The answers are:

Robert: end of 26L by the road.

T Silgrim: end of 08R.

Jonathan: don't actually know, any offers?

Michael: taxying towards the 08 gate.

Terry: airside so forget it!

Jonathan: end of 08 near the runway lights presumably.

And Paul's at the end of 08, at the 08 gate.

I guess Robert photo was taken from this place:



At the beginning of 26L, South Terminal is 200m straight ahead, on the left.

Jonathan's Sleazy shot was either taken from one of the trees at the 08 end, police are none too happy if they catch you in them  Wink/being sarcastic Or the hedge could be the hedge at the 08 end which means he was using a ladder at a guess?

Jimmi,

Do what we had to do in the olden days and drive your car around the perimeter until you find a decent spot  Wink/being sarcastic

Cheers

LGW,

I live about 1 hour and 30 minites from Gatwick and i thought it be easier to post a topic on it than to drive up and not know where to go.
