I will be in Australia from mid Oct till mid Nov,
I will be in SYD, OOL, CNS, AYQ, ASP, MEL for certain as I have to take a plane in all of these airports.
Can you help me by telling me where are the places to spot at these airports, inside the terminal? On a terrace? By car around the airport?
Everything is welcome as it will be my first time downunder and I don't know any of the airports.
As the menu says, they have guides to all sorts of things including radio frequencies, runway info, Navaids, sydney ATC, airlines, and most importantly, a viewing spots guide. There's also a message board. Quite a few A.net members contribute there.
There are a few good places for spotting at SYD but one of the best is right under the 16R approach path just outside the perimeter fence (if the wind is right). There, you'll get 747s screaming right over your head on finals. Pretty fun...
