Richmond, BC is home to the Vancouver International Airport and has a ton of non-stop air traffic all the time. This obviously attracts a lot of people to just come out and enjoy the beehive of activity on constant display. Tonight I’ve traveled to the park just off of Russ Baker Way, on Sea Island, to enjoy the planes, all draped by a beautiful sunset.
The park I visited is situated just before the main runway, so the planes come directly overhead as they make their landing approach. Not only is it just awesome to watch and hear, but the volume of planes coming in and taking off rarely leaves a dull moment.
There are always lots of people out as well: families, couples, aviation enthusiasts, and photographers all admiring the action in a beautiful park-like setting.
Richmond has several good spots to view the runways. The Russ Baker Way station is my favourite and makes a great evening to catch some beautiful sunsets and check out the airport. We are the airport city after all!!! Get out there and see for yourself!
