LAS spotting question

Wed Mar 01, 2017 5:04 pm

Hey all,
I'm going to be in the Las Vegas area later this week. Two years ago I took some shots from a parking garage (don't remember which one) at LAS that turned out okay, with aircraft taking off northbound in front of the city skyline. There were some other spotters there at the time and it seemed to be relatively accepted practice to do this. My question is, is this still considered an okay place to take photographs by the airport authorities? I know parking garages are sometimes considered a bit questionable.

Thanks!

I was there a little over a year ago, and spent a couple of hours photographing from the parking deck. I think the authorities are fine with photographers out there, Airport Ops drove past me at one point, and I haven't heard of any issues since my visit. You should be fine.

It's fine, I was most recently up there on Monday. No issues with the bicycle cops.
