Spotting/Photography In Argentina/Peru/Uruguay

Tue Oct 11, 2005 1:54 pm

What/where are the spotting facilities at EZE/AEP/IGU/MVD/LIM/CUZ like? It's my first time in South America and I'm looking forward to being able to do some spotting in between flights and sightseeing. I know there are a few locals here on A.net.
Flown to 120 Airports in 44 Countries on 73 Operators. Visited 55 Countries and counting. Wanderlust is like Syphilis, once you have the itch it's too late for treatment.

About MVD, I have been there but I didn't go to the airport...not very good weather and not many traffic...

In AEP, you will not have problems to find a spot place...The fence, at least when I went last year, was really small and I didn't have many problems with security.

With a 100mm lenses it is enough Big grin

Correct, at AEP it is very easy to take pics. On Sundays you will see hundreds of people just hanging around the airport, taking their kids to see planes come and go, so spotters are practically unnoticed. Now that I have a job I can't go as often as I would like to, but until recently I would go at least once a week and just shoot. The only problem is that you won't have too much variety of aircrafts or airlines, but every now and then you find surprises such as the following

For me almost every registration I photograph in South America I will not have seen before so not too much problem there...

Is there a map of AEP around that has the best spots marked??

Sorry, could not find one, but you can take pictures from many different points. I would contact other Arg spotters (Baires Aviation Photography) to get more and better info on this
