I will be in MAD in a conference in late September and am currently thinking to arrive one day earlier do do some photography at Barajas. Thanks to the search function I found a description of a good place:
but was wondering about two things:
1) How is the situation now in Madrid after the terrorist attacks earlier this year? Does the police cause headache to people standing at the airport fence and taking photos or is this still OK? I also read somewhere that this "Puente de Barajas site" is closed now?
2) As I understand the spot mentioned above is/was good for taxi pictures. Is it also possible from any place to get a good view on the action, i.e. arcraft taking off or landing? NB I will have no car ...
