Spotter holes

Planespotting at Linz Airport

A special service for all aircraft enthusiasts are the so-called “spotter holes” at Linz Airport, which give people an unobstructed view of the planes starting and landing at the airport. Several of these “photo-friendly” points were created on behalf of the visitors requesting ideal spotter locations. Now, they let aircraft fans capture their favourite planes on camera – from various angles and without any fencing getting in the way of that perfect shot.
