I am an old-time spotter from before all the good spots at JFK were closed to spotters. How easy it was to take photos with no hassles from security. Spotting lately is a nightmare; especially when you have no car and must do all the spotting from inside the airport. In those days of the 80's and 90's nobody bothered spotters and airlines all had ticket offices in the City and would gladly give spotters postcards, in-flight magazines,ticket jackets, posters, plastic frequent flyer cards, timetables and more. Nowadays, they give nothing. Public relations has gone down the drain !
