Spotting at the Superbowl 2009 – Tampa
Are you planning on going to Tampa for the Superbowl? If so, you’ll be in for a treat with the hundreds of biz movements expected, on top of the usual airliners and good weather.
The official stance on spotters at Tampa for the Superbowl is that you’re welcome to be there! What a refreshing change! Here are the rules, kindly provided for all you spotters by Mike Greenway via Geoff Cook:
Spotters are encouraged to congregate on the roof of the economy car park on the south side of the airport. This offers fantastic views over the ramps where all the biz jets will be, and also has views of other movements.The car park costs $9 a day to use, and has toilet facilities, and a free shuttle to the terminal.
If you are attending, you are encouraged to contact Community Relations Coordinator Kelly Figley on KFigley@TampaAirport.com, with names and your passport or driving license number, who will pass on the details to the police.
As an extra note, aircraft are expected to stop flying during the game. Any arrivals after this time are likely to use nearby St. Petersburg airport, so you may wish to head over there for some more spotting.
