Plane Spotting - Orlando MCO

I'm taking a trip to Orlando in a few weeks and I'm meeting some friends there. It would be easiest if we all meet at the airport, but his flight comes in 2 hours after mine. So, I was thinking I could try to spend some time plane spotting around there and in general taking pictures around the airport. Will anyone be looking at me funny if I'm walking all over taking pictures of the architecture, planes, and other stuff for a few hours? Will I end up being backroomed and cavity searched by TSA?

I seriously doubt. I leave near LAX and every days there are tens if not hundreds of visiting photographers many from far far lands. But then you have nothing to hid, that is in case. Be ready not to give too many funny answers if some one looked at you funny! No have a good time and send some images to many of plane threads here like Panning an airplane.
Airport is not too big and I am not sure how the flight traffic would be at the time you being there but then interior architecture is contemporary and nice with a lot of good situations for picture taking. Airport is built like four crosses are each at the end of one limb of a giant X. There is monorails that make a nice photo scene, whether you are in one shooting outside or vice versa. There are few small lakes outside so must have some small birds too but then be careful of delicious FL crocodiles.
