Miri Airport VOR station
The Miri Airport VOR station is a big airport equipment structure that can be seen along Miri-Bintulu Road near the end of the Miri Airport Runway. The VOR station is an important airport instrument for assistance guiding airplanes coming in to the airport, and due to the proximity of the runway to the road this station can be seen when driving past that area on the way to or back from Taman Tunku or Lambir, and is a recognizable landmark that can't be missed when passing through.
Though this area is not accessible and totally off limits to people, there is a small grassy knoll by the side of the road about a hundred meters east along this area near a bus stop that makes a suitable spot for plane spotting.
