    Great place to check out the planes landing or to wait until you need to pick someone up.

    head west on sunset from eastern and on the right you will see the runway observation area. Park your car and watch the airplanes land.

    It was very relaxing just looking on the planes landing and taking off, once in a while .

    A great place to watch couples get their freak on. If the car Windows are steamed up and the car is rockin' you know what is going on.

    Tuning you radio to 101.1 as posted at the lot is worthless. Android users download LiveATC app... it works great for listening to the tower and surrounding aircrafts.

    If you want to get great pictures of planes don't use a camera phone or point & shoot. Your pictures will suck if you shoot through the fence.

    Don't take pictures with your cheap point & shoot cameras through the fence. Otherwise a cool place to get a look at planes
