BRU to help out spotters

Wed Feb 15, 2017 7:33 pm

It would appear BRU wants to be more welcoming to spotters, good to know for next time I visit. Plans are to have two spotter sites on either end of runway 01/19. ... ver-avions

Brussels Airport will build 2 dedicated spotter areas!

Wed Feb 15, 2017 7:36 pm

Great news for Brussels spotters fans!

Since there are currently no regulated locations for spotters in the municipalities around the airport, Brussels Airport has, in consultation with spotters and neighbouring municipalities, looked for nearby places that meet both the wishes of the spotters and the provisions for security and safety. Brussels Airport has identified two places where a spotter area can and will be built. Brussels Airport Company will shortly submit a permit application and, if the application is successful, the construction of the spotter places can begin this year.

Excellent idea! Let's hope many other airports follow suit!

At Dublin, there is a very good spot beside the current 28 (which will become 28L in a few years' time); the local authorities have planned for a new facility for the new runway, but we're trying to get them to locate this south of (rather than north of) the new runway, for photography reasons.
