The author has produced this guide in a very logical format that includes sketches of airport runway, taxi way and apron layouts. – Highly Recommended Although this guide is a special interests publication aimed specifically at aircraft spotting enthusiasts, it has much to commend it to anyone visiting a major European airport. The guide is divided into country sections with a country map showing the locations of airports. This is followed be a guide for each airport, with the larger airports' entries including a sketch of the runways, taxi ways and aprons. There is a wealth of information that is vital to the serious enthusiast, but also interesting and useful for travellers using the airports. It details official spotting locations and also restaurants and hotels that provide good views of the live side of airports. Although the serious enthusiast may have special needs to setup binoculars, cameras and other equipment, most people using airports enjoy spending some spare time watching aircraft landing, taking off and making their way to terminals. In many cases, good spots from which to watch aircraft movements are also good locations to relax until your flight is called. A very useful addition to the airport guides, is the inclusion of aviation museums. Some of these are close to, or part of, the airport, easy to get to and spend time waiting for flights. Other museums may be further away, but worth the effort to visit if time permits. For the serious enthusiasts, the main activity may be watching and logging aircraft movements, but there is always time to visit museums in the area. Although lists can soon become out of date, the pages include margin lists of airlines operating from each major airport. The enthusiast will undoubtedly keep an eye open for future revised editions of this guide, but for the more casual user, this guide will have a reasonable life span.
