I know the spotting situation @ ORD and Chicago in general is not spotter friendly. However, I'm tired of this sh*t. Although I don't live in Chicago I'm willing to put my words on paper to local city officials. Let's try and by-pass Daily. Heck, lets go after the media if we have to.
I propose a dedicated spotting area (doesn't have to be near ORD terminals) where fellow enthusiasts can go and not be harassed. We would be the aviation department's civil police patrol. Also, it would be an excellent idea to see if Boeing would be willing to sponsor such an area.
What I'd like to know is if anyone knows if the ORD area is represented by a city alderman? If not an alderman how about a state representative or state congress? If so who?
Does anyone think a write-in campaign would be of any benefit?
I would love to hear the ORD enthusiast's thoughts, as well as those fellow spotters who are tired of being harassed like terrorists.
