Approach over the Mackenzie beach



Spotting trip from 18th till 22th August 2016

We arrived at Larnaca August 18, 2016 by the Aegean flight via Athens. View accommodation , we chose a hotel located beachfront at Mackenzie Beach. The choice was opted for proximity to Mackenzie Beach where airplanes landing on runway 22 are over the beach. In the morning we went to the runway threshold 22 to take pictures of landings and takeoffs . Unfortunately, due to the relatively tense political climate on the island, we were quickly dislodged by the police justified the ban be along fences. Unfortunately we then had to skip the morning spotting and we reserve the afternoon to make pictures of the track had approaches from 22 chairs to Mackenzie Beach . Find below some pictures of the morning and harvest arrivals from the beach.
