I bought up this exact same idea back in 2004 (looking for my lengthy post now) of allowing spotters to assist the police at ORD instead of always being hassled by the police for taking pictures of the planes. I even had a meeting with the FAA and a couple airport representitives but I was told to go away.

Discussion I started about forming a spotting group from 2004:

This is very cool for an airport to have a program like this, as I know for a long time ORD was not exactly spotter friendly.

At the same time, this article goes way over the top dramatizing their actual security usefulness. "New Warriors on Terror". Uhh...

I'd like to see programs like this at all major airports.

(there's two threads on this so I'll post in both)

PHX Has a program like this, the PHX Airport Watch. Many PHX Spotters are apart of it
