Remarks: Good-bye to the old northern runway 25R/07L. Partly broken up and used as a parking lot for cars during the Berlin Air Show ILA 2008. Nevertheless the only remaining runway is called 25L/07R to avoid confusion (Mai 2008).
Remarks: ... and it's already history. "Cleared to land" for the old northern runway of SXF. This runway is broken up now, a motorway (A13) will cross it in the future. During construction of BBI, the airport has only one operational runway. The new second runway will be built in the south.
Shot was taken from D-EDUF, C172. For a light type aircraft like this, it was recommended to vacate the runway via E in the middle of the touch down zone or via J arranged behind to avoid backtrack or a long way of taxiing.
Remarks: Overview Berlin Schoenefeld Aiport, only on aircraft LTU Airbus A320 before Terminal. Schönefeld International Airport has four terminals: A, B, C and D. Most airlines arrive and depart from Terminal A center, except for easyJet (Terminal B) right side, Condor, Germanwings, SunExpress (Terminal D) left side and all Israeli airlines (Terminal C) left side.
Remarks: Inside terminal A, heading upstairs to the viewing terrace...
You can see here the main check in area for Terminal A where you have to have your bag screened before checking in. Schoenefeld is not the most modern of airports and i can definatly see why they are building BBI!
Remarks: The building of the Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BBI) has begun, you already can guess the new shape. At present the airport is located at the left hand side of the picture. The external runway will be closed and removed later.
Remarks: The terminal and parts of the apron of Berlin-Schönefeld in August 2005. A TU-154 (RA-85767) has just landed before we left. The construction of Terminal D is in progress, actually it is used by Germanwings. Note, the terminal of the new planned Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport (BBI) will be build a few hundred meters south of this position within the next few years.
