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.

MAN has 2 parallel runways, 24R / 06L ("Runway 1", "North Side") and 24L / 06R ("Runway 2" , "South Side") . Aircraft movements are generally inbound on 06L and outbound on 24L. However the wind direction shifts approx 20% of the year and this flow is reversed. During the quieter period of 12.00pm to 15.00pm, the airport reverts to single runway use and uses 24R / 06L (Runway 1) for both inbound and outbound flights

13th Floor of Multi storey car park - Terminal 1. There is an aviation shop here, some pay telescopes and some thoughtfully provided camera holes in the security fences. Be warned however that this is a short-stay airport car park and is very expensive for vehicles!

The shown location of the AVP on the linked Google map, is wrong.
      
The A.V.P is situated off the A538 between Junction 6 of the M56 motorway and the airport tunnels.
