  • Spotten FRA, June 4 & 5

    Hello all,

    Next week, I am planning to go to Frankfurt for two days of spotting, depending on weather off-course.
    After one in day in Dusseldorf (Thursday) we'll arrive at friday morning around 9am in FRA and we'll stay until saturday 6pm or so.

    I do have a hotel in mind already but every info about cheap hotels in de Frankfurt-area are welcome and also info about special arrivals and so on.....
    Maybe there are other guys with same plans for that weekend?

    regards
    Freek

    I will be at DUS on the 3rd and planning FRA either for the 29th, 30th or 6th.

    In FRA I would use the Inter City Hoitel Frankfurt Airport. It less than 5 minutes walking distance away from the spotting positions on the 25L/R.

      Let me guess; for the A380?
      I'll be there as well and probably we are not alone, I suppose...

            Extend the spotting a bit on the 4th, I will land in FRA with the MD11F around 10:15pm (if we are on time )

                  I just checked, I was on vacation when you took these shots. So it wasn't me

                  One more thing about the spotting, don't forget the spot at runway 18, nice spot there and you can see all the departures of runway 18 and during the evening the sun is just lovely there.

                  Hotels aren't too cheap in Frankfurt, depends if something special is going on. I usually stay at NH Hotels or Ibis or Mercure, they can be as low as 40 a night.

                  Have fun.

                    Too bad . I might have been on vacation as well when I took these shots.

                    For the spot at runway 18 you need something to stand on, otherwise you won't get clean shots. There is a possibility to stand on the railing, but I wouldn't advice to do so, though.

                      True about the 18, I was standing on that railing as I was too lazy to bring a ladder, but not a good idea especially during windy conditions. And it is difficult as the aircrafts pass you, then you have to twist your body quite a bit which makes it even more dangerous on the railing... And be prepared: if the weather is nice it will be packed there...
