Tried to do a bit of spotting today at FLL and was disappointed to find
the viewing areas next to 9L were closed off again. Has this become a
permanent closing, or is it just because VP Cheney was due in town today?

I am not in favor of closing down the spotting areas, but I can understand their reasoning. I think that when an event like the Air and Sea show was in town, or in the event of a VIP (Bush or Chaney) because they are the leaders of our country, and I feel that they need to be safe and having the viewing area is not safe....I understand that you can shoot down a plane from pirmeter road or I95, but you cannot close that, obviously. So, I feel if it is done with safety in mind and not with stupid code red or orange or whatever, it is fine by me.
