I was going to ask, how are the police/security towards spotters? There seems to be tons of pictures from PHX so I'm guessing it can't be too bad.

I have spotted at KPHX many, many times. Three times I have been approached by Airport Police, had a pleasant conversation with them, and always ended with us wishing each other a good day. Absolutely no issue at all.

Hi,


I noticed you also mentioned wanting to know about the surrounding airports as well. If you head out towards the Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport on Fridays and Saturdays there usually are some T-38, or Harriers, or F-18s. Its about a 30-40 minute drive from Sky Harbor depending on the traffic. There is a really nice park to spot from a couple hundred yards from the terminal building.

Regards,
Kenneth A.
