Hello Hector,

I can recommend you my homebase LEJ/EDDP for plenty of cargos(DHL, Volga Dnepr, Antonov Airlines, Kalitta, Polar, Southern, Cargo Air, ASL...).

Pax isn't that interesting here.

The best time for spotting at LEJ is Sunday(1600 CET to Monday morning).

For more information you can contact me via Facebook(Tim Meyer) or Instagram(@ossiviation) :)

Kind regards

My most favorite airport among my homebase is definitly LHR:

You have:

- some great locations

- a lot of traffic (with many exotic airlines from all over the world)

- and a free travel zone around Heathrow

I´ve spotted there for some days now and it is simply brilliant (y) (unless you have bad luck with weather)

My favourite location is Amsterdam Schiphol Airport among Hamburg! It's a very spotter friendly and cool airport with nice locations for someone who's trying to take some "unusual" pictures! You only have to be lucky with the runways;)

Kind regards

My personal choice would be London Heathrow, Frankurt, Amsterdam Schiphol and Zurich Kloten.

You can look for more information about them in spotters' guides and decide if those above are offering what you are looking for :)
