Viewing Fighters at Shawbury

Viewing Fighters at Shawbury

Postby MiG_Eater on Tue 05 Jun 2018, 3:57 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm staying over on Saturday night before the airshow and was thinking of heading to Shawbury to see the fighters on the ground. I've never been to this base and just wondered if its possible to get a good view of the parked fighters - assuming they are in the normal location?

Thanks.

Depends on where they park them.
BUT if anything is using flares you wont get anywhere near them at all.
Only been once to see the squirrels but hope someone can help you a little more.

There are really only a couple of places to view, unfortunately the jet pan is sort of in the middle but you could be lucky and get really Nice landing shots, think of it as a bit like Coningsby

Local and MOD plod move on any vehicles parked at either end of the runways too making it quite a walk to get anywhere decent.
