which side of plane has best view when landing/ taking off?

I know it sounds silly but my brother in law was asking which side of the plane has the best view when landing/ taking off. He has never been anywhere and is pretty excited! So coming from Wpg, and flying transat, which side has the nice view? He is hoping to get a few nice Ariel pics.....

Actually check all Manzanillo vids, there is some good shots of the Barcelo and surrounding area.

Actually, It depends which way the wind is blowing; that determines the landing direction.

Recent flights (August) planes took off to the south.

I can't resist.......the side I prefer to be on the plane is the inside!

John, she asked:

"which side of the plane has the best view when landing/ taking off"

That, in fact, would be the outside !!! LOL

Safest, would be inside.

Why not just straddle the fuselage and lean back on the leading edge of the tail section with your camera in hand.....?? You might want to invest in a good pair of gomer googles and an all-weather suit as well....

Happy landings....
