Free viewing areas for 2016?

Post by lifeofbrian »

I've seen people standing on roundabouts and street corners, is that hill at the end of the runway still usable?

Basically the who western end is a no go area, road and canal closed. Otherwise views unchanged.

I'm enquiring re trade days only. As someone who has always used Eelmoor in the past (usually after a long walk from parking the car), can someone guide me as to alternatives please. I've spent an hour or so searching online and only come up with Southwood Pavilion,to the North, but assume that this was probably only available on show days only and is no longer ideal due to the new restricted flying areas (as per map on show website)

I was hoping to go today and/or tommorrow. The weather forecast is poor so if possible, somewhere where I will be with or close to my car would be useful. I'm more interested in actually seeing certain aircraft rather than getting fantastic photos (though they would be nice).

Thanks in advance

Thanks. I had however already seen that.

I went today and ended up by The Swan. I'm sure there were some people at Eelmoor.
