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 You can normally see one or two of their light aircraft parked up outside as well as a withdrawn RAF Wessex hulk and Aldergrove's Rescue Training ex-BA Trident G-AVFE.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 regularly, but even though it is a control zone, they will sometimes let you stay for a while if you talk nice to them :).

During 2007 it appeared that work was going to commence along Seacash Road to develop airport hanger and industrial facilities. However this work has failed to materialise (as of March 08) with only a builders storage area left to "threaten" any existing views.
