SpottersWiki icon.png Many airlines have modified their schedules as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, please consult a flight tracking site such as FlightAware or FlightRadar24 or airline web sites for current flight information.
Some areas are restricting non-essential activities in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Please ensure that spotting is not temporarily prohibited by a local public health order before heading to the airport.

===Southern Perimeter/Former RAF Camp===
   −
Avoid the road on the south side of the airport leading to the former RAF camp (now army helicopter base). There are security cameras mounted along here and anything more than a 10 second stop is likely to result in you being stopped by the military. The "south side" of the airport in general is out of bounds unless you have permission from someone within the camp. If runway 35 is in use (not often) do not be tempted to locate a spot near the threshold as this is well within the unofficial security zone for the camp.

Security is reasonably tight around the perimeter in general and you might be stopped by either airport police (most common), PSNI (Northern Ireland police force) or the British Army (fairly unlikely). The airport police are fine if you explain what you are doing. They might even offer some advice! The PSNI and army are much less regular visitors but you would undoubtedly run into them if you stopped anywhere around the south side of the airport. The locations on approach to 25 are fine as long as you adhere to the signage, you shouldn't have any bother.
