Hi Andrew, I spent some hours in TUL this August and there are some decent locations at both ends of rwy 18L/36R - I believe at 36R there is an official viewing location, while at 18L there is a spot opposite the AA maintenance (you're a bit low there but it's a cool perspective - due to weather, none of these shots are online though). Regular traffic is standard fare but there can be some interesting stuff.
Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been...

There is not much to see here in Tulsa. There are public viewing areas on the southwest corner of 36R and northeast corner of 18L, both locations are closed for stupid reasons but you can still pull into the driveway and park there. There are also bizjet hangars located between the parallels, one hangar has a parking lot that faces 18L/36R that you can shoot from. I believe the 138th FW is deployed so F-16 action is limited.

I liked the Fine Airport Parking Garage. Paid $6.50 to park in the outdoor lot, caught the shuttle to the garage, went to the 5th floor, and shot some arrivals/departures. Very hazy, 97°F, nothing came out, not like it would have if they haze wouldn't have been there, my lenses aren't much to write home about I went to KRVS about 9-10 miles from KTUL, and shot alot of Cessnas. Busiest airport in the state in terms of operations is KRVS.
Good luck, and don't get too bored at TUL where you wanna jump off the parking garage.

Just one more thing to bring up on one of our long photo trips, huh Ralp. (Formerly Ralph)
