Three areas of interest...

1. If the 22s are in use, constitution beach. Get off at the Orient Heights or Woods Hole station on the blue line at the T and walk down bennington St until you get to the beach overpass. Need at least a 70-300 if you want to get anything smaller than the big heavies.

2. Castle island in south Boston. You need a car for this.

Both of these spots are useless in the morning, the sun is in the wrong position and you can only use them if the 4s/22s are in use.

If rwy 27 is in use there's a park in Winthrop that I like to spot at and it's good through the day. Never tried in the morning though.

If the 33/32 are in use, you are out of luck, unless you have a boat  Wink ... unless you want to try the parking garage, and then you're at risk of being tossed by Massport.

Quoting Dvincent (Reply 2):

If the lens is long enough, RWY 33L is doable ........

Thanks a lot both of you.
Not sure if I'll go finally as I don't have a car and not sure about possibilities with
such a short time. But I appreciate your help anyway.
Cheers,
