Mikhail Vasilenko, General Director of Sheremetyevo Airport, opened the spotting. He wished all participants good photos and an interesting day. Greeting the spotters, Vasilenko noted: “We’re happy to see you here in Sheremetyevo Airport. Today you have the unique opportunity to see how the airport works from within, to take photos of the life of the airport from the most interesting angles.”
The team of spotters was accompanied by employees from the aviation safety service and by the aerodrome service. The spotters took exclusive shots from unusual angles: from the closed area of the runway, the taxi way, and the parapets of the historical symbol of the airport – the “shot glass” pavilion. The spotters were given the unique opportunity to look into the heart of the “shot glass”, where the production-dispatcher service is located. The event participants watched how airport specialists directed planes, and saw various technological operations and the airport personnel’s work at the aerodrome.
