Ok, So we have FLL and IAH.

I am making this post so that if anyone gets news about any other airports, they can post them here.

This is an All Airport Thread here. Please post any information.

DTW has been locked down seems like since 1996, the cops chased me away then.

What about that SFO parking area? I thought I heard that was locked down.

I believe Nashville and Cincinnati are still open.

I wouldn't consider DTW in a lock down. I still go up to the top level of both parking decks and never have been questioned. I feel that DTW is very friendly when it comes to spotters.

Greetings:

Well ISP isn't all that locked down. While security in the terminal and just outside the terminal is the same as everywhere else. Once you get past the checkpoints you can take pics of the planes on the ramp. Also there's still plenty of spotting areas to chose from. Plus you still can drive down the construction roads to where there building the new Southwest terminal.

Regards
Tom

Things are about to change at DTW.

I just read in the Detroit Free Press that they will be searching all cars again going into the garage.

I belive ATL is pretty much locked down to spotters. It's kinda hard to spot there anyway ( I always lose my sense of direction there, but thats another story for another time)

Is this just for out-of-concourse spotting, or can you not spot in the concourse anymore? I will have a ticket, so I will have an explanation that I am just "enjoying the scenery."

Add the Frontage Road location on the north side of the Beeline Expressway on the north side of MCO (Orlando Int'l). However there are certainly others locations at MCO from which to shoot and spot.

What happened to the IAH Locked Down thread?

Well, anyway, I wrote a letter to the ACLU about the IAH closure. We'll see where that goes.

I'd hope that that nonsense with closing spotting areas will be stopped in the near future.
If it goes on, it seems like the terrorists have win! We can't change our everyday life because of them!!!

Here in Europe its not such extremely like in the US.... im hoping that you can go spotting again without that limits in the near future.

Good Luck

Oh yes - Sign up the list from the topc >> IAH NEEDS YOUR HELP....! << !!!!!!!

So it will be possible to save another spotting area!

greetings from INN.

I dont think DFW has closed Founders Plaza yet. http://www.dfwairport.com is usually very up to date, and will always inform of changes. Right now, they are only listing the new parking policies. DFW is very spotter friendly, and I doubt that they will close it (unless we go to level Red).

Let me reitterate

I do not know EXACTLY what is closed and waht is not closed at ATL

However; They are back to the restrictions that were lifteda few months ago... put forth after 9/11. So, if this means whatever you are saying, yes. But, I do not know what they closed after 9/11 so I cannot answer your questions. If anyone CAN, please post it here. I would imagine that the roads around the airport (Loop Road; yea, origional name) are being patrolled, but am not 100% sure

I took some pictures of how empty BTV was at 8:30PM and a TSA guy gave me a dirty look and looked like he would have detained me if he knew who I was, luckily I was able to put my small Exilim camera right in my pocket, and look not suspicous.


What now?

Flyingbronco05,

Are you sure that's the correct article? It doesn't say anything about Founders Plaza.

Unfortunately, it looks as if that nice spotting area off Smithtown Ave. is lost and gone forever  Sad

Wouldn't it just be easier to deport all non citizens from these questionable countries?

Some of these non-citizens, if not a majority, are here because they were persecuted in the above-mentioned questionable countries. You could kick them out, but where would they go? Either someone has to take them or they would end up back where they could be imprisoned, tortured or killed.

The US has long taken pride in its willingness to accept refugees fleeing religious, ethnic, or political persecution. The reason it is hard to get into the US from many countries(like Haiti and sometimes Cuba) is because the welcome does not always extend to those fleeing harsh economic conditions or who simply think there are better opportunities in the US economy. Refugees from the "axis of evil" have a much easier time proving their case that they are fleeing persecution than those from more friendly or less oppressive regimes. This is how it should be.

Even apart from its history.... the US has a responsibility as an industrialized country to accept people fleeing from oppression. We even have a responsibility to accept a reasonable number (though not all - we can't do it all on our own) of those fleeing NOT from oppression but from starvation, war or other dangerous conditions.

In short, it is both compassionate and in our long-term interest to harbor such people. I hope we do not let the terrorists win by letting the fear of terror stop us from doing the right thing.

So in the meantime let them overcrowd our country and take our airport jobs?

If they want to stay here, then they should learn English and become a citizen.

I know about oppressed people coming to the United States- I am Albanian, but I also learned the language and am a citizen.
