Best Airports In The US For Spotting

Sat Nov 12, 2005 7:28 am

In addition to the worst airports for spotting thread, I thought I'd make a best airport spotting list too. Here is mine, everyone add you're list too!

MIA
FLL
TPA
LGA
LAX
IAD
DCA
ATL (not bad but not the best. too many DL)

Others I've heard are good:

JFK
Santa Ana
SFO

LGA/JFK can be great for spotting if the Port Authority police don't nail you... and they often do..

I haven't been out in a while though-- maybe they've loosened up? Then again, if it's inane and stupid, the Port Authority probably does it... so I'd guess they are still pretty strict...

MSP, DEN, LAX, ATL, GFK (Lol),

All of which I think have good areas to take pics.

Quoting JBLUA320 (Reply 1):

Nail you?  confused 

Al they can do is look at your ID, you are doing nothing wrong. I have met many NCPD and PA police at JFK, they have been fine.

Haven't been to MIA or LAX but JFK is a little better than LAS. Still my favorite.

I realy enjoyed spotting at JFK, within the airport perimeters by terminal 4 is excellent!  Smile

I've heard LAX is awesome! SFO is good also, but I didn't have much time there!

SAN is also great, along with LAS!

EWR is not very easy though  Sad

I agree with the above ,but would like to add:
ROC (yes,not as exciting as LAX or JFK) but not bad. Good off-airport pics can be had-spots where the Sherrifs can't kick you out.

BUF is good (though only for AM shots). Can be very cold in the Winter  Smile

My other faves are:
LAX
LAS
MIA
FLL (was better when the 'holes' were there  Sad )
GSO
Champagne For My Real Friends,and Real Pain For My Sham Friends
