Having a look to this pic I was wondering how were our places where we take pictures..

I have to say to the Manchester spotters that you have a very clean, decent and why not beautiful place!! I envy you
Here in Mallorca at PMI we have to fight against dirt, needles (heroin addicts who come nearby because the "local dealer" is located closed to the spotter place), dust...
Same thing when I've seen some pics from AMS for example..
Another point is the short distance you are from airplanes. I don't know why in my airport we are so far to the rwys..Do they worry about if we throw stones??
All the best
