Enthusiasts Information

Spotting Spots

Security Information (important - please read!)  - Anti Terrorist Video please watch

Note 1: 'Spot 2' has a disclaimer asking people not to go here, the rules have since been relaxed and providing you're quick you can now use this location, however a new Police hangar restricts viewing and makes photography near-impossible. For an alternative, walk up to the fence on the opposite side of Hangar 2 between the now-disused Gate 7 and the Weston Aviation executive terminal, this will give you a view of anything on stand 9 and possibly stand 8 as well.

Note 2: Car Parking - the main car park has three hours free, ample time to park up and see what you need to see as well as having a coffee in the main terminal.
