We have recently had a 'refurb' at the RVP (Runway Viewing Park) at MAN. I've not seen it personally as yet but I'd be happy to take some photos when I next visit. Should be quite soon I imagine.
There is also the famous pub at the runway end. Not sure whether photos of that and its beer garden would be of any use?

For e.g. I am interested in pictures of the spotting hill at Munich. On my trip there a few years ago,i took pictures of the aircraft but not of the hill. This is where the Connie and Ju-52 is. While, we can can pull it up on Google maps, ground level photo(s) would enable views that would help in determining planning and construction etc.

Suresh, I'm not trying to be funny, but it is ironic, that the other sites Accept spotting locations into their databases.

Well, Miami with its "holes" provides me with just about everything I need! That said, here are some shots I've taken over the years of several other facilities. Some of these are indoor venues, and most were taken with my mobile phone camera with predictable quality. If these are useful, have at them. If you get much response to this it would be nice to have a repository of such pictures - we've talked about trying to get something like this going here in Hartford (BDL) and having some representative samples of other facilities would be useful.

Of course, you can stretch it to the other extreme and take ZRH's new visitor terrace into account. That's one impressive state-of-the-art facility.

Until I get some photos specifically depicting the public spotting/photography facilities at MAN, how about this one?
|Quoting jlunddk (Reply 8):|
Here you can see spotting locations from all over the world, and a lot of them with google earth cordinates.

In this picture you can see (on the left side) a small part from one of the two hills in Munich:
I will shoot both hills for you as soon as I´m at EDDM!

Having been to MIA once last year, I think the runway 9 and the "holes" over on 12 are fantastic locations! Will be going back over Easter weekend and am really looking forward to spending time at those locations. Will be nice to see what you guys get down in MIA.

Here's the viewing area at MKE.
|Quoting eksath (Reply 14):|
I am looking forward to anything else you can get of this area showing a wide view

here some photos of our great visitior platform at Düsseldorf Airport. We have two platforms, one on the roof of Terminal B and one is located over the railstation of the airport. I searched my whole hard drive, but I only found some overviews of the railstation-platform.
In the early morning it is great for some nightshots,but you have to be lucky to get a good shot! (the planes are moving most of the time)
