NADI AIRPORT (NFFN/NAM)Spotting Info
Between the terminal and the Air Pacific head office and MROs, the apron is visible for you to log anything parked up. At the terminal you may get asked what you are doing (they have a security post that stops all traffic entering into the terminal complex), but on the other side of the cross runway 09/27 from the terminal, where the GA ramps are, you should be fine. The GA are easy to view and log, as are most of the airliners parked at the terminal. The sightseeing helicopters operate from a pad outside their office in the southern part of the terminal complex, near runway 27 threshold.
On the west side of the airport is the Newtown Beach seaplane, usually two or three aircraft parked up. You'll need a car or taxi to get over here though.
If you're staying on Denarau Island, passenger flights usually flight right over the island, with the smaller regional aircraft sometimes landing on the shorter runway and therefore you won't log these.
