In late April/early May I'll go on holiday to the Cinque Terre coast in SW Italy. I'm thinking of driving there and back by car from Holland in a couple of days, probably through Southern Germany, Switzerland or Western Austria one way and the other way through the Cote d'Azur and Eastern France.
I'm looking for information on photo spots/security issues for the following places on the Italian/French coast in particular:
Imperia heliport (location?)
I'd also appreciate tips on your favourite civil or military airfields for photography (considering photo spots, scenery, security issues, and air traffic), or aviation museums, that you think make easy and worthwile stops for a few hours in S Germany, Switzerland, W Austria, N Italy, and E France.
I don't need widebodies - anything beyond a general aviation airfield is nice if gets decent air traffic and photo opportunities are OK.
Since this is so broad, I haven't done much searching yet - I hope you can get me started.
