Lorcha / l'Orxa

Costa Blanca



NL:     In het binnenland van Spanje, costa blanca, ligt Lorcha. Een perfecte uitvalsbasis voor een dagje spotten. Zowel de luchthaven van Alicante als die van Valencia bevinden zich namelijk op redelijke afstand. Dankzij het goede klimaat en de goede bereikbaarheid lenen zich beide luchthavens uitstekend voor het spotten van vliegtuigen. Valencia Airport    Alicante Airport

UK:     Away from the coast of the costa blanca in Spain you will find a village called Lorcha. Lorcha is a perfect operating base for a day of spotting. Because of the fact that both of the airports Valencia and Alicante are situated on a respectable distance. Due to the good weather conditions and the perfect  reachableness of the airports it is excellent for a day of spotting. Valencia Airport    Alicante Airport

Runway layout: 12/30. The north-south runway is very rarely used.

Base of: VLC is the home of Air Nostrum, which operates an extensive network of domestic and an increasing number of international lines under the Iberia Regional brand name.  Air Nostrum's headquarters and maintenance centre are located at the southern part of the airport. ORIONair is a new airline planning to start operations ex-VLC in June 2006.

Spotting: A good spotting spot can be found at the eastern end of runway 12/30, near a Repsol petrol station.  There is a pedestrian bridge spanning the motorway which is located along the final approach path.  The best time to take pictures is in the morning.  A second spot is near the golf course in the north-west end, good for taking pictures of aircraft just before touchdown, especially in the morning or late afternoon.  From the terminal, there is a good overview of the apron and the runway from the cafeteria on the third floor.

There are 3 main sites for spotting in ALC (el Altet), one is on the threshold of rwy 10, the other on the threshold of rwy 28 and the last is on the middle of the rwy.
All are located opposite the terminal building in the perimetral road. You must take Torrellano road when exiting the airport and then you will arrive to a turnaround. Follow straight ahead and then turn to the left taking El Altet road. All you have to do is following the fence and stay alert to find little hills of asphalt of the old road that helps you evade the fence and take photos.
