Just for the info - rather unusual case for Russia - airport orginized free spotting for the whole local photographer's community. 92 spotters registered but only about 60 participated (May 22 was the working day).
Domodedovo is the only private airport at Moscow area and their reason are obvious - they decided to make at as informational event. And it had worked - at least 3 TV channels (two national) made reports on event. So, Domodedovo got additional advertizing and we got sudden freedom and good abilities to make spotting without hide on bushes and neighbouring forests from police and aviation security.
Hope they will continue their practice - at least as they promised.
I hope there will be some shots at Airliners.Net soon - they are upcoming. For your attention I'd like to present pictures of not A.Net standards - it just a brief report on event. http://aviaforum.ru/showthread.php?t=15000
It is with Russian comments, but I hope photos will explain you the atmosthere. And please - ask me any questions if you whant to know more.

Great to see you have that opportunity, Fyodor. Thank you for posting the link to the photos. Some great shots, lots of variety of planes, and good close-ups. It's worth a trip from the states for a day like that. And a lot of ladies out there, too, although the one looks like she's more interested in flowers.

Quoting FYODOR (Reply 8): As I talked to DME people they plan to hold some more events like this. So, as soon as I get dates - I'll post the message regarding the case and you probably will be able to attend.
Just what I wanted to ask .
