      Actually, I believe these folks might be Mennoites, as Amish would probably not be caught near an airport.

      You know, this might be an answer to our spotting problems..dress as Mennoites. I don't believe that local Police would see us as threats dressed in such garb . Though taking a camera along might spoil the effect.

      Great pic though.......

            They're Amish. Full (very short!) story here.

            "It is permissible for an Amish person to use modern transportation provided that he does not personally own or operate the equipment. Some travel has become a necessity as growing communities have had to move westward in order to acquire additional farmland for young couples. Some of the newest communities are in Utah."

              I was in Atlanta once and saw an Amish person getting his luggage from an ASA flight. That really surprised me.

                Did it surprise you that he was at an airport or that he had luggage. I mean seriously they wear the same thing.

                  Who is an Amish person?

                  :realizes he should have paid more attention in history class:

                  :also realizes that history is very boring, so quits blaming himself:

                    Don't know if they are in other countries but in the US they are people that like to live a simple life away from technology.
