Foursquare Tips

  • You can listen to the tower & planes on 88.5 FM. Pretty neat.
  • Great place to take the babies to watch planes taking off and landing.
  • The best part is watching the Lear Jets take off. Wheels up. #CessnaCitationX
  • great place to do some thinking
  • Perfect place to sit and watch planes, especially if you need to pick someone up.
  • Get here EARLY in the morning or LATE at night to watch the cargo planes (MD11, 767) take off. Only time you will ever see them at Mitchell-use the Flightaware app to see what time they depart/arrive
  • 88.5 to listen to departure and arrival
  • You can listen to the chatter on 88.5 fm during spring through fall
  • yes, you can still listen to the tower/pilots on 88.5
  • 88.5 works, but there is static between chatter which can last minutes
  • Supposed to be able to listen to plane chatter at 88.5 FM but I don't think that's the case any longer
  • A "legal" way to park and watch planes!
