Hi guys!

Just wondering if anyone has ever had any problems photting from the mounds at the far side of the airport or any of the perimeter of MAN? I like to go to the areas not normally seen but am always a bit unsure if I'm ok where I am.

I also like to go to the hill next to the fire station at the side of R2.

Any info?

photting

That sounds a bit rude!

Manchester is well known for being friendly to photographers and spotters, and you should have no problems at all. The areas beyond the perimeter fences beside Runway 24L have public footpaths all around, so that is not an issue.

The problem for you may be that - if the weather is half decent - it is now almost impossible to find any areas not already frequented by men and cameras. So I don't think there are many areas 'not normally seen'.

If you need any more specific information, feel free to ask. Enjoy your trip.

Thanks for that, I'm just a bit weary of being spoken to by the police.

Went this morning, cold, windy, rainy, cloudy... not a good choice but I did get a few decent ones although not of the quality required for A.net.

You can only get off the train at the airport really, then it's a 1 1/2 hour+ walk round to the mounds. If you're just spotting and not photographing level 12 of the multi-storey car park will be fine.

The mounds by 24L are a long way to go if you don't have a car. I'd reccomend Level 13 on T1 multistorey car park or the AVP. I hope you enjoy your spotting trip  Smile

Thanks guys. I was just spotting and not photographing. Anyway I went to the Level 13 of the T1 carpark and later to the airport pub. It was nice at the pub as suddenly they used 24R for take offs and landings. It was a fun couple of hours out there. Unfortunately it was a bit cold suddenly during the weekends otherwise I should be there for longer!
Thanks again guys!

Between 1200 and 1500 they always switch to single runway operations on 24R/06L (soon to be 23R/05L), the reason being that they have to give the residents of Mobberley a "rest" from the noise of the aircraft by shifting them a couple of hundred yards!

What time were you at the pub? You may have seen me... I had black pants and shoes and a stripey shirt... with a big coat. Was there around 11.45 and 1.40 for an hour! Big grin
