Do the UK charter companies still use Sanford when flying into Orlando? Or have they switched over to MCO? I've recently seen photos at MCO with airlines Britannia in the background. If they now go to MCO, what airlines use Sanford other than Pan Am? Is the airport worth a visit when I'm in Orlando in October?

Finally, I will not have a car so I will be getting to sanford by Taxi. If I get dropped off at the terminal, will I be able to get to any good shooting areas by foot?

Thanks,

Dave

The UK charters currently using Sanford are Airtours, Monarch, Air 2000 and JMC(?). The exception is Britannia which uses MCO. However, I think Britannia have used Sanford on a number of occasions.
Hope this helps.

YHU when are you going to Sanford Airport? The reason I ask is because I will be there on the 21st of Aug touring Comair.

Boeing747-700,

I will be there around October 20th or so. A few months after you.

Demoose,

Thanks, I am looking forward to seeing Monarch and the likes as I am British and don't get much of a chance to see them in the Montreal area.

Dave

YHU,

as for domestic service, I understand that ATA also serves SFB. So maybe you will see L-1011's?



Next flight.... who knows.

Sanford airport has a web page. Do a search for it. If you had a rental car, it would be worth the trip. Forget the taxi though. Very long, expensive trip.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

YHU - just for your information, MCO is the code for Orlando. If you are flying into there and want to get to Sanford or Daytona, there is a limo service by the name of DOTS(Daytona Orlando Transportation Service). You really don't need reservations but they do help. The price isn't too high even if you go all the way from MCO to DAB. They also make another stop but I am not sure just what it is, they also will deliver you door to door if you are going to Daytona. Good luck and post some pics if they come out like you want.

ATA is running 2 L1011's per day ( except for sun. &Wed) out of SFB.

flights depart in early evening. Great chance to see the L1011 before they all go extinct.

http://www.orlandosanfordairport.com

great flight schedule up on there...

Air 2000, Airtours, Monarch, JMC (which is using a britannia 767) pan am, southeast, planet, aeropostale, aeromexico, ATA L10s (go to europe) some 737 going to PAP with the abbriviation EMA (i havent figgered this out yet) ryan intl, and miami air are the frequent visitors. there is usually a suprise or 2. there is also a rebuilt connie there across the airfield in starport, the FBO.

thrusday, friday, saturday and sunday are the best days.

if they are landing on 27, the employee parking lot is the best spot. if they are using 9, which they are about 75% of the time, there are some spots, but they would be quite a hike walking. just head in the direction of the rental car area and walk along the backroads untill you find something that works.

hope this helps,
N

ATA flys mostly to London Gatwick and Manchester but also Belfast, Edinburgh , Prestwick.

There is also a hot rumor that ATA may start a winter U.K. program using their new 757-300's.

By the way if anyone is interested in seeing the 757-300 it is in MCO twice daily.
