Luton Spotting Locations?

Thu Dec 15, 2005 1:58 am

I am on a business trip to Milton Keynes on Friday, I dont need to be there until 10:30 so was going to leave early and get an hour or so in at Luton. Can anyone suggest some good places to park and take some snaps?

Just a point, sorry, should have said before...
Unless you are very tall some small steps are useful, or even a milk crate will suffice. I am 6'4" and just manage to clear the fence for shooting.

If anyone is at Luton tommorow I will be in a Blue Subaru, just come and say hello.

I will be there early though, at about 08:00 until 09:30.
