  • Nice place to see the planes and spend about 15mins of your day. The planes take off and land then repeat. Not really much more to say. It's the airport overlook.

  • It's always a treat for my nephews when I bring them here. However it does get loud if your kids don't like loud noises. Still a beautiful place to watch planes take off and land.
  • Just a little flat spot with parking out and slightly above the airport runway. Interesting place for a visit but not a must see location.
  • An awesome spot to watch planes takeoff and land! You can get great photos of planes with the Charlotte skyline and soon-to-be-replaced control tower in the distance. Even better, bring food and have a picnic with the family!!
  • My #1 favorite free place in Charlotte. The only problem is that they should also have an Outlook on the west runway. I love to watch the planes up close. Nice place if any friends and family are leaving and also to just relax!
  • I wish it were just a little closer and had a better view of runway 36R. Still nice for photos.
