(MH/hpl) Due to construction work near Findel airport, plane spotting has recently been somewhat more difficult for aviation enthusiasts as a prime viewing spot currently offers only a restricted view of the runways.

Following the constant growth of the Cargocenter, a new warehouse is being built to store oversized objects. As a result, a fence temporarily blocks the view and makes several parking spots unavailable to the public.

As plane spotting has become increasingly popular among aviation enthusiasts and hobby photographers, many European airports offer runway viewing points, allowing an unrestricted view of planes during landing and takeoff.

The viewing point at Findel airport can be found just behind the roundabout near the Cargocenter in Senningerberg. Only a few metres away from the runway, it is the best spot to take photos of the planes that thunder down the runways on a daily basis. Another plus are the many parking spots that can be found at the site.

Luxair has confirmed that the construction works will be finished by the end of September.
