London Gatwick 31-12-19 (10:00 – 13:10)

 

Despite the gloomy weather a trip to Gatwick was undertaken. the landing runway was 08, and we decided to park in the layby along Charlwood Road opposite the Maple Manor hotel. From the layby, aircraft can be seen through the trees as they land or taxy to take-off, but isn’t any good in summer when the trees are in full leaf. I wanted to get some landing shots, and we therefore walked five minutes along Charlwood Road until the curve which is near the threshold of 08, and by standing just by the fence to a field you can catch aircraft on short finals. the spot is near a busy road but there are very limited options at Gatwick. By crossing the road it is just about possible to get photos of aircraft lining up, although a small set of steps are required to get unobstructed views above the inner fence (you will also be shooting through an outer fence). not ideal but such is life!
