You're right there isn't anything about Newark for several reasons. Over the past couple of years it's become very difficult to shoot at EWR
and the pleasure in doing so is really not there. Almost anywhere you go you are chased away quickly. I can remember spending hours in the Ikea lot across the turnpike shooting inbound 04 and outbound 22 operations. Now they call the Elizabeh PD
and you get chased out. As you do in the long term lots under the 22 approach. Stopping on the NJTP isn't recommended as I'm sure the police would not like it and probably give you a ticket for stopping without a good cause. You just can't hang on the side of the NJTP for hours
And, I guess another big reason is the traffic. About 85 to 90% of the traffic is CO
blue tails of all degrees. Not that they aren't nice to shoot, but you can only shoot so many before you get bored.
is my airport of choice for several reasons. First, for the most part, it's pretty much hassle free. You're shooting off grounds from public locations and most of the time don't get bothered by the local authorities. They might come check you out but I've never been chased away to date. And the variety at JFK
is just so much more. With all the foreign carriers and the heavies it's just more interesting.
I'd like to go back to EWR
and shoot more, but it's just not worth the hassle to me.
