Open Spotting At Domodedovo

Mon May 28, 2007 5:36 am

Hi folks,

Just for the info - rather unusual case for Russia - airport orginized free spotting for the whole local photographer's community. 92 spotters registered but only about 60 participated (May 22 was the working day).

Domodedovo is the only private airport at Moscow area and their reason are obvious - they decided to make at as informational event. And it had worked - at least 3 TV channels (two national) made reports on event. So, Domodedovo got additional advertizing and we got sudden freedom  Wink and good abilities to make spotting without hide on bushes and neighbouring forests from police and aviation security.

Hope they will continue their practice - at least as they promised.

I hope there will be some shots at Airliners.Net soon - they are upcoming. For your attention I'd like to present pictures of not A.Net standards - it just a brief report on event.

It is with Russian comments, but I hope photos will explain you the atmosthere. And please - ask me any questions if you whant to know more.  Smile

Regards,

Fyodor

Any other old f*rts shaking their heads at spotters being more welcome in Moscow than New York (or anywhere else in the US) ?  brokenheart

Great to see. I hope that you can all now stand and watch planes and be able to wave at the security rather than having to run and hide.

How did it work on the day? Were you restricted to one part of the apron?

WoW, that was the coolest I've heard of. Wish they could have more open days at airports for pre-registered visitors.

Great to see you have that opportunity, Fyodor. Thank you for posting the link to the photos. Some great shots, lots of variety of planes, and good close-ups. It's worth a trip from the states for a day like that. And a lot of ladies out there, too, although the one looks like she's more interested in flowers.

As I talked to DME people they plan to hold some more events like this. So, as soon as I get dates - I'll post the message regarding the case and you probably will be able to attend.

I was wondering how long they let you out on the ramp?

I'll be on a guided tour to Moscow in July and these pics make me even more impatient Wink
