UAE United Arab Emirates - Dubai International Airport ( DXB  - OMDB )                                              Website :


Dubai is a city best known of the seven emirates that make up the UAE federation. Although neither the largest nor the most populous city, is considered the economic capital and crossroads of the most impressive tourist sites by excess. To drain all the people who travel for tourism, business or goods to and from this great desert city, many flights are operated at various airports and the main the Dubai International Airport located a few kilometers from downtown to the east. DXB Airport consists of an impressive site consists of 4 terminals. T1, 3 and 4 in the new building is located west of the complex, the terminal 2 and the cargo center lie to them when in the east. Two parallel runways 12L-30R and 12R-30L share the traffic. The procedures for using these two tracks are alike every day. Arrivals are usually in the morning sweats 12L, 12R and departures until noon. Following the heating of the air above the desert and the cool air of the nearby sea, the wind shifted from south to north every day usually around noon and it was then that a change of direction use is observed. Arrivals are on the runway 30L and 30R departures. It was around 20h every day that the tracks 12 are used again until the next day. Traffic at night is very impressive and interesting, but it is frustrating to see this wealth of traffic with no chance to take pictures. At sunrise until 9am the traffic is composed almost exclusively of the Emirates fleet. 9 to 12 are the aircraft of the Middle East, of 12a 14h a second wave of planes from Emirates and 15h show a more varied, with Indian, Chinese, and many local cargo until the night. The national carrier Emirates made its impressive fleet of exclusive long-haul models including the smallest copy is an A330 is based, as Fly Dubai's new low-cost locally. Number of companies serve the airport alone, mostly from other emirates, but also the Persian Gulf basin. A very strong cargo business is registered with daily flights to the world with all kinds of different equipment which is full of surprises.
It is not allowed to take pictures of airplanes around the airport. We had to content ourselves with our reporting approach, move away and take pictures from the streets of downtown, where from the terrace of the hotel pool Seiraton Deira which is right next to the corridor approach 12 tracks.

Our trip started spotting 2 April 2011, we boarded the Turkish flight TK1938 BRU-IST (A321 TC-JMF) into Istanbul for four hours of transit to finally board the flight TK760 (A330-300 TC-JNJ) to Dubai arrived at 1:50AM. Direction the hotel for a short night before dedicating the day April 3, 2011 at spotting from the small village Mirdiff. The other days of the week were dedicated to a morning of spotting from the terrace of the hotel and the afternoon to many sightseeing of this beautiful city with a thousand faces high diversity.
During our trip, we really have not had any luck with the weather elements with a sky laden with water vapor, but traffic was in turn above our expectations! The homecoming was to board the flight TK763 DXB-IST aboard an A321 TC-JMJ 9avril the early morning, and after a few hours spotter transit through the terminal window Istanbul we embarked aboard the A330-200 TC-JMG to Brussels. I'll let you discover the impressive crop of photos of traffic, a real pleasure for spotters!
