Hi,
just wondering if there are any spotters from the Vendee region of France or people have been spotting there?Apart from Nantes,are they any decent airports to go spotting to?And what sort of overflights do you get there ie airline,route etc
Thanks,Alex

A bit too far for me, I'm at the other side of France, in Savoie.
Right now, I'm in my usual spotting position, i.e. at work  Sad, my desk facing the runway of Chambery's airport 400 meters in front of me. Damn rain and fog, I can't see the planes today (though I hear them quite well)

I see in your profile that you live in UK.Are you coming in France for Holidays ? (good choice  Big thumbs up )

I have been to Dieppe about 30 times in my life and the Vendee about 5 times.I remember seeing lots of contrails over the Vendee before I was into planes.
