Spotting At Cairo Int'l?

Tue May 04, 2004 8:09 am

Hey guys,

I am going to be taking a trip to Egypt in the summer and I thought this would be a good oppertunity to photograph some classics. I have been going to Cairo every summer for the last 10 years as I have family there. I checked out the airport last summer and found a great spotting location at a gas station. Spent about 10 mins there and managed to see a Saudi 743, Lybian A300, Lufthansa A343....etc. Didn't manage to get any regs. or photos out of fear of being arrested.

I know Horus might be able to help me out here. Do you think that it would be unwise to take photos at the airport, considering the bad political situation? If it's possible we can meet up there and do some spotting! Any information would be great! Smile Smile

Never tell your girlfriend about all the 'action' you're getting at the airport - only photogs understand that.
