Hello to all

I live about 5 miles from the San Jose / Norman Mineta International Airport.I want to shoot some pics,and do a little viewing of the planes taking off,as well as landing. In the old days,I use to park down at the old General Aviation Building(down near 880). But that location is no longer available, where is a person to go and take pics and view the planes at?.. I while back I parked in the Long Term lot at the most Northern part of the Runway, an Airport Security person drove up, and asked what I was doing.......said for me to leave....rather than get into a big hassle, I got in the truck and went on home...

Any help is much appreciated

You might want to try a search. This was discussed recently. Simple search should answer your question.  Big grin

Yep... we covered it. You can look back in my profile for some of the threads. I happen to be in the Raddison on Fourth right now listening to the planes taking off 2 miles away (I can see them if I look out the window!)
