Hey guys. Looks like I might be heading to Barcelona, Spain for 3 days during my 10 day UK trip. I may just be doing the tourist thing all three days but I might be able to convince my party to let me visit Barcelona airport for a bit of time during those 3 days to do a bit of shooting. Can anyone help me with spotting info at Barcelona, just in case I do convince them. Thanks

P.S. What is the drinking age in Spain?

Hi Justin,

Spotting is good in Barcelona but it used to be better, there are two runways for arrivals now, so it might be best to catch some local spotters on the spot who can help you out with which one is used for what flights. The famous line-up shots are no longer possible with all the new fences and stuff. But perhaps some of the locals know more as it has been some time I've been there...

Also, if you go there, make sure to go out spotting on a Saturday, that's when all the Russian stuff arrives.

Unfortunately looks like we're staying Tuesday-Thursday or Friday. So no Saturday is available for me.

Haha I gotcha. Just curious. I'm no alcoholic by any means but one of the perks of this trip is getting to legally drink (I'm 18) in the UK and apparently Spain since I can't buy alcohol here in the states for another 3 years.


Thanks Giovanni!


If any locals could shed some light on the spotting, that would be great. Thanks

Justin

Not sure, probably 16 or 18... you should do fine...  Smile


For the flights, you can check the AENA website (www.aena.es). Traffic is more or less stable, so if you look a week in advice, you've got an idea of what to expect. Tuesdays used to be good as well in the past, with some Tupolevs.

Justin,

Visit this page where you will find locations: http://www.aire.org/rnac/barcelona/index_eng.htm

If you go in weekend, maybe you will find some of the locals.

Regarding the age of drinking, depending on the "Comunidad Autónoma" (Madrid, Catalunya, Baleares etc etc etc is 16 or 18...but normally they don't ask for ID, it is not like in the States  Smile

Brgrds,

DARIO
