Recently got into aviation photography. Purchased the OAG world CD (almost $300/year!) so I could identify what airlines I could anticipate seeing on a given day. Is there a better/cheaper way for me to do this? I find unless you know the city a airline is departing for, you have to take guesses at what might be flying into a particular airport and then search it on the OAG. Already I've missed some great shots because I didn't know a particular flight existed from a city to the airport where I was shooting pictures.
If any of you "seasoned spotters" out there could share ways to make this process simpler and cheaper, I'd very much appreciate it!
