I take it this is in the secure area you'll need a boarding pass to enter? Perhaps a comment to the fact, on the cache page would help clarify that for potential seekers.

An airport series sounds interesting, especially for those who do a a bit of flying. Of course, it would be more accessible if it was in an "open" area of the airport. I might look at doing ones for BWI, DCA, and IAD - all near home.

I see nothing to prevent me from approving it, but I'm sure visits will be more limited than normal.

Happy Trails!



Description   EN   

There's not much caching you can do while flying (with a few notable exceptions), so I thought I'd list this quick virtual in Albquerque's Terminal A, especially since it took me just about forever to get my GPSr to lock in on coordinates.  The password is the astronomically-related term you see in big letters on the hanger that is visible as you look out the window (just the first word).  It's capitalized as it is written on the hanger.

Found with the rest of TeamABC on Air-Show day at ABQ! I thought about grabbing this one when we arrived but forgot about it in the rush of meeting family, getting luggage and all that. On the way out I did not forget! We were departing from A10 so I took a few minutes to hang out in A1 while the family prepared to fly in the nearby facilities. Cool I didn't even need to have the GPSR acquire satellites as I saw what I needed pretty quickly. In fact, I had seen it when dropping off the rental car and then waiting for the airport shuttle. We got to see a few World War 2 prop-planes motor by - a bomber, figher and what looked like an old crop-duster. 

Unfortunately the airshow delayed our departure by 45 minutes but we did get to watch the B2 "Stealth" bomber do a few loops and fly-bys while taxiing to take-off. That was actually very cool. The thing was nearly invisible with Sandia at its back. Thanks for the bonus cache to keep my vacation caching streak going!

This gives cachers something to do during long waits in an airport.

There's a similar GC virtual in the ORD terminal (GC5165) and one in the ATL parking garage (GCGFDE) for those who travel.  I'd like to encounter others too!
