I can also recommend this place for an evening meal. RWY 17 is the preferred runway for take-off in calm wind conditions. The centre spread was a beautiful sunny shot of an Ilyushin IL of the East German airline Interflug over the piano keys, taken from an elevated position against a backdrop of green trees, terracotta houses and a shimmering blue lake.

Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here At night the lights of Corfu town and the airport beacons may become visible before the runway. The image below was shot from the western end of the causeway in the glkr as the airplane turns through degrees for departure on runway It is noticeable that the Corfu Holiday Palace prices have increased significantly year on year and the Ariti represents better value based on a first stay experience there this year.
Around midday, the sun passes overhead and its time to move on to somewhere the light is behind you again. Charys required Address never made public.
There are hills to the left of final approach path, also Mouse Island just to the right, only ft. There are few visual cues available until turning chrats base leg.
Remain over the sea at all times on final approach to RWY Jeppesen chart for LGKR showing runway and ramp configuration. The terminal itself struggles to cope at peak times and ATC are stretched by a combination of more traffic and a lack of more modern infrastructure to help deal with it. Interactive airport briefing from pilots for pilots.
The image below was shot from the “corner on the hill” – a 3 minute walk down the road from the Royal Cafe deck. Please send us information about airports that are not yet featured in this database. This a narrow concrete wall where you can sit and watch the airplanes right under the final approach for runway Do not extend the downwind leg due to high terrain to the north.
The Lctr A circling procedure has the lowest minima. With anything airliner size this will involve rolling all the way to the end of the runway to the turning circle then back track 17 to exit to the ramp at the northern end. The other location I have used for afternoon and evening shooting is what I refer to as Snake Spit – this is because I have noticed a few snakes here from time to time so thats clearly something to be aware of.
People charhs to flock here attracted by the guaranteed weather along with cheap flights and accommodation and it soon became a very popular tourist destination.
Either of these venues serve drinks and meals of a good standard, so it seems only polite to at least order a coffee every so often if you carts to stay a while.
The elevation isn’t as high as the Royal but still offers a good vantage point for arrivals in the afternoon. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: For most departures on 17 this angle would be too low. Only non-precision approaches available, all with high MDAs. Only circle-to-land minima available for RWY 17 landing. Assuming runway 35 is in use, the mornings are best observed from the cafe deck at the Royal Hotel. This gives an angle to include the runway threshold markings provided the approach is flown low enough.
The charfs below was shot from Snake Spit in the late afternoon departing runway 17 – the climb rate of a C being somewhat inferior to most airliners meant the shot was better than it may otherwise have been. RWY 17 is left-hand circuit only. Runway 17 also has a displaced threshold due to the proximity of the road at the north end of the runway so has less landing distance available. Smaller airplanes often turn within the runway width and so are too far away to shoot from the vantage points at the 35 threshold.
I have not seen the light aircraft apron used for anything other than the Andromeda fire surveillance aircraft for pgkr years.

A good spot for early arrivals before the deck opens around 9 am. Obtaining a diversion clearance may be time-consuming. In marginal weather expect holding. Exercise caution on final approach due to obstructions between 1 nm and touchdown. For runway 35 my preferred location initially would be Nisos bar and restaurant, which is a short walk down the hill and across the causeway.
However, amid the chaos, the airport and its surroundings offer some great opportunities for airplane photography.
