hey, to reach flyinn, you leave the airport and make a right turn on the main road, and it will curve around the 36R area and then parallel 36L. Keep going for another 1 km after you cross 36L and u will reach a small traffic light, make a left turn at this point and flyinn is the large building on the left. There is underground parking avaiable, for free.
this position you can see some great ramp action as well as touchdowns etc, although if you are going now, unfortunately the prevailing winds are southerly due to the Lodos weather pattern, so i hope you get some action.
Don't worry about the police, they will stare, if they approach you, as soon as you speak english they will lighten up and tell them you work for an international aviation newspaper...they will let you alone..... Just don't aim your camera at the guard posts on the airport perimeter. The colocation of the airbase isnt as security anal anymore, it's been downgraded, and now there is an aviation museum there too, you can see it on the right as you drive towards the 36R place. The museum has a lot of old a/c and an istanbul airlines Caravelle.
Anything else ya need like a map or something lemme know ill see if i can point things out on it.
p.s when you coming over?
