ROMA SPOTTERS CLUB
spotters a FiumicinoRoma Spotters Club was created, in October 2009, by some spotters living in Rome and in the surrounding of the city. The main goal of the association is to share, promote and spread the exciting and unusual hobby of plane spotting. To be part of "Roma Spotters Club" means use, share and learn aeronautics and photographic culture, means also friendship and fun, means spending mornings and afternoons outdoor, means watching sunrise and sunset together. It means, above all, admiring aircrafts, which are definitely the best creations of physics and technology of the modern times. "Plane Spotting" is what “spotters” do: stay around airports looking for aircrafts landing, taking off or just taxiing and take pictures of them with their powerful cameras and lenses, always hoping to make a masterpiece, a perfect picture, or to take a shot of a rare aircraft. "Roma Spotters Club" works constantly to become the Roman point of reference for spotters coming from all over the world. In this website you can find information and guides about plane spotting in Rome Fiumicino airport. You can also take part at the periodical meetings organized by the club, inside and outside the airport fences.
