Brilliant shot, I am sooo jealous.
As to answer (once again) how it was done, in heavily controlled zones, to go to one airfield close to a large airport, the pathway is often... right above the large airport - flying right over the runways means you are unlikely to bother approaching or departing flights.
We have such a patchway here if we want to go to Lyons Bron from the east, we have to overfly LYS
runways at exactly 2000 Ft QNH.
Comments of those pictures (so you don't have to click on them
) will say : On our way from Lyon Bron back to Chambery. The exit path eastwards out of Bron takes us over LYS
, while flying at 2000 ft QNH. Flight Path out of Bron is usually right overhead LYS
, however, due to departure in progress (note the aircraft holding short of 08L), the ATC asked us to transit south of the installation, giving me a full overview opportunity.
does not really have the same traffic as LAX
... and at that time, I did not have the same camera as I have now.
I'm supposed to fly solo there tomorrow. Rhaa, how are you supposed to take a picture when holding your aircraft at a level altitude ?
