Airports with spotting groups

Sat Jun 01, 2019 5:32 am

Hi all... I'm currently searching for airports that have spotter pages up on Facebook or wherever else online. I am aware of TPA and MSY having pages, but are there any other airports out there that have groups of their own, preferably ran by an airport itself like TPA? I am trying to compile a list of examples I need for something important and would like some help.

Thanks in advance!

I know my airport has one (not run by the airport), but don't whether you're interested in a regional airport in The Netherlands? Understandable if not of course.

True, probably not too high of a consideration but I am still willing to tack that onto a list.

Do you happen to know how much effort it takes to maintain the page, like what responsibilities there are? I imagine it doesn't take much to maintain it.

I’m not sure how much it takes, but likely some moderation in terms of spam/off-topic removal. Plus of course making sure that everyone plays by the rules (whatever the rules may be).

I know there is also a google group which I'm not part of.

There is one for JFK, LGA, and EWR as well on Facebook (and Messenger). This becomes especially important locally when the United Nations is in session.
