Spotting At Heraklion/Greece?

Thu May 23, 2002 11:21 pm

Hi everybody!!

I´m travelling to the island of Crete next week.
Can anyone give me some special hints for spotting at Iraklion airport or even at Chania airport??
Are there special times when some special aircrafts arrive!!

Any hint will help me!!

Thanks a lot!!

I think there are some restrictions because the airport is half military...or is it Chania??? I cannot really recall but check it before making any attempts!

Lewis,

I recall both Chania and Iraklion being half military.

That's both true!

I have been at Heraklion and shot some pictures. I didn't get any trouble while I was at the tarmac. But on the other hand. There is a mountain at the approach route and Military police is driving around there looking for spotters (or spies)

I didn't get any trouble but be aware! A few people were kept in prison last year. 2 Dutch and 10 English I believe.
