Where are the good spots for planespotting in Denver, Orlando, and Santa Ana?
Denver is in the middle of nowhere, so I'll have to find which runways they are using and google maps a nearby road. I hear that the Conoco station is good for some flights (737 and the smaller airbuses, ie Frontier). Orlando most approaches come from the north, any good spots? Anywhere else to look? Santa Ana would probably be the easiest, but I know they have to gain altitude quickly for the jets, so someplace close would be best. How about approaches?

At MCO there are both north and south boundary roads you should be able to get close on -- south is pretty barren, north go off Semoran to the access road north of the Bee Line.
In Orlando, Try the Red lot.
At Santa Ana (John Wayne Airport) I used to spot from inside the parking garages but one time security didn't like me standing there and asked me to watch the planes from inside the airport, and that was before 9/11. The view from those garages is perfect though. A lot of times there are large jets parked right in front of the garage but you are high enough to see the arrivals and departures behind them. You can probably get away with it for several minutes at least.
