The area known for airplane watchers near the Ottawa Airport has been shut down by the Ottawa Airport Authority. Barriers were installed Leitrim Road to deter airline enthusiasts several months ago, despite people still stopping to watch the planes come and go.
Airport officials say that the closure is because of people leaving various kinds of garbage in the area, potential damage to navigational markers and some people using off-road vehicles on the property.
So the Ottawa Airport Authority closed the last remaining spotter location on Leitrim Road. Used for generations of Spotters 👎👎👎👎👎— Ottawa Aviation (@OttawaAvSpotter) July 13, 2017
