I've started to visit my local airport (Adelaide Intl, Australia) and only started bringing my camera along with me.
As a result of my father having to drive to the other side of the runway, I missed the only 'big' arrival that morning and I was quite disappointed as I woke up at 6 am just for that arrival.
I was just wondering how you guys determine which runway is in use? I have access to online wind forecasts but I have no clue how to use that data and figure out what runway to head to. I just want to be prepared next time I also have a scanner but we haven't figured how to operate the thing yet as it was bought second hand and did not come with a manual. Your help will be appreciated!
