In the next of my series of posts about photographing planes, and with signs of people travelling more again following the hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, I will be focussing on Oslo Airport – which I visited back in 2015.
The airport itself is quite a distance from Oslo city, but is easily accessed by train. From the airport it’s also no problem to walk out and get to good places for taking photos.
As you can see from the map above, there are two runways. Based on information that I had found online and seeing plane data using Flightradar24.com, I decided to go to the left-hand of the two runways shown in the map. In the end, this turned out to be the wrong choice as there was far more traffic on the other runway – although with a long lens it’s still possible to get pictures of these planes too. You can also get some good photographs while walking along Edvard Griegs Veg. In the end I spent most of the time about where the ‘E16’ mark near the end of the runway on the map above is.
Here are a selection of the photographs that I took when planes finally did use that runway.
Here are some additional shots taken as I walked around the airport area.
