    I went to the mounds around 1:15PM Monday and had no problem, except for them switching to 31. There were actually a few of NYPD's Finest there and they were complete gentlemen and stayed to watch and were equally disappointed when they switched runways.

    I believe that you were the photographer that I met yesterday at the mounds. Did you manage to catch a photo of that Lufthansa A380? There was an Emirates A380 that flew in a few minutes after that I managed to catch while in traffic.

    Never said derail just give it a break. Also probably better to actually be in the park and not in street. As for not believing the police that is your opinion but chances are they did get a call from someone.



    True but as far as the cargo plaza situation goes we could have still been shooting there today if some common sense was used. Simple fact. By being reactive and not PROACTIVE we let an out of towner ruin a great spot regardless of whether it was private property or not.

    What do you mean we lost the cargo plaza? I still shoot from there when needed. I just don't do anything that attracts attention. Are you saying that we lost it as an "offical" spot as far as the guides on this site are concerned? Or did someone promise PAPD we wouldn't shoot from there? Because I have no plans to abandon that spot.

    And by the way, I would never even APPROACH those landing lights- that ground is more sacred than the stage Mola Ram used to tear people's hearts out on. Little Indiana Jones reference there.

    The cargo area is really a spot that we shouldn't discuss attending in public here, just like with other unofficial spotting locations.
