Stansted - spotting

Post by razzer56 » Sun Jul 22, 2018 2:26 pm

Can any one please advise if you can still go into the area by Harrods to see Aircraft.
I did see sometime ago that this is a private area and might now out of bounds so to speak.
Last time I visited some 2 years ago you could park in a pay and display car park for £1
If this area is taboo,can you advise where we can see if there are any visiting Mil/Govt Aircraft please
Any info greatfully received
M.T.I.A

You should be parking in the pay and display car park ( that is where the police suggest you go if you are spoken to elsewhere) I was there recently and the ticket machine was out of order.

As far as I know you can ONLY walk to the section of fence opposite the parking lay-bys and not wander off to Harrods or universal but that is ok as you can see nearly everything. In other words park in the carpark and walk to the traditional spotting zone by the old drop off zone.

You can of course still park in Belmer road to monitor the movements.
