It's a city that is well known internationaly. With some renevations...it already has an Olympic Park for the events to take part in as well as a brand new stadium north of city (for FIFA World Cup 2006). It is very attractive and tourist friendly for those who are from out of town spectators for the games. A nice night life, vote for Munchen!!!

The "A.net Summer Olympics" should be NY City/metro area. We have 4 airports (JFK, EWR, LGA and Islip) so get almost all types and models of commercial pax and freigher a/c, many international airlines and almost all USA based major airlines and many LLC's (Islip has WN service). The NYC area provided plenty of hotels and other entertainment.
The spotting events could be difficult, especially at EWR. Other events could easliy be held and could include: the luggage transfer relay race, the marathon - to the airports in traffic, spot as many different airlines and aircraft in 1 hour, name as many airlines serving an airport in 20 minutes event, the connecting flight sprint and middle distance races, the quickest to get through TSA security race and others, the find the cheapest flight match, the connect between the airports relay race, the patiance during delays from summer thunderstorms event, an event to see how long one can spot at any airport without being harrassed by the police event, and so on.
