|Monthly Photo Shoot @||Brisbane Airport, Plane Spotting|
|Date||Sunday 20 June 2021|
|Meet Time||2:00pm till Dark?|
|Meet at||“The Loop” Plane spotting parking area. This is considered to be one of the premium sites to photograph aircraft in Australia|
|Shooting||This is a well known plane spotting area at Brisbane Airport, it provides good coverage of aircraft landing and taking off and of aircraft moving to the new runway.
Sunday between 2 and 5 pm are pretty busy so you will see plenty of action
|Challenge||Don’t be put off if you are not interested in “Planes” This is a skill level we have not yet used, and getting focus etc on a fast moving object is a challenge.
You may even see some exotic airline brands.
The thrill is in the capture!
|Getting there||Take airport drive to the terminal, and keep in the right hand lane, Just before the drop off area turn left into Drylander Rd go under the tunnel and then right into Acacia St the “Loop is at the end of the Street. See attached Map|
|Notes||This location is at the airport, but a fair distance from the terminal, you will need Transport. There is a 3 metre fence surrounding the loop and you are required to keep 3 m away from the fence so bring a ladder, step or stool to stand on. There is a hardstand on which to set ladders or stools|
|Comments||The closest toilet facilities are in the terminal and there is no drinking water.
Parking may be a problem so I suggest Carpooling if possible.
|Safety||There are no safety issues|
