I will be visiting Manchester airport this weekend, and was wondering what good spotting places there are beside the official area?

There seems to be a lane of some sort beside one of hte runways, do you get moved on or hassled if you spot from there? Dont want to annoy the locals!

Cheers

Are you driving?

If so, BEWARE, I went to southside of 24L three weeks ago and got a £30.00 parking ticket.

Hmmm, perhaps it would be wise to park somewhere else and walk down to the southside? I parked there last week for around 90 minutes and i was fine, although i do know that spotters have been getting tickets and it isn't an official parking area. I try and park up on the grass out of the way when i go over there.

I parked wholly on the grass and not on the road just off the roundabout. There was a car parked on the road on the other side and that did not have a ticket on it.

Hmm, perhaps the other car came after the traffic wardon had been? Sometimes i think that the hotel owners don't like people parking up as their mini-bus uses that little lane as it's easier for it to get on to the main road from the roundabout? God knows. They should build a few parking spaces as it is nice walk a long there, plenty of people go for walks along there and take their dogs too, me included! Think my shih-tzu has a passion for aviation like his owner! Big grin
