Hello, I was just wondering if any airports have tours. I heard that Tampa International does some. Are there any important things I need to do for a tour? I was asking so I can get a few photos and get them on here.

About a year ago, I read in some "visit FLORIDA" brochure, that 5 commercial airports have tours, but darn if I can remember which ones.
But yes TPA does have one. Took it about 5 years ago. We went out to the old fire station on the east side. Actually, I think TPA has 3 seperate ones. They IIRC require at least 5 people. For all Florida airports, check their websites or call public relations offices.
I feel woozy....what did you put in that Pudding Pop?
Not unless you have a 200mm lens. 400mm is plenty for what you would need. You can't have it both ways in the case of MCO. Either you shoot from the garage and other "places" that are available or you don't shoot at all. It's amazing what a little phone call and question will get a person nowadays. Alot of places that you can shoot from just require one to ask first, not just pull up and start going at it.

Quoting Koryo (Reply 8): True, but heat haze would probably ruin your shots.
Absolutely in some cases. The closing of the Red Lot was a real blow there to photogs and it's hard to find a good spot to shoot from. There are some reasonably good places but caution should be execised.
When I spoke with the folks at GOAA, they were fairly bold with acknowledging the Red Lot closing. They were fairly quick to assure that it's re-opening is unlikely too.
