Eddie,

Royal and I have shot there from a business park located on the north end west of the runway. No one bothered us while we were there. We used a ladder to see over the fence. They will taxi out, hold the brakes and power up. Perfect for side on sunny shots

You don't need a ladded for either spot, but you will have to shoot through a fence if you don't have one. I shoot through the fence most of the time.

I LOVE that spot. Is the couch still there?
