Zurich by day, Zurich by night | Spotting @ LSZH

HELLO COMMUNITY!

This topic is NOT related to the Zurich Community Meetup that happened earlier today.

Or maybe it is.

No, it’s actually not.

Anyways, here are some photos from across a couple days and spots around LSZH. This airport got a little overshadowed by the mountain towns of Innsbruck and Meiringen on my recent trip, but in terms of large commercial airports without outstanding scenery, Zurich definitely still got it.

Gear: Sony α7iii + Sony 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS & Nikon D7500 + Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art



Helvetic E190-E2 [HB-AZA] arriving Runway 28.

Shot at 1/6.


Edelweiss A340-300 [HB-JME] departing Runway 16.

Will miss these when they’re gone.


British Airways E190 [G-LCYV] pulling into Dock E.

Check out that reflection.


Etihad 787-9 [A6-BLR] departing Runway 34.

Only one that went off this runway the entire morning.


Ethiopian A350-900 [ET-AUB] pushing back from Dock E.

Normally I don’t like lens flare but it helps out here.


A Private 777-200(LR) [VP-CAL] sitting on Apron West.

Would be cooler if it left.


Aer Lingus A320-200 pulling into Dock E.

This aircraft would later take me on my first leg home.


Swiss A330-300 [HB-JMF] departing Runway 16.

They should really use 16 over 28 more often.


British Airways A320-200 [G-EUUG] arriving Runway 14.

Why is daylight panning more difficult than night panning?


Swiss A330-300 [HB-JHE] being repositioned at Dock E.

Swissport pulls Swiss plane.



Glad I got a more comprehensive feel for LSZH spotting this time around compared to last time where I had 90 minutes at Heligrill. Fantastic airport, probably the most spotter friendly international airport out there.

Also, if you go, buy the Heligrill Combo A and eat it with the ketchup to spite @Kamryn.

Are they planning on getting rid of their A340s?

The opposite actually, they’re introducing another one into their fleet!

Nice! London City seems like a cool airport to fly out of.

Not directly, but with four engines you got to assume they’re probably going to go somewhat soon. I think Swiss is giving them up to Edelweiss by 2025, who knows how long they’re going to stay there.

Thank you!

These are very cheesy. They have a lot of Swiss in it.

I really like your shots from Zurich! Iam also a planespotter from LSZH. If you want we can meet us there for spotting. :D

Thank you! I’m actually from the US so it’ll probably be a while before I return. I love Switzerland to death but it’s very expensive to visit and pretty far too.
