The best place to spot and take pictures was the central point of the bay, near the hotels and on the beach. The best option was probably to take a room on one the highest floors of the hotels with bay view, although backlight was a factor during parts of the show. At the airport, access to all aircraft was free of obstacles, except for the F-16s and A-10s that were at the other side of the public fence, but with a good chance to take pictures. Again, at the airport sometimes you found the sun at the back of the aircraft, but in most of the cases the light on your side. The access fee for the airport static display was about 200 pesos and the air show over the bay was free.
