I went today!
(and saw my 1st aborted t/o & go-around. It was an Eva Air Cargo MD-11F and really supprised me with the steep climb instead of landing. I also saw an AZ A321 make the worst landing I've ever seen; I'm sure the nose gear was on the ground before the rear wheels!)

The huge Tesco supermarket at Knocknagoney, near Belfast has a huge car park which overlooks the runway @ Belfast City Airport (BHD) - you can sit for an hour while somoene else does the shopping and spot.

That's wierd EnglandAir....I've only ever seen a 'go-around' once-and it was at LHR! And it was an Eva Air MD11F!! It was about six weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon.I've only been spotting at LHR twice so far this year,but I started a new job last week in SW London and can see up to 3 a/c lined up on the glideslope to LHR at any one time usually,so I hope to be a more frequent visitor to LHR this spring/summer.
you can't buy time but you can sell your soul and the closest thing to heaven is to rock'n'roll
