This blog is geared toward helping fellow enthusiasts identify spotting areas at airports. I've included shots I've taken from those spots to give you an idea of what kind of photos can be expected from each vantage point.

Billings, MT - KBIL

This unique regional airport sits atop a mesa 600 feet above the city.  There is one main air carrier runway which runs east/west (10L/28R) that provides for some great light in the winter. (Just bring a parka) The public viewing area is just off Airport Rd near the approach end of 28R and is clearly marked. Shots can be had from 10L departures or 28R arrivals.
