Viewing Area At LGA And Other Spots.

Mon Mar 10, 2003 6:55 am

I read about it in this month's issue of Airliner World and I want to know if it's still open and how are the shots there? I saw some shots from the database and I was wondering about other areas to spot at LGA and how are they as well. I am going in June and I was wondering how they are including that area with the rocking chairs. I checked the other posts from past times but I want updated info on this viewing area plus the others.

If you check the horizon...you can see the shot is taken from the rooftop...obviously passengers can't get access to rooftop

check some earlier post for LGA spotting...there are plenty of spots listed!

Contact Phil at pdernerjr@hotmail.com

Him and I "discovered" the dock at the end of RWY13 (beginning of 31) this summer, and he lives out in college point and he usually likes to take people around to spot!

Wait....this month's airliners world had an article about LGA spotting?

What issue? (soemtimes the one that comes out THIS MONTH is actually for one or two motnhs in advance, so that is why I ask. )

And yes, I am more than happy to show anyone around LGA. Especially when ti gets warmer.  Smile

A little bit towards the time I'm leaving to LGA I can make up a spotters meet and we can see who will come.
