How Is Mexico City Airport?

Mon Oct 27, 2003 10:04 pm

I just wanted to ask some of you if you are a local or have experience with MEX how it is to spot there. It is possible that I will travel to MEX in November and take the chance to spot there.

1. Is it safe? Doesn??t want stand there 5min after without equipment (clothes)
sounds a bit strange but u will know what i mean

2. Photo positions: are there good ones? Car should be aviable so distance isn??t the problem. Or do they have an observation deck?

Will be thankful for information.

Regards

Tim

Hi Tim,

1. Is it safe.... yes... of course during the day... but after midnight, dunno what things might happen if you stay alone and with all your gear.

2. No car is needed, unfortunatly we don't have an observation deck....

If you want some additional information, just let me know! If you want to met with me and other friends, just let me know and I'll see if it's possible for me or either Juan Carlos Guerra or other friends can go spotting with you!

Bienvenido a México!

Sure, do.
Its safe down here
I created a site about spotting in Mexico.
I'm working in the English page and its almost finished.
Enter the English part and then to the article pages, there you'll find the section spotting in MEX

www.geocities.com/jcguerra_aviation

You'll find great detailed information there.

Welcome to MEX
