There are a couple of people that post pictures of planes from Metro Airport and I wondered where they take those pictures from. So I decided to do a search on "Detroit planewatching" and I found a few places where people do it from. The first place I visited was a little spot on Wick Road. It looks like it was going to be a road at one time but they never finished it. I didn't see any no parking or trespassing signs there, so I stopped.
I think this is a Regional Jet operated by American Airlines.
