The action at DAB is hardly hot... Indeed, I would not recommend sitting there for more than a few minutes such is the lack of pace. I've been several times and never stopped to shoot anything other than what's parked on the various ramps around the airport.

There seemed to be plenty of places around the end of the runway to shoot stuff lining up, and round the back near the tower (need a car - too far to walk) there's a bunch of Convairs parked, and a Northwest MD-80 and a Turkish Airbus being cut up. However, if I were you I'd forget DAB, hire a car, and go over to Orlando which is only about 70-80 miles if I remember correctly.

andy said it...that's exactly what it's like...
delta/asa have a few daily flights in and continental has about 2 flights...i would definitely head over to MCO for a day...that's what i did...DAB isn't exciting at all unless you like watching zillions of ERAU's Cessnas in the pattern...
