The terrace is very good although at certain times of the day you'll have to pick your spots to match the position of the sun. There's also a very good spot just to the right of the terminal, past the bus park, which involves a walk through a (snowy) field onto a raised mound. A brisk walk (or quick drive) in either direction will lead to some good spots at both ends of the runway, with something small to stand on being of benefit.
Here are a few of my shots from SZG - the first two from the terrace and the second two from the snow-covered mound next to the terminal:

remember that traffic is very slow on weekdays in Salzburg so rather go there on a Saturday to catch the wintercharter-traffic.
Also note that due to some noise restrictions there won't be many Russian-built aircraft this season, most likely it will be 1 or 2 Yak-42 and 1 or 1 Tu-204/14.

Yes, sorry, I forgot to mention it's a Saturday-only place! My images are from Saturday 12th January 2006, and although Soviet types are rare indeed now, the pace and amount of traffic I believe remains much the same.
During my last visit I spent two weekdays out there and let me tell you, it got tedious!

cheers jax, i know the feeling....although MAN has fairly regular traffic it gets quite dull as you prob know.
i need to be back on the sunday and Thomsonfly flights are monday fri, sat (but too early to get a decent days photography-unfortunate as it looks quite decent) and sun so im gonna avoid it this time and poss go Frankfurt for a few days. Flights on LH are £100 so i think il do that-you know of the spots at FRA and how to get to them?
