I have 10 days of holiday vacation coming up in mid March and I wanted to ask all the great aviation photographers on this forum if there is one travel place (other than St Maarten) where one should not miss going there.

Heathrow might be nice over in London.. but the best i'd suggest is Hong Kong.. #1 airport in the world HKG, and you can see from the long list of photos from HKG, that it sure is worth the visit.. and when you're here in asia.. u can visit japan as well at the same time.. a few days in HKG, a few days in Japan.. great trip for spotting..
but of course, this might kinda thin out your wallet big time

From what I hear HKG is plagued with constant haze and the spotting locations require very powerful lenses?
Europe is your best bet IMHO... try AMS, or FRA they are spotter-friendly and receive a good mix of traffic.

AMS is definitely one of the best airports Europe has to offer. In case you prefer the southern hemisphere I can highly recommend Sydney with loads of good spots, many widebodies & very friendly people. I'm sure you'll find new angles with your journalistic eye.

Japan? Hong Kong?? Pish Posh..
Come to KOREA! Seoul-Incheon is extremely underated for a major hub airport and there are very few pictures taken from that country.
It is extremely modern and a very advanced airport which I assure you will be filled with things to do and places to go.
Otherwise a long lens photojournalist like Mark needs a trip down under to the land of the Kiwis. Auckland/Wellington is my suggestion with wicked X-Winds and stunning scenery.
Or why not, Iqaulit?/ That place I hear is wicked..
