When I visit SAT I check in with the airport police shift sargent and take photos from on top the long term parking garage. Approach shots with blue sky all look the same. I try to take photos of the planes on the runway / taxi way. Once SAT builds the new terminal shots from the parking garage will be limited to runway 3 and not 12R/30L
