I'm planning a trip to CPH at the beginning of October. I'll be travelling by easyjet and don't envisage using a car - I've found reference to the bus routes and spotting places, but what I don't know is - do I need a ladder??

I've seen some photos where you can see the top of a fence in the foreground, but more importantly do you need a 3 or 5 step ladder anyway at any of the usual places.

One of main major targets is the air greenland A330 which I'll need to get as it starts its take off run. Hope I'll get the Ethiopian and the Kish too!

Many Thanks,

Ray

"do I need a ladder??"
Some spots require a ladder but security will not allow you to use one.

"do you need a 3 or 5 step"
3 step, but you won't be using it for long (but perhaps long enough to catch what you want?!), se above answer.

"One of main major targets is the air greenland A330"
Should be departing at about 9:30-10am, if 04L Kystvejen for climbout or St. Magleby for Lineup. If 22R no easy way to get it with the sun in your back.

Good luck and have fun in Copenhagen

Air Greenland can be shot from Terminal 3 windows around 930am-10am. If you arrive on the first Easyjet you may just make it.

The one below was taken airside but under the windows of the gate so it should look something like this.

Hi there,

You can check out my spottinginfo of Copenhagen on my site:
www.geocities.com/scandpix

Don't have too big expectations about the Greenlandair if you want it on the takeoff roll, your best chance is on climbout from 04R, you will be standing at Kystvejen then. But if it departs on 22R it will be really hard to get.

Hi

If you think of this fence, then you can live without a ladder. It's at the place called Flyvergrillen. Check Zanders site for location.

Regarding Flyvergrillen
The sun doesn't get any good until ~ 4-5pm this time of the year, in the winter i don't think the sun is any good at all during the entire day. Not 100% sure about the last part tho.

The problem with Flyvergrillen is that it doesn't open until 10.30,
Air Greenland departs 9.15 that's why you can't shoot when it departs 22R.

Is it not possible to get up to the viewing deck when the Flyvergrillen itself is closed? I have been there once (in the afternoon), but I wasn't paying attention to see if there was a gate or not.

Anyway, I plan to stay in Copenhagen for a few days next month and will of course do some spotting if weather allows.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy I still haven't tried any of the other spotting places besides Flyvergrillen.

Regards,
Asgeir

There is a gate...you can stand at the parking lot too but then you have to stand on a ladder.
