25L. You can also get aircraft touching down on 26 with the Papago Mountains in the backdrop which is a signature shot from Phoenix.

Spotting Location of the week

By: Category: PHXSpottingUncategorized

  This week we have decided to select Terminal 2 as our Spotting location of the week. Description : The T2 parking garage is only 2 levels tall and there is no view to the south side (which is where the gates are located) so the only spotting you can do here is on the north side overlooking the landing zone of rwy08. This is where most aircraft will turn off when they land on rwy26. Shots can be taken all year long from this location (won’t be backlit). UPDATE: Be advised that you are no longer able to park on the top level of T2. They have dedicated parking for Airport/Airline employees. You are still able to park on the lower level. And walk up the flight of stairs, and the cost of parking is $4.00 per hour. For a complete list of Spotting areas around PHX visit Read More

PHX Spotters day 2011 was a complete success. A couple weeks ago, Josh Akbar who is our Program Coordinator emailed me his thoughts about  having our first Phx Spotters Day event sometime during Memorial Weekend. So we came up with a couple of  ideas with our members and  decided to have it on Sunday, May 29th 2011.  Our first visit was to Sky Harbor International Airport (KPHX). We all decided to meet at the NW corner of T4. In attendance was Jason Bong, Josh Akbar, Felipe Garcia, Kyle Boyd, Ken Cheung, who flew in from Sacramento, CA, and Joe Kates, and member Ron. So after doing some spotting we moved to the SE corner to get some nice lighted arrival and departure shots. After about a hour of we decided to head over to Terminal 3 to catch the Hawaiian Airlines 767-300 (N590HA)...Read More
