Interesting stats Tobi... I've shot 5 of the ones in the top 10 (not LHR yet though) and I've shot a total of 10 in the entire list. I've got a lot of traveling to do still! I wonder who can claim they have been to the most airports from that list.

My personnel top 3 from the list:
1) NYC of course (EWR/JFK)
2) HKG (great Kai Tak memories)
3) FRA (18W spot rocks)

Honorary mention: MIA and LAX

I've only shot at 5 of the top 48...

No surprise that LHR is in the top spot. The Brits love their airplanes! As evidenced by the outpouring of affection for Concorde. Not to say the Swiss don't love their planes though....ZRH is #2. And FRA & AMS just have excellent locations for getting great pictures, and they are major gateways to the West so the variety is good.

I find it really strange that KSFO San Francisco is right at the bottom of that list. I'd expect such a busy port to have as many spotters/photogs as there flights.

I'd better make a couple of trips there to stock up on some shots soon.

Here's my list:

1. London - Heathrow (LHR / EGLL) [ 19479 Photos ]
2. Zurich (- Kloten) (ZRH / LSZH) [ 14960 Photos ]
3. Frankfurt - Main (Rhein-Main AFB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF) [ 14020 Photos ]
5. Sydney - Kingsford Smith International (Mascot) (SYD / YSSY) [ 12645 Photos ]
6. Los Angeles - International (LAX / KLAX) [ 10662 Photos ]
7. Manchester - International (Ringway) (MAN / EGCC) [ 9409 Photos ]
11. Hong Kong - Chek Lap Kok International (HKG / VHHH) [ 6538 Photos ]
12. New York - John F. Kennedy International (Idlewild) (JFK / KJFK) [ 5794 Photos ]
13. Paris - Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) (CDG / LFPG) [ 5731 Photos ]
16. Phoenix - Sky Harbor International (PHX / KPHX) [ 5168 Photos ]
18. Copenhagen - Kastrup (CPH / EKCH) [ 4813 Photos ]
19. Toronto - Lester B. Pearson International (Malton) (YYZ / CYYZ) [ 4801 Photos ]
23. Brussels - National (Zaventem) / Melsbroek (BRU / EBBR / EBMB) [ 4308 Photos ]
27. Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed) [ 3324 Photos ]
