I will be in HNL really soon and wanted to know the ins and outs of spotting in paradise. I prefer shooting landings, and wanted to know specific locations that are OK to hangout in. I am an airline employee and never go anywhere without the badge, but I prefer not sticking my nose (or lens) where it doesn't belong. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy hanging out on a street corner or parking lot, as long as the Hawaii 5 - 0 won't be coming after me.
Also, having checked out the map, it appears you need access to Hickam AFB to shoot landings from the West. Is this possible and if so how? Thanks in advance for all the help.
