    Hi there

    A quick question. As I only have early morning in Madrid before my flight leaves, is this somewhere you can take photos in the morning, or only afternoon?

    Cheers
    Mark

    The road is called "Calle de Zaorejas" which leads to the SHS Hotel Aeropuerto. Maybe this hotel has a shuttle bus. If not take the free shuttle bus to the Hotel Auditorium. The bus driver is not interested if you have a reservation, key for the hotel. Its a ten minutes foot walk to the location mentioned above.

    This is what you will expect

    No either the Hotel shuttle buses or the subway to the mound


    There are no parking locations next to the mounds. You have to park at the town.

    You can but with a lack of quality and a lot of heat haze. So I recommend the RWY 33L location for the flights from South America

    Can you get pictures of Avianca/LAN when they land from the mound or are they too far away?

    Madrid Barajas spotting tips

    All,

    I'm off to Madrid for a cheeky day on Weds 7th March and am looking for some tips and pointers to make the most of my trip. It appears, the majority of the time they use runway 33's for landings and 36 for departures. My main aim of the trip is to catch the various LANs, Aeromexico, Avianca and Aerolineas. I've looked at the arrivals and these appear to arrive between 11 & 14.30, therefore my plan was to shoot arrivals until then and head to the mound until sunset.

    A couple of questions:

    Do I need a car?
    Can you rent bicycles in the airport?
    Is there parking at the mounds or do I park in the town of Barajas and walk?
    Can you get pictures of Avianca/LAN when they land from the mound or are they too far away?

    Any help would be really appreciated. Obviously, if there are any locals around that could escort me around that would be awesome. I'll even treat them to lunch!

    Thanks in advance.
Working...
