Patrick AFB - Spotting / Orlando MCO question

Post by UK_Tomcat_Fan » Wed Jul 20, 2011 11:19 am

Is it possible to spot anything from Patrick?

Will be taking a 50d and a 100-400 as well as a 400d and a sigma 170-500

Also does anyone know how to go see the B-52 at MCO, bearing in mind I will be landing there and able to access a set of wheels ;)

Regards

Patrick afb is bordered on the coastal side by the shore road there is a car park near the top end ofthe airfield opposite the herc /hh-60 ramps .
The B-52 at mco is at the junction of airport access rd and the freeway that runs across the north of the airport and is accessable from the airport service road that runs parrelel to it how exactly this is done i am not sure looking on google things have certainly changed since i was last there

In 2007 I got some reasonable shots from the beach, I kept a low profile and wasn't bothered by anybody, good views of the runway from this area.

Patrick is great, the lay by is easy to find and very obvious. Don't forget the Titusville museum if you are over Patrick way on.

Melbourne can also be worth a look too but it's a bit further south. Recommend Andy Marden's excellent US Mil out of service book for the locations of stuff.

Titusville museum is my usual haunt (Fiance lives in Melbourne) I'm tempted by the book ;)
