That's from the carpark they were doing construction on last year!!!!!!! Seriously, I think it is carpark F(?). If you go out of the main terminal on ground level and turn left.......just keep walking until you see the carpark. Go up to the top. Great view and all to easy to shoot from.

PS-I live in ATL so take my directions with a grain of salt!!! Does anyone know if the construction is finished???

Thanks for making a post about my picture.

Shht, that's my hidden spot!!  Wink/being sarcastic No, Tu154m is right, I have taken that picture from car park F (now car park 6), from the top floor.

But it's not so easy anymore, they have recently installed a ceiling on the top floor and aluminium panels on the side. Anyway, you can still shot through the space between the panels (approx. 15 cm space).

By the way, I have some more cool pictures from that spot in the queue, watch out!

Thanks for the map, Unique!
I'll maybe be at ZRH from 29th to 31st May... I think I'd have to try this location...

Florian

Spotterboy, good luck! But please bear in mind that the sun is quite high at the end of may, the runway is 28/10 so almost straight to the West. If you have some means of transportation, I'd rather recommend the approach car park near Oberglatt (both morning and afternoon).
But as I said... good luck!

And Spotterboy, remember that the approaches near Oberglatt aren't that difficult by bus. Catch the bus (510 I think) from the airport terminal to Oberglatt village and it is just a 5 minute walk. Buses are hourly.

Thanks guys! But I won't need a bus to get to Oberglatt ... For 90% I'll be in Zurich this Saturday too... I'm out there with another spotter from INN , so we'd have a car.

Do anyone have heared about any special or not-sheudled adds to the flightplan at Zurich for Saturday?!?
Also, is there any good spotters website for ZRH (not the Unique site - also very good but...) where I can get special and mainentance flight planes, ect...???

Thanks very much!

regards, Flo

Flo, I can only recommend the airport web page to be checked at 6am as all these special flights are usually announced on short notice only!

You can also try http://www.jetstream.ch (present password a340)

Good luck and happy shooting! Cheers
