In May 2009 the Champions League Final was i Rome and Barcelona met Manchester United and I was around the airport to catch some fottie charter. I don’t know if Fiumicinio Airport still operate with planes from Schengen areas on one runway and planes from non Schengen contries on the other runway. In 2009 they had this configuration, which mean that you had to choose either I get a lot of planes or I get a few planes but from exotic countries, I choose to stand on the Schengen site. In 2009 there were some good places where you could take pictures, but again the best pictures was taken when the plane still is in the air otherwise the heat haze reduce the image quality.
During my stay I talked with a lot of people but nobody knows which aircraft we could expect vist the airport. I normally into surprises and therefore I didn’t listen closely when they talk about what to expect.
All in all in enjoyed the three days around the airport, and the tense atmosphere a football final always give.
