Photography At Prague

Wed Mar 04, 2009 10:10 pm

Visiting Prague later this year, a few questions:

1. Can anyone on here recommend any locations within walking distance from the terminal for photography, and perhaps say what the stance of local police is towards photographers?

2. The big multi storey car park appears to offer good views of aircraft lining up for runway 24, is that correct, and would blatant displaying of camera remove any suspicion of being a car thief?

3. I believe the Air China cargo service is the only 747 that operates a scheduled service here, what time does it normally arrive/depart at, and which runway?

Many thanks  Smile

Haven't been to Prague since 2001 but as far as I can remember runway 06/24 is the primary runway, 13/31 is the secondary, the third one is closed. The final of runway 24 is within walking distance from the terminal. There's an excellent guide on http://planes.cz/lite/PRGspot.php
Some maintenance is expected this spring, I think rwy 06/24 will be closed for some weeks.

Almost, China Airlines (Taiwan) is the only 747 operator to PRG (by the way this is a cargo flt). 1245-1415, Thursday and Sunday.

The above mentioned site has also a 'coming soon to PRG' section and PRG's online flightinfo lists the cargo flights too, check http://www.prg.aero/en/site/informac...00&order=0&sort=asc&time=all&dest=

Thanks for that. The spotting guide lists the open top decks of the car parks, and a positive approach from police  Smile
