When I was little, my dad would take my brother and I to Toronto Pearson to watch planes land. The excitement of the plane coming towards you is a rush that never gets old. It is something I still absolutely love today.
One of my favourite spots to catch jets landing is the parking lot behind the Petro Canada Gas Station on Airport Road. It is the perfect spot when this runway is in use. Download a flight tracking app to your mobile to determine where planes are landing. Trust me when you arrive, you will find many other fellow plane nerds trying to capture the perfect shot.
Today I met a family who brought their four year old son for the first time and the smile on his face said it all. If you are looking for a fun family activity, I highly recommend a wee bit of plane spotting. A great way to create a lifetime love of flight.
