Have you tried to fly LCY
You get a observation deck (glass wall) above Terminal 2 ( = Star Alliance).
A spotter hill facing the apron of Terminal 1. A few old a/c are on display. Airside tours are offered.
For the spotting locations along the runways you will need a car or a bike.
Visitor Terrace between Terminals A and B.
Some interesting traffic from Russia and CIS especially on Saturdays (sometimes delayed, espcially Air Astana with its B767).
Car Park Nord (North) can be reached on foot in 10 minutes and offers views of the taxiway to runway 27R; runway 27R itself is a bit further away.
If going for two days, take the train to another german city (airport) on the second day. Then depart from there back to LON. BRE
would be reachable on discounted railway fares ("Niedersachsen ticket").
Also ICE-trains to Berlin (TXL
) and FRA
are frequent and fast (2-2.5 hr). AFAIK, spotting at TXL
from around the terminal however is rather limited.

Sorry i have already been to AMS forgot to metion. Is FRA observation deck open now?
Yes, but only in Terminal 2, so views of the apron are limited.
Have you any intention to join us at the FRA

Any (!) aircraft spotting on Italy's airports is legally forbidden vietato !
