Ive never been to SNN with te intention of spotting but with the airport being a huge maintenace hub you can get some great traffic. FR have a base their now so its not as quite as it used to be and it has all the transatlantic flights DUB has so it can be good if you patient.

Im certainly not going to drive down and unfortunatley EI only operate 4 flights a day whic all depart really early but Im sure a trip down on an A330 and a normal bus back must be worth while.

I've been the once, unfortunatly it was about 2 in the morning, and I was supposed to be working. Luckily those nice people in Airfield Ops managed to get me the details of the shadows in the distance!

Out of those a few were new bits - mainly ATA stuff at the time!
