2011 - European Champions League Final

Copyright 2011, Terry Fletcher, posted on 2011-05-29

In the United States you have the annual SuperBowl which attracts many aircraft to the event  - the nearest we get in Europe each year is The European Champions League Football (Soccer) finals.

The honour of hosting the event is rotated around most of the major European cities and 2011 was the year for the event to be held at Wembley Stadium , London

The finalists for this years Competition  were Barcelona from Spain and Manchester United from England  - for the Soccer fans this was great because we had a 'home' team to support  - for the aviation fan - it was a little disappointing because it meant that only half the competing supporters would come in by air !!

London Stansted and London Luton were chosen to receive the bulk of the flights connected with the event

I spent 2 days at Luton photographing some of the movements - which can be seen by going to the home page and drilling down


OR  Photographer / Terry Fletcher / United Kingdom / Luton / sub folder 2011 Champions League

Its difficult to know precisely what traffic visited specifically for the Football event - but I've pasted below a report on Civil Spotters   ( Credit Ian Farquharson ) for the aircraft noted at both Luton and Stansted on the 28th May 2011 - to give readers a feel for what was seen-  nothing like the volume of movements , as seen at a US event , but certainly a good mixture of International traffic

For the Soccer fans - Barcelona defeated Manchester United  3-1
