Jc2354, I live in Orlando. I am quite aware of their security measures.
. Do the two attacks mean "Westerners" have to fear the same happening right at home?
COURSE!!!. (Sarcasm OFF) MCO
had found these examples to be more than enough to close down our beloved Frontage Rd in fear of a terrorist shooting down arriving aircraft. I agree with what you said, Aloges. Now please tell MCO
While there are no fences, there are ditches and canals between the runway and publicly accesible areas. From checkpoints and control towers these canals are observed 24/7 and if anyone swims, drives or climbs over them there, police is there in seconds.
Ok... I was not aware of this. Forgive my ignorance. From picture I have seen, it appeared there was flat, level ground the whole way to the runway. I am familiar with ditches/canals being used because MCO
, as Jc2354 mentioned, uses them around their airsides. There are no fences, which would make great for shooting pics. Problem is, no where to pull off, and it is almost a guarantee that a cop would drive by sooner or later and scare us off with the amount of traffic that goes past the airsides.
Again, I can't wait to visit AMS
some day, I just wasn't sure what kinda security measures are/were taken there and now I know. Thanks everyone!
