Photo-Gallery: Planespotting at Domodedovo airport, Moscow
Right after attending the Etihad Airbus A380 presentation in Hamburg, I flew to Moscow's Domodedovo airport.
This was to be no ordinary arrival, since, once I cleared passport control and customs, a representative of Domodedovo airport administration picked me up and led me to join a group of Russian planespotters that were enjoying one of the "planespotting days" that the airport organizes regularly.
I have written earlier in this blog (actually on my very first Allplane post, back in 2009!) why I consider Moscow, and Domodedovo in particular, one of the most exciting places for planespotting: the diversity of airlines and aircraft types is, simply, difficult to rival.
I would like to thank you the organizers of the DME planespotting day for the perfect organization and for giving us the chance to see the airport from an unusual angle.
They drove us successively, in one of the airport buses, to two privileged locations, next to the two runways that aircraft use to land and take-off (actually, as my Lufthansa flight arrived at DME when the planespotting was already ongoing, I am likely to have been "spotted" by the same photographers I later joined to do my own sahre of spotting!).
The weather and the atmosphere was great and we could see a good cross-section of the airlines and aircraft that visit Domodedovo airport regularly.
What follows is a selection of the hundreds of pictures I took during the event...
