I'm probably not the best person to be asking, but if they are taking off on 08R, then there is a crashgate at the end of the runway where you can poke the lens through. If they are using 26L, then you can get landing shots from the perimeter road, just south of the train station, but there is a high conifer hedge in the way, stopping you from seeing what's coming. The top level of the multistorey carpark at the opposite side of the railway to south terminal offers great views of stuff on short final and is ok for photography in the evening, but there are signs up warning that spotters aren't allowed. However, if you go to the floor below, there are no such signs. I've never been hassled by police in either spot, but I suppose you could be asked to leave.
