Where To Go This Weekend?

Tue Mar 22, 2005 10:51 pm

Ok title says it really. Bank holiday weekend in the UK means 3 days off and a good oportunity to get out of the country for some nice shots!

Question is: where?

We've done FRA, ZRH, AMS, DUS, CGN, PMI over the last year so would like to try somewhere else.

Have a list at the minute of CDG, LIS, MAD, MXP, VIE, PRG, BUD ... well its virtually endless.

Anyway, anybody give us any suggestions as good places to go that have some nice photo spots and hopefully good weather at the weekend.
We'll have a car wherever we go so can get out and about, just need some good shots Sat-Mon.

Don't know about you but as its Easter im hoping for 4 days off,not 3 !!! Big grin

I would go for MAD. Why not try BCN as well. I hear Friday & Saturday are good for Russian movements....

I myself will be (if the weather is good) going to some of the following. Popham , Elstree , Blackbush , Fairoaks , White Waltham. Not quite so exotic !!  Smile

Another weekend at MAN won't do you any harm. If your there tomorrow get a shot of the Alitalia A319 as thats what we're on!

Decided on MUC for the weekend which was one I left out of my original list so hoping for a good few days.
