This show looks pretty good, and the statics look very impressive. I've never gone to this one, so anyone that has gone before...is the lighting good for photography, and also, assuming the statics mostly show up on Friday, are there good spots I can go to catch the arrivals? Thanks guys as always.

Never fully trust the website and the static list, that has been the same list on the website since 2009, it has never changed lol. The lighting isn’t the greatest, you face west during the show, the first couple of hours of the show aren’t bad but after 2pm it gets rough. There is a couple spots to spot arrivals I’ll post a picture later of where majority of people i know have gone in the past.

Here’s where people have spotted in the past, but with possible construction at the airport i cannot say for sure if these spots will be accessible at the time of the show
