Dublin Airport Spotting Help Needed

Mon Aug 01, 2011 12:45 pm

HELLO ALL
Over the next few weeks I will be travelling to Dublin to get some pictures of aircraft to put on the internet,
and I will be staying for a day.
I will leave my house at 11.00 and leave the airport at 17.00.
I have a list of planes that I would like to catch through my lens but I don't know when they will fly into Dublin.
so I was hoping you guys could help me.

These are my planes on my list:

-Aer Lingus retro A320
-Norwegian 737
-SAS MD-80
-Air Southwest Dash 8
-Flybe any
-U.S. Airways 767-200
-American Airlines 767 or 757
-Delta 767 or A330
-United/Continental 757
-Air Transat A310-A330
-Air France 747F-777F
-Germanwings A319
-Lufthansa any
-Iberia any
-Swiss any

ALSO ANY SPECIAL CHARTER PLANES ARRIVING

I know its a long list but I would like to try and get some of them as I am limited to how often I can go to Dublin airport
and Thank You to any info received. I just need to know which days of the week the airlines fly them in that's all!
Any comments and advice always appreciated

Happy Flighting!

You can add Turkish to that list too, with a 321.

Where will you spot from? I had some OK luck on the garage, but nothing for Anet quality wise. You need over a 200MM for that area I think.

I have some really cool indoor photos from the new Terminal at Dublin that I should get around to editing / uploading soon. It looks like they did a great job. I was there for a 5 hour layover, and the concessions are pretty good. The traditional irish breakfast was very nice for airport food!

You need to walk (or get a bus) out to runway 28/10, which is normally the primary landing runway.

You do have to be very careful though of heat-haze at DUB in summer!

I will be spotting on the old airport road on a Saturday over the next few weeks. That Irish breakfast sounds good though and I have flown with EI into the new terminal and it does look very good I do admit!
Although their is another plane i would like to add to my list of planes and that is the etihad a330 I'm not sure when they fly into DUB. I will be using my canon 300d with my 70-300MM lens mainly. And lastly I did not know Dublin oils even have a heat haze!
Thanks fir any more help I really want to get that us airways 767!

For info, Air Canada will be using a B777-200LR on DUB-YYZ until 8 August. Something a bit different for DUB.
