I went to check out spottersunited.com and to my surprise, the site is not there anymore. So I was wondering if anyone has some good spots to take photos from at TPA and what times of the day are each spot to shoot at? Thanks for your help.
LGB....where you can watch the grass grow because the traffic is so slow.

Quoting CO777 (Reply 11): Thats why i go to Florida in the wintertime.Sunny all the time.
Yesterday: Not winter... VERY Sunny. This was yesterday:
First off, to the DL Hanger:
Met up with Rich, Richard and Ozell there.
Then we went to the Raytheon Area:
Then off to Chilis for lunch and then Richard went off to visit his mom for a while and Ozell went home for a short bit while Rich and I went to the park to just watch planes and chat while the sun made its transition over the western sky. Finally it did and Joey showed up as well. Later, Richard came back too.
We also saw some other nice sights at the park/beach:
Others were enjoying the day too:
We then went to the garage for a bit as they changed the runway direction and got BA:
Then after going downstairs, getting a couple tacos for a snack and eyeing some very fine British girls who were probably getting back on the BA flight later, we went back upstairs to see they changed the runway direction again. So we went to the economy lot:
About the 4th time we saw this plane:
Joey waving and yawning to the airplanes:
The group enjoying the day:
And the best way to end the day:
And a group shot to boot:
Left to Right: Ozell, Joey, Rich, Richard, and myself
SO all in all, it was a blast. Come to TPA and we'll try to show you this much fun too!
The public: They always know better, even though they often know nothing

I wish i could have been to join in the fun. I was without cash and gas this last weekend. I am heading to ZRH for the July meet and going to try to meet with people on my days off in Jun if anybody would like. I have not done any TPA stuff in a while. Need to get back down there.
