On Saturday, August 6, the Quito International Airport received a special visit from 29 aviation photography enthusiasts who enjoyed a cloudless morning and afternoon, perfect conditions for capturing impressive photographs with a wonderful view of Cotopaxi Volcano.

Spotting is the hobby of recording and photographing the aviation world (planes and airports). It is an activity that has developed over recent years in Ecuador and there is an ever increasing number of persons who share this interest.

During the morning the spotters set up on the southeastern perimeter and, taking advantage of the light at this time, achieved impressive shots with a cloudless background view of Cotopaxi Volcano.

After a short break, the participants returned in the afternoon to continue with their hobby, this time setting up on the southwestern perimeter to capture shots from a different viewpoint.

The event was organized by ‘Ecuador Aviation Photography’ and the visit is just one of several that have already taken place in recent years at Quito International Airport.

Corporación Quiport has given its support at all times to the participants, always guaranteeing the safety of the airport.
