At the slope head of RWY 16 is the "Fire Brigade Hill". This photo position was given the name "Fire Hill" because until 2014 one had a great view of the former Air Afrique DC-8 TU-TCP, which served as a training aircraft for the airport fire brigade. These photo points can be reached from Oberglatt (photo point 8) on foot in about 20 minutes (walking along the fence).
