Good morning guys!

In a few weeks I will fly to Boston and I would enjoy to go spotting there.
I found this picture here on Airliners.net and was speechless!
http://www.airliners.net/photo/Briti...irways/Boeing-777-236-ER/1030604/L

I love this location and I think I found it in Google Earth, but I´m not sure....
Can you help and tell me, where I can find this location?
When you have other locations, don´t hesitate to post it here  

Kind regards
Dominik

Awesome classic photo. I don't think you will be able to duplicate this exact shot though. Even if you had a boat, there is a hill in the way now that obscures the view to the east for an aircraft such as this that is facing west turning on to RWY 4R or taxing onto 9 for departure.

You can check out Dan V's site for some locations and info:

BA 777 departs everyday around 0800-0835 or so. If it was me, I would shoot / hope for something like this:

Departing RWY 27 (rare this time of year, but not impossible.

Departing RWY 22R at dusk (a little more likely, and there are at least three locations public side to get an excellent shot against the city, this likely from Constitution Beach)

If you really want that morning 777 departure, you can get that too departing 22R. I have one of those, with the city in the background but I haven't uploaded to here yet.

What about bayswater street park? It's not far from Saratoga street bridge, just about 1000 ft as the crow flies from the threshold of 22R/L    and seems like it would offer some really awesome views of 22R/22L landings and departures? Anyone been there?

Just there the other day for the morning BA departure. (Full disclosure, we did get questioned by the police).

These were likely taken from Bayswater St. I've been meaning to do it myself actually. I will one day, but it likely looks better with super telephoto's used here for the "compression" and the outbound delays are significantly less than what they used to be, for quite a few reasons. Vasco's maybe taken from Bayswater or the beach, they are basically very close to each other anyway.

I wouldn't have put it quite that way, but yes...there are issues with taking photos from B roof, and other Massport property.

And where can that be obtained? I likely will visit a friend soon near Hartford, I would make the drive to Boston, if good spotting was available. I haven't been there since 1997.

Dominik, just a quick question. What's your longest focal length, so we can point you towards the right spots.

Quoting RonS (Reply 3):
Vasco's maybe taken from Bayswater

wow, that's a classic one, totally forgot all about it. This was taken with my old 170-500 mm lens back in the days.
Bayswater was awesome for those 22R line up shots....

Yeah! I don't know if it just hasn't been done in a while or the airport really has changed. I'm thinking the later, that the installation of the midfield taxiway, improvements in departure spacing on the ATC side, and that I believe there are less flights carrying more people, these lineups in the early evening are more rare that in times past. Although, at some point I'm going to try for one!

Good evening all,

i was just looking in Google Earth for Bostons Airport and then i found a parking level on Terminal B:

http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/232/bos1o.jpg

Question: Is this parking level only for staff members or is it for tourists, travelers, etc. too?
I think from there you can get nice shots in the evening, can´t you?

Regards
