While it may not be the greatest place for spotting heavies, you would think that at least some cells have a pretty good view of the action. Are there any other prisons that have good proximity to airports? Is Rikers the best place for an aviation enthusiast to be encarcerated?

Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 1): The Changi prison in Singapore offers nice views as well:
I think the Singapore prison wins hands down! It even shares the name of the airport. Tons of heavies, and it looks like a great vantage point. Counting down the days until your flogging/caning wouldn't be so bad if you get to watch 744s all day (not to mention being the first to see the A380).
Has anyone here been locked up in any of these places? Do the guards allow binoculars?

"La Joyita" prison is just on the departure en of runway 3R at Tocumen in Panama City so you get to see all of the copa 737 airplanes taking off, plus a few heavies every once in a while.
Just one "tiny" problem, "La Joyita" is probably one of the worst places in Panama, thats the place where you lock the worst offenders and throw away the key. And lets just say living standarts are up to par with latin american prisons.

The airport that serves the island of Tortola, British Virgin Islands (actually on Beef Island and connected by a bridge) also has the main prision for the BVI. Problem is that all you get to see are biz jets, AA's ATR-42's and other turboprop commercial a/c's and General aircraft.
Changi would qualify for both "best prison" and "best cemetery". As far as I understand, they hang people at Changi (and quite a few they do...) and bury them in a remote corner of Changi prison afterwards.
........and a good one too! No bitching! Styal prison is very close to MAN, unfortunately (for me) its a female prison so If I commit a serious crime I better get booked in for the operation............
