FRA Photo Positions? Observation Decks?

Thu Oct 25, 2001 9:05 pm


Has anyone information if the observation decks at FRA have reopened yet?

An other question concerning the photo points: Do I need a ladder for the positions near the western runway? And what lenses would you recommend to make good shots from there (minimum requirements)?

Thanks in advance!

both observation decks are CLOSED!
A ladder would be nice in case you do not get the best position there. For take-offs from 18W you will need about 100mm for a 747 to get it full-framed.

See my website (you can find it in my profile) for more information about FRA Spotting and let me know if you have more specific questions.

btw: when are you going to come?
