De Plane! De Plane!
Viewing Area at Bradley Int’l Airport
East Granby, CT
[2015 Update: this lot is closed off by a wall of Jersey barriers. Oh well.]
I know, this is silly, but I once got an email asking me if I knew if there was a place to “plane spot” in Connecticut. I guess this is what they mean; a place where people with less of a life than I have sit around and watch planes land. (I didn’t see any take-off towards us while I was there.)
I drove up there with Damian once and it actually was pretty cool – for about half an hour or, about 3 planes. Damian liked it too, but the infrequency of landings was a bit frustrating for him. Other people, though, appeared to really enjoy sitting there for hours on end and do whatever it is they do when planes fly by low and close.
