    Q&A

    All 3

    I have travelled around the world from a young age and that has been my main influence in my passion for aviation. I was born in Germany and lived there for a year before moving to Poland for 4 years.

    When I first got Instagram, I was inspired by people’s travel photos and then came across some aviation accounts and from there decided to make my own aviation account in August 2015 called @flightpath_aviation. From there, my passion has grown enormously, for aviation and photography.

     

    The main thing I love about Heathrow is the variety of aircraft and airlines that visit daily. There certainly isn’t a shortage of aircraft to take photos of! With a takeoff or landing every 45 seconds, sometimes I can miss planes if I don’t pay attention.

    There is a great community of spotters and photographers around Heathrow. Always someone to meet or talk to whenever you go. It also attracts many foreign enthusiasts, so I enjoy showing them around the airport’s spotting locations.

    The Etihad Airways livery is definitely my favorite aircraft livery, it always looks good no matter what the weather is!

    • Visit your local airport when you can and try meet others who spot there.
    • Apps such as FlightRadar24 are great to see planes nearby and to see what is coming into your local airport.
    • There are many Facebook groups for spotters, especially at Heathrow, so have a look and try join one!
    • I’d recommend ‘London Area Aviation Spotting & News’
    • Take photos and post them online, there is an amazing community of people online who will help grow your passion.
    • Don’t give up on your passion or dreams. I’ve been put down many times by people but don’t let it get to you.
    • Follow your passion and do what you can to make it the most enjoyable experience possible.
