A Picnic Next to the Runway?
Looking for a unique way to spend the afternoon? Try Founders' Plaza, the small park that overlooks the north end of the DFW airport runways, where planes land close by. Eat at any of the covered patio tables and listen to the air traffic control that plays on a speaker overhead. The airport is one of the largest in the world—it covers more ground than Manhattan—so only a few minutes pass between landings. Check out the regulars who bring their own radios and cameras to catch the largest planes, and watch as children run after the landings.
