next week I'm going to spend a day in Luton for spotting. I've been there in February for the first time and know the spots for morning light. In February weather was really poor and there was no need to care about back light but this time I hope for some sunny moments which means that I'll have to get on the other side of the runway (from the terminal side).
I don't really wanna risk my and other people's lives driving around with a rental car so I have to walk there or try it with public transportation.
On the map on the airport's homepage I found a car park which seems to be close to the afternoon spot but I don't know if I can walk the distance between the bus stop and the spot.

From what I know of Luton walking is not really an option any more. There used to be some woods to the south east of the field but I believe these are now out of bounds. That leaves you with a drive through country lanes to get to the south of the field for shots like this.

Just got back from luton airport today.
Parkway Car park is a pretty good place to spot from the top, the arrivals go over at about 150 feet. Not sure about departures there as they were using that way in for arrivals today. Also its only Â£4.20 per day for a car, and i guess by foot you could just walk into it.
You cant have your cake and eat it... What the hells the point in having it then!!!
