    KYIV Spotting Assistance


    I am planning a trip to Kyiv in the coming months and I would like some advice on whether or not the airports are spotter friendly or not. Are there any particular areas which are popular with local spotters?

    I do not mind going to either of the main airports in the city, but if I could get any military aircraft that would be a bonus. Would really appreciate any assistance if anyone has been.

  • Paris - CDG Spotting questions

    Hello everyone,
    I will be visiting at Paris from Israel between the 18th-26th of August. I am interested on going spotting for a day when I am in Paris but as I see it is very complicated to get around to the good locations that I am interested in. If anyone reading this would like to come on a spotting day with me and show around the cool spots of CDG I would be more than thrilled to go around with you.

    Also, if anyone can help explain to me how I can get around to some good spots without a car that would be appreciated too

    You can find me on facebook, my name is Liav Zimelman,

    Thanks so much for whoever can help!

    Unknown Aircraft

    A few weeks ago I took some pictures with my camera outside. I randomly took a picture of a plane at something around 10.000 Meters. I excuse the bad picture quality because I took the picture without a tripod.
    At the first moment when I looked at it I assumed that it has to be a Lockheed C-5 Galaxy but the plane has got no winglets and the whole shape (wings etc.) is different. Thanks for your help!

  • An evening "bird watching" @ STN

    On Friday last week, I finally had opportunity to visit my local airport (EGSS/STN) for a bit of "BIG Bird Watching". Unless I'm doing it from my pc in the virtual sense, I don't really go into the sort of detail like an average spotter does, where they have goals to see, log, and photograph every plane in an airline's fleet. - NO! I'm just a casual spotter who enjoys watching the aircraft movement and occasionally likes to lookup where an aircraft has been to.. the first part of my visit I spent between 7:30-8:00pm there and watched a german-wings arrival splitting the regular easyjet/ryanair movements. There was an air-atlas plane due to go but I didn't see this on my first visit. Returning later my patience throughout the first fifteen minutes after 9pm was rewarded as I watched a familiar looking easyjet craft taxi onto Rwy23...Internet research later confirms that it was indeed reg no: G-ZAPX, the titan-air wet-lease boeing 757, flying easyjet colors. He was actually ...

  • Nikon D80 settings for the mound

    Hey guys,

    I am an amateur just starting out in spotting at sydney YSSY. I Have my Scanner and a Nikon D80 with a 70-300mm lens. I was wondering if anyone could advise me on the settings i could use when shooting at the mound? I've tried once but I didn't center the images and got backlighting on aircraft (rookie mistakes

    Someone (Ryan) said to use my shutter speed a stop and a third above the focal length. Someone else they use other settings and achieve great results.

    So any help as to the settings I should use would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks very much,

    Ian Irwin

  • YVR Trip on 3/21/09 (help from locals?)

    I am making my first trip up to YVR tomorrow morning to do some spotting from SEA. The opportunity came up kinda of last minute. I've had a bit of trouble locating spotting directions and locals who can help direct me(I will have a car). If any locals are out there it'd be great to get your advice. I'd prefer not to spot/park somewhere that is frowned upon and mess things up. Also, I've gathered that a larger ladder isn't need - nothing more than a step-stool. Anyone confirm/deny this?
    Hope I can get some last minute help on this! PM me or reply please!
    Thanks in advance
