Aircraft Spotting Guides

FALLON-PANORAMA

To further promote our interest in Military aviation,  I am consolidating information of Spotting areas of different airfields categorized by State . All information are base on local experience from my editors and myself. Please respect the local authorities and laws. ( Military bases usually involves base security and local police  ) If you are told NOT to or leave do as you are told. A lot of times its all about respecting the jurisdiction and common sense. I have seen a lot of photographer do things that I would not have done like bending barbwire on the fence so they can shoot an aircraft , shooting into the base facilities …. actions like these will soon get all of us ban from doing what we love…. Photographing aircraft and share the pictures or video.

Please Click on the corresponding bases for the information.

*** The creator and/or distributor of this document makes no claim as to the legality of observing and/or photographing aircraft at the locations specified in this document. It is expected that private property is off- limits, as well as, any locations designated as such (ex- no parking/standing zones). At times, observing/photographing aircraft can be a sensitive security issue. In any case, one should always be prepared to be confronted by law enforcement/airport or base security and be respectful at all times. While one can argue on whether aircraft observation at airports and military installations is a right or privilege, during these security- sensitive times in the U.S., I prefer to look at it as a privilege and act accordingly.***
