I've been down in IFP (Laughlin, NV /Bullhead City, AZ) and there is a road that goes right by the end of the runway on the north side that gives an awesome good view down the runway and everything.. I tried to get a picture but the sun was at the wrong angle.. they don't get much for big planes other than the SY/G4 charters.. but it still is really cool. I'll try to get a picture when I'm down there Thursday. I think we have some IFP members that hopefully know what I'm talking about.
I will be at IFP in a couple of weeks! Probably right after X-Mas. I use the road you spoke of to enter the Airport since I am coming from Laughlin. I am there all the time in the winter. When you are there check to see if the new terminal is done! It should be, it was very behind when I left in March. SCY is scheduled service and G4 is charters for Harrah's mostly. You may get lucky and see the Sky King 732 which does charters for the Riverside and other houses. There is a C130 that comes in once in a while. FlagshipAZ (Tom) lives right under the approach to 34. I will try to get a hold of him. I love shooting from the road you spoke of when they arrive 16. Which is where I shot the pic above. Make sure to eat at IN-N-OUT! If you stay till Friday night the Flamingo has a great seafood buffet.
Haha cool picture. I might or might not be there Friday, I'm up in Vegas but mom is in the hospital down there. And IN-N-Out is an awesome place to eat. Unfortunately I think my dad and I got food poisoning from that Carl's Jr. there along the river.. argh.

Hope all goes well. I drive to LAS a lot all winter. We should spot together.

I would avoid that one. I ate in there when they first opened and quickly noticed the employees had the worst attitude. One night two of them got in this bad fight I actually left. I noticed the one down 95 is better and has much better service. Hey don't forget El Palacio in Bullhead! Awesome Mexican food!
