...If you look over the aircraft you can see what appears to be a large conference room with big windows at the top of the Radisson Hotel at MAN which looks like it might present interesting photography opporunities (assuming the windows are clean of course!  Wink/being sarcastic )

Anyone been there or know if you can get any decent shots from there?

Cheers

Yes I have been up there,

Take account that the hotel is a good 800-1000m from either runway, its behind Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, its a conference room and is out of bounds to hotel guests and visitors.

It has a reasonably good view of the apron in front of it, but not much else, there is a view of the runways but its not very good.

I also walked in during a meeting, not a good idea! Big grin

LOL!  Big thumbs up

That's great work Dan! So... did you brazen it out?

" What??? You boys carry on with your meeting, I'm just here to take some pictures. Pretend I'm not here!"

Cheers!

Hope to make it there sometime in the future....
Are there lens holes or glass at the viewing deck?

I was with my cousins, and they said 'hey look its called the aviation suite because there is a three-piece suite in it!!!', but no.. It was a business conference room.

I asked if I could planespot for a bit, don't mind me, they didn't answer  Laugh out loud.

Glenn - It depends, on top of the car park there are fences that are over 6ft high, but there are some holes, in the actual Aviation viewing park there are viewing mounds for seeing over the fence, and at the pub the aircraft approach over the fence.......... Over the other side, there are raised paths that you can see over the fences from, etc.

I once stayed in that hotel and one evening I went up there to check it out. The doors were open and some seats were provided... I didn't ask and spent the entire evening up there, just watching the planes come in and depart. The sight was awesome, with all these lights (RWY's, taxiways etc.)

But I doubt its useful for photography, as others have pointed out
