    Sheremetyevo Airport

    Can anyone describe what can be seen of Moscow when taking off from Sheremetyevo airport? A lot? A little? Trees? is there a better side to sit on the plane?

    I suppose it probably depends on the assigned flightpath, but I've never seen anything but countryside when we've been low enough to make out anything of interest, either landing or taking off. That said, I couldn't tell you which side of the plane I've on during any of my journeys, so I may just have been on the 'bad' side each time.

    I can confirm this. Every time during take-offs/landings in Moscow airports I saw just countryside. I think flightpaths are all outside the city but it's natural after all.

    Yes. On the contrary landings in London can be cool. I remember seeing Highbury for example. And the river.
    And if you land at City airport it's quite a thrill because you're sure they're just gonna dump you in the water .. until the very last minute

    The airport is north of the city and so you only see the districts just outside the city as you land. Lots of trees.
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

    With some luck, you can also see lots of ugly five-storied brick houses of Lobnya.
    (I was always wondering, how people in this town survive with all this roar overhead).

    We used to live under the flight path of SeaTac airport, (infactwe only moved like 1 mile away, i think we still are under it). You can't even hear the planes unless you are outside.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    Also have in mind that regardless of urban density, the presense of pinetrees, always makes cityscape - "dissapear" somewhat - even though for Moscow this would only apply to the outer areas...

    (By the way fly to Rome-Ciampino, landing from the north, sitt on the left side, now thats a view!!!, best I ever saw from a plane...right over the centre with the st. pietro dome majestically standing out!!!)
