Ural Airlines, Koltsovo Airport allow "plane spotters" to photograph aircraft

In celebration of the 70th anniversary of civil aviation in the Urals, Ural Airlines teamed up with Koltsovo International Airport to offer the opportunity for "plane spotters" to catch airplanes landing and taking off in the crosshairs of their cameras.

Late last month, participants could take interesting and breathtaking shots of planes performing aircraft maintenance procedures at dawn, in any weather.

Hundreds of photographers came to scope out the most attractive viewpoints from taxiways near the runway, on the apron and on the roof of the Angelo Hotel. Koltsovo Airport will take the best photographs and include them in an exposition.

Ural Airlines and Koltsovo Airport expressed their gratitude to all the plane spotting participants for their creative involvement.
