I used to work for Dollar Rent a Car. Went out to LAX about 3 years ago with my good friend, Josh Rawlin. I had a Kia Sportage or something like that. This was before 9/11. Anyway, I'm not exactly a lightweight and I got on the roof of that SUV. Before the end of the weekend, it looked like the SUV had been hit with giant hail-stones..........thought I would be fired from my job. Not one word was ever said about it......
the pilot's Girl Friday was shooting with a panoramic disposable...After I sent them a copy of the photo she sent me a photo of me shooting her airplane. Very nice. (typically I have no way of posting it...)
As for shooting with height...I convinced my wife that I really, really, really needed an F-150 pickup truck to haul stuff for her garden. If you put a contico storage box in the back it gives you something good and solid to stand on, giving you the height to look over any fence. Also a handy place to store the beer cooler.

Good god, Sven, are your hearing still functioning after standing that close to a FM in motion? That thing, as another forum user commented in one of my TR which featured the Fouga, is only good at 2 things: Making noise & burning fuel.

As far as I know, I have not been photographed while spotting (although I think Vasco Garcia was close in that wide-angle shot from the roundabout at Heathrow), but I have photographed other spotters when they had no clue about it
Who needs a 2X teleconverter for a 400mm lens anyway?
Notice how no-one is looking at the FedEx A310 in the background, and they call themselves spotters!

I received these via e-mail from a VIP that was on the terrace behind me. I was wearing a safety harness by Museum rules as there was no handrails to keep me from falling off. And yes, I was bundled up pretty good.
