MIA is one of the best spotting airports in the world. The Holes are great atleast thats what I have heard. I never been actually spotting at MIA but I know many people on here have and they could give you more info. But talk about getting everything at MIA, heavies, commuters, Lots of old Cargo Jets DC-8 DC-10. Carribean and Latin American Airlines. Everything is at MIA. You might even get a AN-12 or DC-3.

I had made a daytrip to Washington D.C. during my vacation around Orlando, FL as I´ve never been to that town before; visited the Smithonian Museum.
Flew US MCO-DCA-MCO with around 9 hours to spend in Washington.
Second daytrip I made was flying into Pensacola, FL. Hired a car and visited the National Museum of Naval Aviation on NAS Pensacola.
Flight was on DL Conn. CRJ MCO - PNS - MCO.
Third daytrip was pure pleasure flying:
TPA - RSW - MIA on CO Express Beech 1900D (I was the only pax for TPA to RSW ...). Checking out Miami Int´l Airport.
Return MIA - TPA on a full AA B738.
An my "considered" list were:
- Flying into Key West EYW
- Flying to the Bahamas (different airlines available to use)
- Opa Locka near Miami from where Chalk´s Air (used to) operate(s) ...
P.S. I´m sure you already are aware of the numerous aviation museums around Orlando and Titusville ?
