Hey! What about us LAX local guys (Americans) that have been spotting for 15-20 years at LAX? I don't think the Brits have a monopoly on airliner spotting. How come that goofy reporter didn't interview me?

Cheers,

Last time I checked, we also had a decent sized plane spotting group up here in New England. There are always about 5 people at BOS daily spotting, from what I have seen.

Good article.
