Somehow we need to get the city to make a dedicated area for spotting. That location close to the corner of Brookpark and Rt. 237 would be a good place if it is not planned to be used for anything. Maybe once the security issues are worked out we could try?

What about the one we were talking about earlier? The one right by the merge on Brook Park? Where you go up that hill, and they have the fence, guarding nothing! Its worth a try once the level is lowered.

If you contact any of these people, please *be gentle* as they probably have nothing to do with daily ops at the airport. Since security is now a Federal matter, they also have nothing to do with TSA policies and procedures. However they may (or may not) be able to work with Airport police.
