Just found out that my company will be sending me for two weeks in Orlando soon. Search on the forum gave no results so... Anyone could help about spotting opportunities at MCO and other local airports?

I remember flying into SFB over a trailor park....it was pretty close to the airport....i think fence view are very possible especially when aircraft are taxiing to the gate... we landed on the rwy at the top left of the screen 09 maybe?
Pretty good traffic there... so its worth a visit!

I don't see too many pics from MCO here
Hmmm there are 1,788 photos from MCO on airliners.net.....lol. Seriously though, forget MCO. The only way your allowed to take photos is on top of the 9th floor on the parking garage, it's a joke. They fenced off Frontage Rd., and OPD or airport ops will chase you out if they see you. There are good spots along the runways, but you won't last long. I just got a job at an FBO here, and they told me I can't even take photos without permission from GOAA!
TPA is only a bit over an hour's drive and it's much better. You don't get the 747's, but on the parking garage they will not hassle you, and I was on the perimeter one day and a cop pulled up and asked if we got anything good.
SFB I've been hearing bad things lately. Also it's not too busy this time of year.
