Where are some good spots on and off airport, and how are you treated when you are there?

And what is the traffic like?

Well, there is this little concrete pad off Goldenrod Rd. at the end of RWY 35. You can look straight down the runway. Also the Level 9 Parking Garage. You have to fill forms out though.  Sad And then there is the Delta Air Cargo parking lot next to 17 that is really kind of off and on the airport. Be careful though as you might get chased out. As for spotting times, I would say in the early evening when all the Overseas flights come in. ( Virgin, British, MartinAir, and LTU)  Smile

It's called TPA. Just spotted there for the first time this past weekend, was very nice. Cop pulled up and asked if we got anything good.

Delta Air Cargo at MCO is a good spot for runway 17, but I've been kicked out 2 times. As far as the 18's go, forget it.

Was in Orlando this past week, 26th-31st, flew in and out on VS15/16. From what I saw MCO looks like a very cool airport and I would have loved to have had more time to myself to explore the airport! New and Old colour UPS 752's parked on one small cargo ramp, a DC-8 on another ramp to the right of this one. Im hoping to go back soon on a dedicated photography/spotting trip!
