Main Spotting Location

Winters Lane

Although BRS doesn't have an official Spotting Area, there is a location off Downside Road, on Winters Lane. This area is probably the best out of the few places, because you catch the 09 Line ups and landings, and the long 27 departures when the heavier aircraft such as the FCA 767 are in. Airport Staff and Police seem to have no problem with this; you'll usually get a wave from the ASU. A ladder is recommended for people wishing to partake in photography.

This location is off Downside Road, along Winters Lane, on the turning for Tall Pines Golf Club.See Map.

Other Spotting Locations

Runway 09 ILS

Below the ILS System for 09 is another place where sometimes people stop, only usually used when R/W 09 is active. Here you can get some interesting angles for photography.

This location is off Downside Road, along Winters Lane. See Map.

Locations to Avoid

Pathway leading up to RWY27 threshold

On the Southeast end of the airfield there's an unmarked gate by the A38 through which a path (the old road) can be found that leads right down to near the threshold of RWY27. Whilst this provides great views, one is in clear view of pilots lining up as well as security staff who will ask you to move immediately. The gate leading down that path is not marked and as such one might be fooled into thinking it's a legitimate spot but it would in fact seem that you may be described as a "security scare" if you venture there.
