Plane Spotting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport

The Airport Greenbelt Park on the south side of the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport was opened in 1991. At that time visitors could watch small commercial and private planes like Cessnas and Falcons take off and land on the south runway. That runway was not long enough for larger planes made by Boeing, Airbus and Embraer.

In September 2014 the expansion of the south runway was completed as part of the airport expansion and renovation project. Plane spotters and photographers can now get close-up views of Airbus A319/A320/A321, Boeing 737s and Embraer 175/190.

Here is an American Eagle airliner (Embraer 175) before and during takeoff on the south runway.
