Hi, fellow a.netters,
I'll be heading to Maui in mid-May. While there are obviously plenty of other interesting things to do on the island, I certainly wouldn't mind allocating a day for spotting and photographing around Kahului Airport (OGG).
From the a.net photo database, I found only 7 pages of photos, which makes me wonder about the photo opportunities out there. Based on the available maps, I noticed quite a few roads running right along the perimeter of the airport. Anyone know of any good spots around there (if at all)? Anything in particular to watch out for?

I was there in late September last year and found several roads that offered good spots to photograph from. I was only there for a few hours before turning in the rental car and catching our flight home but I didn't get stopped or hassled.
I agree, when landing from the south there are several spots to shoot from.
Also a nice helicopter base of tourist helicopters on the east side of the field if your into shooting those.
