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
