yeah, I am from NCL
and I admit, spotting is crap. You kinda have to stay in ur car, (if ur in it)! If you continue north of the terminal, follow signs for Dinnington. Just about 100 yards down the road, once you are off the round about, to the right is a gate. You can drive through there and park. However , there are NO views of the ruunway, just a view of the terminal. And you can see the planes take off from there. (but SOMEONE! was already in my spot today:-() I went for aspin before work.
On a sunday, you will find quite few people in cars on the east end of the Runway. But you are not allowed to park here. Double yellows and signs. The terminal is crap to spot. An if you go to the genav section its also closed to Unauthorised traffic, I believe the road to the Flying club is also a restricted access road.
If you are stopped, tell the person where to go. There are no signs saying that you cant take a photo, and its not a crime to take photos. I admit NCL
is crap, especialy now tht there are barely any planes here, as we are on winter timetable. But its all we have here, so never mind. Howay the lads
