Did you have to pay just to park or just when you cross the fence?

Paid when you went to the enclosure. In 2015 they were checking people in the carpark to see if they had a ticket, not sure this year as we just paid up and went in.

In 2014 we didn't have to pay for the car park maybe we were lucky lol , didn't want to pay 20 quid each as we didn't get there till 1130, if we arrived at 8am fair enough.

Which Park & View would one recommend? East or West?

Thanks,

Depends on what you want! East is all taxiing and line up shots, West is a mix of taxiing and airbourne. Some of the aircraft stay pretty low so can be very nice shots especially if they tip a wing.
If you're not into photography I guess it's still the same, what would interest you more?
Without knowing what your interest is no one can tell you which is best as everyone on here will have a different idea of what they want.

Thanks..i am into photography and most probably will be using a 70-300mm lens. West sounds interesting..my only concern is if the aircraft have already gained some altitude. But as long as they stay low it would not be a problem.

I understand you cannot go from east to west..is that correct?

I said some stay low, there are many that won't. You can't go from one to the other across the base but there is nothing stopping you from going from east to west outside using the public roads.

Obviously it also depends on the wind direction as to which end they take off from.

Queued for opening of East last year for first time. People were actually running to get prime spots. Got some good taxi shots but was not in the prime spot directly looking down the runway. After queuing for an hour prior to gates opening I feel I will give the West a go this year as possibly more chance of getting a few more peachy shots. As has been previously said, possibly many times. Each to their own and you definitely need to try different locations to see what works for you. Fingers crossed. :thumbs:

In the years I've been doing departure days they have always taken off east to west no matter which direction the wind is blowing. That said, it's never been overly windy.
