Planespotting at GIB

Gibraltar is often considered Europe’s ‘most dangerous airport’. The runway extends out into the sea and is bordered to the south by the Rock, which generates difficult wind conditions; plus there’s a road across it to the Spanish border! However, this does mean you can get really close for some planespotting, so that’s exactly what I did.

I also captured a couple of landings as video…

Here’s the June 1st British Airways BA490 arriving from Heathrow; flown by G-EUYC
