  • Crete Heraklion spotting.

    Following my recent holiday in Crete I found some spots where pics of approach to runway 27 can be taken without hassle from officialdom.
    The map picture shows access points and locations for spotting. The public beach is further from the approach path than the cafe/restaurant area. I didn't get any shots from the restaurant area ( we were eating and the missus wasn't too pleased with me grabbing a camera during the meal !!! )but aircraft were considerably closer than from the public beach.

    MAP PICTURE


    The Aegean 737 shot was taken from the bar on the public beach. Its a crap pic as I was too late in the day for decent photography but it shows the kind of angle that you get. I was using a 70-300 zoom and the pic is about a 50% crop from the original. Best time of day would be between 1000 and 1600 hrs.

    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !
