Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

I particularly enjoy a cache that brings me to an interesting location, and it surprised me how many people were not aware of this free Charlotte-area entertainment. The coordinates will take you to the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport Overlook, an observation area that offers terrific views of one of the main runways. Pack a lunch and bring a camera - great way to entertain the kids, too.

The overlook is open from 8:00 am - 10:30 pm.

To claim credit for this cache, submit a photo of yourself with the runway in the background - extra credit if you can also catch an aircraft landing or taking off.

I've always wanted to stop by here but for some reason I never have...until today!

Fun place to check out the planes.

I got bonus points on my first try!

Was running late the last few times near here, but was early today, so made the stop and view. It was cloudy and sprinkling lightly, but views of the area were good. Too many people were around for me to do the selfie thing, but I took a couple pictures of the view, and will upload soon.

Thanks, Mrs. HB31, for setting this up!

FTF, Thanks for bringing me here. I need to return with my camera and a long lens to really capture the scene. My photo is rather small here, but there is a plane in the lower left. WAY to small to see in this file is a bonus helicopter.
