...Small airport, big opportunities. The fence there is 7ft--yes thats right--7ft! All I need is a 2ft stepstool to clear the fence.
Think only EWR has that good spot where you can see the whole way down the runway? haha--go to the Wawa food market off airport and park in the rear parking lot--the end of the runway is about 300 yds in front of you, and you can see all the way down it(nice dip in the middle).
For those who want a sweet spotting area, go to ABE!

Hey i've been to AVP!!! there really isn't much going on there..i think they have a few US Airways MD-80 flights a day and some UAL Express CRJ flights...Comair still maybe (not right now of course) but you're right...there's hardly anything going on up there!

Errr, I have seen many airports with fences that are only 7ft and even shorter than that here in Australia, and the opportunities to look down the whole RWY is endless. You can get real close at a lot of airports here and I bet thousands of others around the world. Its no big deal really.....
