I've been two times to beautiful (and crazy) Mallorca in the summer and on both ocasions I went to the airport a few times. Let me say that with a car (or a scooter or even a bike) in PMI
is really easy to make photos.
If you're planning to walk then let me say that it can be done more or less easily if the 06L is in use for arrivals, but only if you're staying in Can Pastilla area.
Here is a self plug, but I'm sure it will help

The beach on the photo is Can Pastilla and the marina is also easy to spot. If you're walking then follow the coast line until you find a small street named Calle del Dentol (easy to see on google earth). From there you can easily make photos with good light in the morning only of aircrafts about to land on the 06L. You can even get closer from the aircrafts landing as there is a foot path there following the coast line and I would say that 300mm are enough from there.
Hope you enjoy Mallorca.
