Munich = Watching At

Wed Jun 06, 2007 4:16 am

I'll be in MUC in August (flying STN-TXL-MUC, 4 or so hours there, then MUC-DUS-STN).

Where would you recommend watching - I don't take photos or registrations - the movements? It must be quick and easy to reach.

Cheers.

Hi,
If the weather is nice take the train one stop towards Munich to the
"Besucher Park" or visitors center, follow the signs. There's a very
nice raised platform on a hill overlooking Terminal 1. If the weather
is bad try the observation deck on Terminal 2 but everything is behind
glass. Terminal 2 only deals with Star Alliance airlines.

The visitors center is at the X behind and to the right of the control tower.

On the subject of Munich, anyone know what the 4 757s are on the apron without engines? Was there briefly yesterday bud couldn't see much through the window in time.

It depends on the wind, the "Besucherpark" is ok, but bring binoculars. The viewing deck on T2 is decent for watching ground operations (unless you're there during the slow times of the day).

Whats the schedule of yours? Maybe the MUC people could have a mini-meeting?

As a matter of fact there's a Belair B757 in MUC right now, too. These B757s visit the LTU Technik in Hangar 3, and some of the VIM Airlines B757s are ex American Trans Air. Some are sitting here in MUC since April 2005 - just see the attached photos. All of them are quite a common sight here in MUC...

Are you sure about Belair 757 today ? We had 767 HB-ISE in for landing gear replacement, but that departed at 0600 local time today. For information, EI-LTO has also now arrived in full Air Bashkotostan colours, but is now in the Hangar on maintenance. EI-LTA will fly to MIA after maintenance.
