Might visit the IOM in Sept. What's it like to view the movements while landside and airside from within the terminal? I don't take photos or collect registrations. I just like watching. Is there a cafe or pub with decent views? Any info appreciated. Thanks.

I should think that Skidmarks will be able to confirm this, but I seem to remember that when I met him for a drink at IOM, that the cafe overlooked the apron, providing excellent views from the seating. Mind you, it wasn't the cheapest airport cafe I have ever seen!

LOL. Thanks Dan. Hopefully he, or someone else, can confirm.

Also, does anyone know whether there's a cafe/bar/pub at BHD which offers decent views while landside and airside in the terminal?

Cheers.

Pe@rson, can confirm the cafe overlooks one side of the apron, should be just fine for spotting, airport seems to have free wifi too!

Definitely had free wifi when I was there on business in March. Cafe did overlook the apron (although it was quiet when i was there.



The best way forwards is upwards!

Does anyone know whether there's a cafe/bar/pub at BHD which offers decent views while landside and airside in the terminal?

Airside is worse than useless, do not go through until you really have to, views are bad, photography impossible. It is usually crowded, and just plain horrible! Landside, there is an upstairs cafe that offers good views of apron and runway, so best to stay there until 30-45mins before your departure...

Quoting Pe@rson (Thread starter):

Isle of Man is great airport for viewing aircraft. Cafe overlooks one side of the apron, and most of the runway and taxiways. All movements will be seen with some being quite close up. Either side of the terminal building (outside) excellent close-up views are on offer, and it is possible to walk around to the hanger areas to spot anything interesting around there. If you have a nice day, then the place i recommend is the Manx Aviation Museum. Take a left out of the terminal building and walk towards Castletown. The museum is on the left, 3-4mins walk from the airport and has picnic tables you can sit at and view the movements from. The museum is only open weekends, but you can sit here at any time, and inspect the derelict EMB-110 Bandierante on the sight. Please have a look at my most recent trip report to/from IOM + BHD for further details... although i see you have already commented!
