RE: Airbus A380 "Target For Terror"

The government and it's agencies are the one's that need to be paranoid, we as Americans citizens are not overly concerned about terrorism doing our day-to-day activities.

The airshow continued though. This was at Selfridge...

Spotting at YYZ is great, but the best place is atop Terminal 1 ( the roof ). You'll be able to see most of the airport from up there. Also, you'll have to pay for parking in the parking garage, but it's worth it. As far as needing a ticket to access the terminal, one is not needed.
