Closed airport: Fornebu (FBU/ENFB)

I was looking for a seaplane…

I've asked a couple and I got this: “take the bus 31 to Snarøya”.

Lucky guy! The bus stop was only a few meters away.
OK, 7m left… it wasn't that much!
After paying 40NOK, I've asked the Vietnamese bus driver for the exact stop.
The kind men signed me the stop where I should leave the bus.

2m walk and I saw the Cessna TU206G Turbo Stationair 6 II, LN-IKA :)

Now, at home, I've discovered that I've been in the old Oslo Airport, Fornebu (IATA: FBU, ICAO: ENFB) (Norwegian: Oslo lufthavn, Fornebu)!

The airport opened as a combined sea and land airport, serving both domestic and international destinations.

For further detail and some nice old photos, please follow this link [].

Oslo harbor is on the right hand of the map.
Snarøya is outside of the map, on the left side.
Bus 31 was my transportation.

OK, 7m was not that much! :)

At that moment, only one seaplane was there

“Oslo Sjøflyhanv”.
You can read it! :)

The area is now a site for IT and communications-related companies, and a residential area is under construction.
You can see it on the background.
