A public planespotting site has been opened at Vilnius Airport.
A convenient location for the site, which is raised above the ground, is set up next to the Salininkai Gardens, right behind the fence of Vilnius Airport, where everyone can enter. The location of the site was chosen considering both the technical capabilities and the best view for its visitors as airplanes ascend and descend very close to the site and the runway of the airport is visible very clearly.
Next to this plane spotting site, the Vilnius City Municipality will also set up a children's playground.
The airport plane spotting site access has been included in the overall airport security system, will be constantly monitored by cameras for the safety of the visitors themselves, and will be supervised by regular security patrols.
The English term planespotting refers to the hobby of watching airplanes taking off, landing or taxiing on the ground. The global phenomenon has long attracted not only aspiring people looking for extraordinary views and observing planes without a purpose, but also professional aviation enthusiasts or photographers. The latter can spend a long time on the spot, trying to capture the most interesting moment and then to share it with their peers and exchange information.
