Spotting In The US Southwest

Sun Jun 17, 2007 7:28 pm

Hey community!

Soon I will spend half a year near Phoenix, Arizona.It will be my virst visit to the USA and so I have a lot of questions about spotting in the US:

1.) What should I respect, especially concerning police. I mean: Are there any difficulties after 9/11?
2.) Which airports do you recommend in the southwest states. I definetly want to go to PHX, LAS, LAX, SFO but are there any "insider tips" for this area? Because it is my virst visit I will be happy even about "standard traffic"  Smile
3.) Can you recommend any weblinks where I can find out the differrent photo points?
4.) Ist there anything else to consider?

Thank you, I am looking forward to may stay in Arizona,

Quoting Muellae (Thread starter):

I have only been to PHX and LAX of the ones you listed. Both are great. I really enjoyed PHX, can't wait to get back.

For PHX, I would get in contact with some folks in this thread:

Don't forget SNA also.

Have fun.  wave

If you're in PHX, take an extra day to do Tucson and Goodyear for stored airliners - sometimes exotic ones.
Visit the Pima museum in TUS and if military interests you then sign up for the Davis-Monthan tour.

Unfortunately you can't get in to Marana, but the (distant) view from the I-10 highway is impressive in itself.

PHX is really easy to shoot, but it gets boring, as its usually US Airways Airbuses and Southwest 737s 90% of the time.
