In the next of my series of posts about photographing planes, I will be focussing on Saga Airport (佐賀空港), also known as Kyushu Saga International Airport (九州佐賀国際空港).
Compared to Fukuoka Airport which I wrote about in the previous post, Saga is very quiet. Strangely so in an LCC world. Although work is being done to expand Fukuoka Airport’s capacity, Saga’s location would make it a perfect option as an alternative access point to northern Kyushu. I flew to Saga from Narita on Spring Airlines Japan and then went on to Fukuoka using public transport (bus to Saga station and then an onward train).
As it’s a small regional airport, you’ll need to be patient to get pictures (from the somewhat over-sized observation deck). Other than getting shots of the plane that I arrived on leaving on its next journey, the only action I saw was a small medical plane.
See details about other photographs I have used in my research here.
