A couple quick questions.
How accessible is Gando AB from outside for photography on approach, both ends of the runway look open, and are the authorities happy so long as your not at the fence.
Is it fair to assume the civil airlines use the western runway and the military use the Eastern side, or is it flexible.
and finally a question open to all
How busy is Gando during the rest of the year, apart from exercises. Are we talking two or three military flights each day or maybe they only fly three days each week ?
Thanks in advance, Paul
It's easy to photograph from outside and authorities are no problem. I was also there last week, both inside and outside. I was also there back in September, you will not get hassled. As to military flights, it's hit and miss. FA-18 missions normally flown morning and afternoon, could be 2 flights of 2 aircraft, both AM and PM, could be just one flight of 2, it varies! As to the CASA's and AS.332s, again hit and miss. Gando does get a fair amount of visiting military aircraft, sometimes nice ones. Last week there was a French EC.160 Gabriel. Personally I wouldn't plan on spending a whole day there unless you like airliners!
