also has the viewing shop re-open as wanna spend some money on the model collection
There a couple of good photo spots (one at either end of the runway) where you can get good pics of aircraft taking off and/or landing (depending on which runway is in use).
I usually park at the far end of Long Stay Car Park No. 1 as close to the runway threshold as possible. From here, you can also get decent shots of aircraft taxiing to and from the Terminal buildings. It costs £3.50 an hour - which is a lot less than you pay elsewhere. Just one note of caution - the position of the sun means that any photos will be backlit after about 3.00 p.m. (which means they'll be rejected by the screeners on this and other aviation websites).
For more info., take a look at the Birmingham Airport Guide (by clicking on the 'Airport Guide' link above).
