I am not a spotter (I don't have the equipment, unfortunately) but today I decided to head down to BCN
to check out the spotter locations around the airport and to see what I could get with my compact CANON IXUS 85 IS
I think the camera is quite good and I've seen I can get some decent photos, unfortunately at high speeds 1/1500 and high ISOs (1600), the pictures become all blurry. I don't know if this is a limitation of the cam itself or if I am doing something wrong (most likely).
This is what I saw today at the airport:
The park near the threshold of 25R. A great place to "relax" as you can see.
A 747. I don't know the airline. Perhaps someone can help. All blurry as I said:
At this point a Transavia went around and the A320 behind switched to 25L about halfway into the approach. I guess something happened on the runway. Here the Transavia going around:
Dassault Falcon 900EX:
Air Nostrum CRJ-200ER:
Air Europa Boeing 737-85P:
Vueling Airbus A320-214:
Another Air Nostrum CRJ-200ER:
Air France Airbus A320-211:
Alitalia Airbus A319-112:
TAP Airbus A320-214:
Portugalia - CRJXX? - help needed:
And that's it!
I also saw a PIA plane (A310 I think) I didn't know PIA flew to BCN
. Perhaps it was a charter or a diversion.
