For T2, I think you should add that if the West Hold Bay is in use, it's impossible to get good landing shots.

I was pokign around by the US AIRWAYS Hanger(EAST-SIDE) and found a great spot by a gate but I forgot what the gate number was. Location provides good side-view Landing shots.

Is it Gate 119?  That's a great angle for evening 26 arrivals, although I've only ever been on the secure side of that site so I couldn't tell you where to park...

Hello,

I was at Spotting area 5 (the employee lot entrance) yesterday and the police chased me away. I would like to know if this happens often.

Thanks, and excuse this, as this is my first post here.
 :) Zach

I spoke to the Operations today and Phx Police, thee was a certain Airport condition that they asked to have certain areas not used. This is just a certain time. It does not happen to often. So I would not make a huge deal about this. Thanks for the update, and congrats on the 1st post. I see you a lot on the A.net forums.
