believe someone said in the 787 production thread that the Boeing set up in CHS is not really conducive to getting good photos. Yes, there is a road that runs right along the flightline- but if you look on streetview you will see that the blast fences block most of the aircraft. Hanging right up next to the airport fence in the narrow strip of grass between the road and fence or pond will definitely attract police attention, and you can't really see the Boeing site all that well from the terminal area.

From Google Street View, it looks like the airport access road passes by the flightline

Oh wow, that livery really looks ridiculous on the 787.

I don't know the spotter situation with regards to the CHS runway. Also some pictures have been taken in Acadiana/Victorville/Portland where these frames get painted.

Thanks for the quick feedback! I see the point with the high fence. But I would imagine some approach shots during flight tests should be possible?

I've walked on that road before. We parked at the Boeing visits center, walked up that road, took a side trail through a patch of trees and hung out on the little pier of a man-made Lake there. It's open to the public.

I was not aware that there was a visitor center where one could park and take a walk that was open to the public. I drive by there at least once a week on the frontage road between the factory and the interstate to see what new liveries are on the flightline, but have never stopped!
I have seen them patrolling the airport perimeter on ATVs as I was driving by before, so I am guessing that stopping anywhere other than a designated lot would lead to some unpleasant conversations.
