Plane spot at your own risk!



The best and safest place to view the airplanes at the Rockford Airport is along Runway 25. That is on the East end of the airport on Falcon rd.  They have a parking area that is just north of the Rockford Airport tower.  From this location you are off the roadway and in a parking area. And it has a good view of the airport and an excellent spot to watch the planes take off and arrive on Runway 25.

This should be your spot to go to, if you go plane spotting.



Runway 7

Runway 7 is the most popular arrival runway.  Many aircraft use runway 7.  This is located along the south west side of the airport.  There is only really one spot here that is safe to park at.  So be very careful if you spot from this location. You can watch the planes come in on the ILS arrivals. Once the planes go over your head, you quickly lose sight of them. There is a large hill on the airport property which is a part of the runway. You will get an awesome view of them arriving, but you cannot see them land.


Runway 1


This is another spot to view from. It is on the southside of the airport. The one thing here is the lack of parking to plane spot from. With the recent changes at the airport and expansions, the old spots to park at are now gone.  But there are a few spots to park at. This is an excellent spot to watch the Runway 1 arrivals and takeoffs from.  It does have its limitations though. You are able to see the AAR and Runway 1. Everything else you cannot see.

Runway 19

Runway 19 is the worst place to spot from.  It is on the north end of the airport. They reconstructed the area and now there is a round-a-bout where you used to be able to spot from. I don’t know of any good spots for runway 19.  If you happen to know of some, let me know!
