Geocache Description:

Cache is located off a local section of snowmobile trail that runs near the Bangor International Airport. Terrain is only set to 2.5 as there is a rock and tree barricade at the parking coords to keep riders from coming up the street. The remainder of the trip to the cache is a nice easy walk.

I've spent many a days lunch breaks sitting at Telford Aviation watching the airplanes come and go between the buildings. Some little single engines, some massive cargo planes that don't look like they have any business belonging in the sky, and the occasional pairings or foursomes of fighters. Through all those lunches, all I could think is how cool it would be to have a raised observatory with nothing but benches and scanners so you could hear the plilots as well as watch them do their job.

There's obviously no scanners at the cache location but the noise makes it one of the best areas to observe the planes as they come and go. There are a couple spots near the cache that allow you to walk out near the fence right at the spot where the larger planes begin to lift off when leaving and where they first touch down when coming in. A great day to get this cache and watch would be a Naval Reserve weekend when the re-fuelers tend to do a lot of touch and go training.

The cache is a .50 ammo box with appropriate cammo for its location. I am thinking about firetacking the way in to this cache as well. Bangor could use a couple more locations that are doable at night. I'm just not sure if flashlights around the airport at night would draw the right kind of attention.

Parking is off Route 2 onto the dead end part of Hammond Street. Pull right up to the baracade just past Pine Grove Cemetery. The trail begins just over the barcade on the left.
