Best Shots Of Your Airport

Sun May 20, 2001 3:16 am

Today I'm in the mood to start a frivolous topic. Please post a few of the best photographs that show your home airport and city. I don't mean photographs of a particular plane, but rather ones that show the landing approach or the city as a backdrop.

That said, here's some beauties from Lindbergh Field in San Diego.

This is the best one I could find of ATL. Unfortunately, the only way you can get a picture of an airplane landing at ATL with the city in view behind it is to actually get out on the runway area, which is impossible, unless you are authorized. Even if you work for one of the airlines, you can't get out there to get a good picture with the skyline of Atlanta in the background. I've seen a few in some books, but those are rare indeed.

Here are a few pictures of Brussels National Airport, EBBR, located in Belgium.

I live in Mechelen, a town 20km to the north of EBBR. So, every once in a while, I take my car and go to one of the runway ends, to take pictures.

Not many of Bristol, 2 in fact although i have some elsewhere (also i have some of the old terminal but naturally i can't be bothered to show you).

I had a great chance to get a shot of BRS from the air close up after taking off into a strong headwind we were still at about 800ft (and held altitude!) while carrying out a 180 degree turn and fly by of the airport.

What was more interesting is that if i had've got it you would have been able to see all the Cattle burning along the coast by my house  Smile

Oh wait, 2 more photo's have been added.

That makes 4 from BRS!
