It's going to be hard to get really good shots. There is a place you can park your car right under the approach pattern (adjacent to the "beeline" interstate) and get some good landing shots. You will have to park your car at the far end of it. When leaving MCO go west on Lee Vista Road. There is a TGI Fridays on the corner. Just follow this road around.
You can also turn right on Lee Vista (east) and go to those business parks behind the hotels and get some nice landing shots.

When do you plan on coming? Maybe I can stop by and show you around.
I was just there on the 11th of this month, no hassle. I did spot from McCoy Rd, you won't get harassed there, and it's a decent spot to shoot from. Delta Air Cargo over by runway 17 is my other spot (for the heavies in the afternoon). SO FAR (knock on wood) nobody has stopped me or called airport authorites on me.

When I was in MCO about three weeks ago, sadly they were landing from the south all the time. When the landing are from this direction, Orlando is about as big a waste of space as they come as far as photography is concerned. I hope you get landings from the north, but if you don't, my recommendation would be go to Kennedy Space Center!

Brian & Justin,
Are you exactly sure about something as for good spotting at MCO airport and TPA airport too. As I can do think really want to go for good spotting at MCO airport. And by the way with my case about with my Nikon camera with me. Which one I can do good shot and I'm need you know about doing next plans for now.
As for you, Brian Stevenson. I know that you were working early morning at 4:30a.m. to 12:00p.m. that is 8 hours shift for Jetblue, correct? You suppose to be please reply on the email to me back now. This is bullshit as for you that not responding on the email me. You got a very big attention problems with you, Brian. You're slacker! I need you hear from me sometimes, okay? Well, goodnight!!!!
