Thomas A. Dixon Jr. Aircraft Observation Area

The Thomas A. Dixon Jr. Aircraft Observation Area offers plane-lovers an up close and personal view of planes landing at BWI airport.

Right across the road from the northwest-southeast runway, planes roar in close overhead. While plane watching, you can go for a walk along the BWI trail or play on the playground.

"The playground here is ok for younger children say ages 2-4. However there is a great trail for walking while baby is in stroller and biking for older child."

"If your child is a plane lover, this is a great stop. When we need to pick up or drop off someone at BWI, we leave a little extra time to swing by. Just park the car and watch a few planes up close and personal."
