Hello, havning been to MAN recently im asked what it is like for spotting with regards facilities and how close you can get to the aircraft .....
I uploaded a shot that i thought would be of interest to anyone who wanted to know but it was rejected, for those of you who remember it was the JMC A330 with the spotters in view.
I managed to find another pic, so i eliminated the fence and uploaded to pp.net and it got on. MAN is an outstanding place for photography and for those going, or thinking of make a trip to MAN and want to know good spots, etc .... you can use this pic as a base as to how close you can get, note the spotters.

"Bus No 200/201 leaves the Airport bus station at 6 minutes past the hour (Railway Station at 8 minutes past) on weekends and Bank Holidays only for approximately 50p each way. The return bus leaves at 15 minutes past the hour and takes about 7 minutes.
Bus No 19 calls at the Cargo Centre near to the viewing park each day of the week on its Airport-Altrincham route, from the Cargo Centre it is just a short walk to the Romper Pub and the Viewing Park."

There could be some new attractions to see at the Viewing Park. MAN has issued a press release where they state that they've sought planning permission for a permanent aircraft display. No idea on the numbers or types, except that they will be relevant to northwest England.
