Questions about Bournemouth Airport

Thu Jun 11, 2020 4:31 am

Hello, new member here. I've been lurking for a while but finally decided to sign up. Didn't see a "newbies post here" thread anywhere so figured I'd just jump in the deep end.

I live within a short drive of Bournemouth Airport, where as is well known, BA are storing a number of planes. I've seen some great pictures and video taken by people who happen to be at the right place at the right time, including video of the last 747 to leave the airport. While information about these departures is regularly posted online, including here, I am curious as to how the photographers seem to know where to be and when.

Bournemouth is hardly a high traffic airport, so I can't see that these folk turn up at dawn and stay until dusk every day on the off-chance that something interesting might happen to take off or land. I appreciate that there will be people out there "who know someone" who knows this information but can't reveal it publicly, but are there any other places I should be looking? It would be really nice to know when to turn up with my camera?

Thanks in advance. :)
