Spotting Ath ATH

Mon Sep 22, 2003 11:06 pm

I am going on a vacation to Athens from tomorrow on. Are there any good spotting locations around the airport? I will stay in Rafina.

I am not familliar with the ATH airport, however I would advise you to be cautious when spotting, since some time ago 2 dutch and a couple of english spotters were arrested by the greek police, because they made pictures of airplanes, and the police accused them of spying!

The English and Dutch spotters were not at a civil airport, but a military one, and they had been given two previous warnings about spotting at military fields.

As for spotting at ATH, I'm sure there are some places, since ppl have posted some good pics on Airliners.net...
