Visit to Manchester airport 20 July 2013

Post by Zulfiqar »

Had to make an early morning visit to MAN today and had just enough time to go visit the T1 car park. Here are a few photos.

Thomson 787- first time for me to see a B787.

Terminal 2 view- I was there to collect relatives on the Virgin A333 flight.

Great shots! Nice to know there are still views to be had from the car parks as there are none worth viewing left at Heathrow, Gatwick or Stansted car parks.

thanks!

yes , this is a popular spot for lots of spotters and you may have seen photos on different websites (a.net etc) taken from the same spot. I also had a chance to drive to the car hire village at MAN. This is also a great place to see planes parked, as well as taking off or landing, really up close. Unfortunately, I did not have time to take any photos from there.

Thanks Zulfiqar. Will keep this is mind next time I go up north! On previous visits I have only been to the viewing area next to where the Concorde is.
