New public viewing area opens at Perth Airport

written by australianaviation.com.au | December 19, 2011

Perth Airport has opened a purpose-built viewing platform for arrivals and departures.

“The viewing platform has a magnificent view of the main runway, and is as close as the public could ever hope to get to watch an arrival or departure,” Perth Airport CEO Brad Geatches said.

The shelter is reflective of the shape of the body section of a Boeing 747, and a 108 foot section of paving has been laid in reference to the length of the Wright brother’s first airborne flight, which took place 108 years ago on Saturday.

The platform is 200 square metres in size, has capacity for 100 people and is wheelchair accessible.
