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.

Regular Traffic

easyJet's A319s dominate here, however one will most likely see one of the numerous Ryanair departures along with BA Connect ERJ-145 services. A highlight of the day would be Continental's 757-200 presence on most mornings as well as numerous charter operations from First Choice to Thomsonfly to Excel Airways. There is a GA terminal on the South side of the airport which sees approximately 3 or 4 movements an hour.
