People tend to check in during these times:
Hang out on top of your car to get the best view of the planes landing/taking-off
This lot IS the good tip.
See planes landing and taking off.

Best place to wait if you arrive too early.
Beats driving around in circles. Nice view of runway.
Great place to hang out and watch the planes land.
