Hello folks,

Im gonna be down in Florida over the new years holiday and plan on spotting at TPA. Last time I did this was about 3 years ago (pre 911) so I dont really know if anything has changed. Are there any good vantage points? Security Bad? Just looking for general comments regarding spotting at TPA.

Bob, I don't know the current status of security since my last visit in Sept. (it was OK then), but you can find spotting locations on my site. The address is:

Now where do you suppose Art got that information ??? Big grin

N312RC: see reply 25 & 26 in this thread:


As an update, since the terror alert is high, I would stay w/ the parking garages, the northwest commerce park (Hillsborough & Benjamin) and the bowling alley (Hillsborough Ave.) All runways are open.

Also, the park and the beach south of the field are open. Lie on the beach as 747s, 777s, A340s........errrrrrr, make that A320s, 737s, MD-80s land in close proximety.

And across the bridge over at PIE, you can see unusual airlines.

Air Transat

Enjoy your stay!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I feel woozy....what did you put in that Pudding Pop?
