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.

Line 61: Line 61:  
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 railway bridge, with some buildings to your left hand side. This is Aldergrove village, you can see it on the map accessible from the top right of this page. 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.

===Runway 35 Approach===
 +
 +
If you go to the nearest 35 approach road, this has 'Control Zone' signs on it from a fair distance back.
 +
However, there is a road called the Crosshill Road which gives splendid views overlooking the 35 threshold.
 +
This can be found just off the Manse Road on the South side of the airport. Coming from Nutts Corner, take the Nutts Corner Road, signposted to Crumlin, the one before the road to the airport, and turn off at the Manse Road junction on the bend. Crosshill Road is the first on your right after that. There is a signpost to Crosshill B & B at the corner.
 +
You can drive right up near the end of it, and still be in a no restriction area, and have great views over the 35 T/H beside a farmers field with a large grass verge.
