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.

Turn right at the long-stay car park entrance. After 50 yards you come to a cross-roads at a mini-roundabout - turn left into British Road. You will pass the entrance of the Cargo Centre and after another 300m you will see the landing lights of runway 17 to your left. Turn left immediately into Seacash Road. This is a dead-end road but there are a couple of spots where you can pull in and look across the airfield towards the runway intersection, the Woodgate Hangar area and the RAF site. If you carry on along this road to the end you will find yourself at the back of the Woodgate hangar. You can normally see one or two of their light aircraft parked up outside as well as a withdrawn RAF Wessex hulk and Aldergrove's Rescue Training ex-BA Trident G-AVFE.

The airport Police patrol here regulary, but even though it is a control zone, they will sometimes let you stay for a while if you talk nice to them :).

Follow British Road from the airport until the end, when you come to a T-Junction, and turn left. Follow this road a few Km, until you come to a staggered junction just before a bridge, with some buildings to your left hand side. The road to your left is a control zone, so you cannot take the car up it ( it leads to the army base ), but you can leave your car at the buildings on the main road without a problem, and walk up. Views of aircraft approaching 07 can be got here whenever it is in use. There are a lot of trees in the way etc,,, but its OK for air shots, and the sun is on your side.
