Video - What is a spotter ?

- By

Originally from the Old Norse, to spot, the term Spotter was derived by the English during the Second World War to mean a lookout or person who identifies something, and was the name given to a ground-based unit of the Royal Air Force (RAF) responsible for monitoring the sky, or keeping lookout against enemy aircraft. Today the term has a more photographic connotation as in this video.

    Despite being a great lover of all things that fly I do not consider my self a "spotter" but an "aviation enthusiast" who loves capturing photographically speaking all flyable vehicles.
