Other Spotting Locations
08R Crash Gate
Probably the most popular spot at Gatwick, it's excellent for shooting aicraft taxing and holding for departure from 08 (and as a result is only available 30% of the time). The spot provides several different angles depending on where along the crash gate you shoot from. If a ladder is used please take it down after you have taken your shot.
26L - Inner Perimeter Road
The best place to be when 26L is in use, which is about 70% of the time. Provides good landing views and picture opportunities. Very limited shots of ground activity although it is possible through a fence.
South Terminal International Departure Lounge
Only accessible if you are travelling. Situated upstairs in the departure lounge by the Sports Bar, offers nice views across the airfield and runway. Windows seem to be generally clean, so photos may be possible.
Locations to Avoid:
South Terminal Short stay Car Park
You're very likely to be moved on by security from here.
Usual for British Airports - i.e. British Airways 737s & 777s, easyJet 319s, Flybe Dash8 & BAe146 etc.. During the summer months (May-October) there is a large charter airline presence at the airport, including First Choice Airways, My Travel and Thomsonfly.
