Farnborough viewing from Mile Hill?......

Post by Mr Pid »

Does anybody know if the the MOD land opposite the airfied is still off limits to the public?

I know post Shoreham there were heavy road closures in 2016 and the Police were stopping anyone from being on the MOD land.

Are the same rules in place this year?

I have tickets for Sunday but would like to get some nice photos of the planes taking off and landing head on if possible.

Cheers,

Hi do you mean the land that is directly west of the airport? If so yes it is. Even the last show it was completely off limits. I'm afraid it will be off limits each airshow now. They already have all the cones out at that end and have blocked any parking places and the fences are still in place from the last show.

Ahh - I thought as much. Thanks for the info.

Shame but I guess that's going to be the way now since Shoreham.

I did speak to Rushmoor Council in the end who confirmed it had been requested but the MOD were yet to confirm.

Shame really - was such a lovely spot for photos.
