we've got a UA DC-10, some US MD80s, and a UA 737-200 w/ no engines. That's it.
There is a spotters area on Sunset by the post office, you can tune your radio to 88.5 FM and listen to live ATC.
Airport police WILL ask you to leave if you get a ladder near the airport and take pictures. Just a warning. To avoid this, park in the open field just SOUTH of the spotting area off of Sunset Avenue (south end of the airport) and you can use your ladder or get on top of your car there and Airport police or Metro (Vegas cops) won't approach you.
There is another good spot on Eastern... 1 block south of Russell.. forgot the name of the intersection, but there is an area between the jetblast wall and the dust-mound to get shots of aircraft taxing up for departure on 25R.
Another good spot (its somewhat fenced off, but accessible) is at Paradise and Tropicana... just walk about 1,500 feet west of the intersection and you are directly under the flight paths to 19L/R...
To get to the "aircraft grave yard" take Tropicana to Koval, go south.. follow the road until you are almost facing Hacienda.... the road turns to the right toward Mandalay Bay and Luxor (after the stoplight on Koval, fyi), you'll see a pink plaza, kinda take a left but go straight (still going south).... you'll see an apartment complex on your left on the other side of the wash (empty waterway)... go to the next road (there's a Panda Express on the corner of this road and LVB, you can't miss Panda, and take a left... you'll be staring at the MD80s and DC-10 at that point. You can turn right on the access road and stop short of the FBO entrance and take some good shots... but it's a 12 foot fence, so good luck. METRO or Airport Police will approach you, possibly Military Police, if you are there long... Military Police will inquire because their ramp for the Area 51 flights/ Janet Ramp / is adjacent to the "graveyard"'
